LC

CG

N/A

MR

Excellent course on Significant Deficiencies and Material Weaknesses. I've already recommended it to colleagues.

DD

Perhaps a little long on the history section, and a number of examples were duplicated throughout the video

KK

The only issue I experienced was a lag in the video and appears the program restarted at a point after a question session. Overall, however, this was my first time utilizing this tool and I will continue to check for classes and take them.......thanks, Keith

SL

This presentation was excellent and the presenter was very knowledgeable and very easy to listen to. I found that I was answering her out loud through the presentation, which doesn't happen often. Please review this program, however, as it was a 3 phase 7-hour presentation. Phase 1 and 2 were perfect but there was a technical glitch for Phase 3. Phase 3 starts but there was a blip in the video and it returned to Phase 2. I reported it multiple times through the presentation but did not receive feedback. It will become more of a problem if this is presentation is repeated, especially as an on-demand seminar.

RH

Good information about ethics in a corporate environment.

SL

This webinar was very well done and covered the material very well with updates as needed. Thanks so much!

GL

Only issue - I could not find the ending time of the webinar anywhere, and it went an hour longer than I expected. Would be nice to know ahead of time when the webinar will end.

GA

the presentation went into a loop and repeated a section. as a result it ran over and the moderator cut it off abruptly at the 90 minute mark. the presentation is probably good but the playback was flawed.

RH

While the subject matter was well presented and met its objectives, the course material wasn't particularly relevant to a Canadian CPA except at a very general level

MP

The webinar was obviously pre-recorded. After one of the polls, the previous section started again. Instead of correcting it, they allowed the section to be repeated in it's entirety. I asked a question about it and received no response. As a result, the webinar went past the 2 hour time. I also asked about this in the chat and was told the webinar would be 2 hours. Not correct.

KM

The course has some poorly-written review questions and final exam question/answer options. The final exam material did not represent what was in the course very well.

WA

Forcing people to submit an evaluation of a paid program to get the confirmation they completed it is not okay.
