Lecturer was very clear. I feel sometimes CPE courses get way too deep in the weeds but the instructor was concise, hit on the key points and I left feeling I learned something.

This was great learning about the yellow book rules. I have went through an audit personally until this year working for a government entity. Usually the audit I been through were in private companies and they were mostly internal audits, so this was nice to listen how much work goes into the external audits.

I work for a municipal government and this course, although not specifically associated with my job, offered insight as to the audit function carried out by the outside auditors and offered some thinking points for my position and how I view internal processes.

Such a helpful presentation! Being a non-profit controller of an agency that receives nearly $1,000,000 in annual federal funding, these new regulations will have a significant impact on my work! I am happy to have a better understanding after this webinar.
