15 Jul Client Feature: California CPA Education Foundation
After getting started with QuickBooks courses traveling with Doug Sleeter and Jim McCraigh and teaching at Diablo Valley College in the mid-1990s, I was given the opportunity to create and present the QuickBooks courses for the California CPA Education Foundation (CCEF) in 1997. Now, more than a decade later, I still love working with that organization and enjoy their audiences.
CCEF has been expanding their offerings from just full day events, conferences, and CPE weeks, to include more webcasts. In addition they have a very impressive list of instructors including Jeff Lenning, the best Excel guy I know, and Adrian Stern, a CPA from southern CA who speaks on a variety of fraud topics.
I personally could not be happier that CCEF is expanding their webcast offerings. It provides a great way for providing specific QuickBooks related topics in the length of time that makes sense. There are two hour internal control and fraud offerings as well as full day accounting and auditing courses. Many of the courses are available for self-study. Plus, since our client base and newsletter subscribers are from all over the United States and beyond, this provides a great way for everyone to be able to take advantage of these learning opportunities.
