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

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!

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.
