    Lots of information to review in a short period of preference moving forward would be to attend in person courses as opposed to remote. Overall really good experience though.

  • Ryann M., Program Manager Jun 2, 2023

    Instructor was very knowledgeable and made the learning atmosphere non-threating, very good learning environment. He stayed engaged in the content and used recent examples which made it easier to relate to.

    Great class. Lots of content covered. I appreciate how we started at the basics of accounting and moved through the modules to see how it all worked together for finance concepts at the end.
