The Gear Up 1040 seminar was the best of its kind
I can easily say the Gear Up 1040 seminar was the best of its kind I've attended, and I've attended many. The instructors were very knowledgeable and experienced and gave real-world examples from their many years in practice. There was an emphasis on tax-planning and the text for the course was so good I referred to it all tax season. I highly recommend this seminar to other tax professionals.

AuditWatch – the best training I've ever been to
Excellent materials, instructor was very good as a teacher as well as a communicator. Best training I've ever been to.
Gear Up locations are terrific!
Gear Up locations are terrific! I’ve been an accountant for 39 years, and I really like being able to plan vacation time around completing my CPE.
Оne of the best trainings I have received
I thought the program content was incredibly relevant and one of the best trainings I have received. I found it very applicable to the issues I face as not only an auditor, but as one who supervises staff on an almost daily basis.
