Continuing education opportunities are abundant, but few pack the punch of what we’ve assembled in The AccountingWEB Academy
San Jose, Ca (Vocus/PRWEB) November 24, 2010
The Academy combines the convenience of online training delivered on the CPE Link platform with high-caliber speakers handpicked by AccountingWEB publisher Rob Nance. Rob says, “Continuing education opportunities are abundant, but few pack the punch of what we’ve assembled in The AccountingWEB Academy.” Many Academy speakers are also members of the Bloggers Crew on AccountingWEB.com– sharing their expertise with blog readers.
The Academy curriculum features topics relevant for today’s practitioner. Currently, Excel training is very popular. 'We’ve got a dozen courses on different aspects of using Excel,' says CPE Link program director, Sue Anderson, 'and they all fill to capacity. What’s so hot about Excel? Many accountants have never received any formal Excel training. As a result, they are spending more time than necessary to get their work done and maybe even opening themselves up to potential errors. Looking to right the wrongs of being self-taught, accountants are now seeking Excel training.
The AccountingWEB Academy faculty features experienced and highly-rated webcast speakers. Spreadsheet experts, David Ringstrom, CPA and Christopher Wood, CPA teach sessions on Excel. Larry Perry, CPA focuses on compilation and review, topics related to doing efficient small audits, and basic staff training for audit procedures. Amy Vetter tackles technology related areas. Look for more speakers and webcasts scheduled for 2011.
