Please note that this is a "text-based", not a "video-based" course. The materials are downloaded by the user, read and absorbed, and then the user takes the review and final assessment online at Illumeo as usual, where, once passed, all CPE is tracked and kept for long-term reference.

This course is designed to meet the four (4) hour ethics CPE requirement for Colorado CPAs.

I feel like I have taken this course before from another provider. It is "dry" without any slides, video, or other supporting materials. There seemed to be an excessive focus on commissions.

I liked the materials of the course in pdf format. Quizzes in the form of multiple choice were very helpful. Also, I really liked the explanation of the wrong and write choices

Good course, easy and interesting examples. The final exam was a bit confusing, a few typos and the last question didn't seem to have a correct option.

Text-based courses are more difficult vs video courses. But this was a requirement for my license.
