I use self study formats whenever possible.

“Being in public accounting, it is difficult to find the time to attend many live seminars, therefore I use self study formats whenever possible. Checkpoint Learning by far is the best. I no longer have to track what courses I have taken and when I took them. It is all done for me through Checkpoint Learning. If I need to access my course completion certificates, all I need to do is sign onto my online account and there it is under the Activity History tab. Convenient and easy to use.”
