"I enjoy the online CPE because it allows for me to stay up-to-date with pertinent accounting issues while studying on my own time. I can pause the sessions and resume at my convenience. I feel the CPE is highly relevant as a majority of the sessions have lecturers who are experts in their field. The online interface that NYSSCPA utilizes is user friendly and allows me to easily sort by topic."
