I usually dread taking ethic courses every 4 years but found this course very informative and very interesting. The presenter chose interesting real life situations and was able to relate to me to he point that I could review my conduct regarding clients in the past and how to implement a change in future handling of several clients.

Great ethic webinar. Very helpful. A must for CPAs. Speaker was excellent. I learned a lot of details about the way practicing CPA's will be impacted in their practice because of new environment and regulations
