This was a great refresher on ethics in a professional setting and VBOA rules and requirements. This will serve practically when considering CPA requirements.

The course was very informative and effective. I feel more "in the know" with the key information that was highlighted in the presentation. I appreciated the use of the case studies along the way to help me absorb the material. The instructor spent significant time clarifying volunteerism requirements. The refresher on CPE requirements was informative as well. I also truly appreciated the update on the legislative changes as I was not aware of the recent change with the grace period for renewal and the single renewal date being implemented. Although I wasn't looking forward to the exam at the end, as the information was presented so well the exam was a breeze having scored 100% the first time around.
