KT

Melisa was very knowledgeable and helpful, and very interested in the topic. I learned numerous new concepts today which help me further appreciate the differences between NFP and other entities. Great job! Also, he reiterated if someone has future questions regarding NFP, he is more than happy to serve as a resource and encouraged folks to contact him

DC

Educational detailed informational presentation explained by a knowledgable presenter. I’ve learned enough to get started with ACS 606 to go further with the understanding thank you Melisa.

RV

BA

The pace of the course was almost too fast because there was so much content that was being delivered, but it was delivered in a very effective way.

KK

The trainer was well prepared and informative. I would highly recommend this to anyone with an interest in governmental and nonprofit accounting.

SS

The program was very informative. Both presenters seemed to be knowledgeable about the subject. (PPP Loans and Loan Forgiveness)

EP

LC

CF

BW

Good course

DM

Very Informative

JK

Well worth the time

JR

Excellent speaker

RB

The presenter is very knowledgeable in displaying the effects of performance obligation on ASC 606 implementation. I really enjoyed her presentation, The bases of the topic are covered and the instructor gives straight answers when polls are swayed one way!

HG

It is a fast pace lecture. It gives you a general idea what the subject is about. If you need to grasp more of it probably you will have to do more work afterward: spent more time in the subject or learn on your own.

ZD

I never received an answer to my question in Q&A.

SS

The instructors were great but the online video kept freezing.

EB

Great

HG

I am hard of hearing. The instructor sometimes spoke too fast and the handouts were sometimes sketchy. I realize that closed captioning can be expensive, but providing it would help those who are deaf or hard of hearing.

Good materials , good presenter, but way too long.. or maybe that was just me being a spoiled rotten brat..

REW

A Good Overview of an Evolving Area
