Editor's Note
Gail Perry, CPA, Managing Editor We’ve taken a close look at continuing education this week, with a keen eye toward assessing the value of the training you get, considering pros and cons of in-house versus outsourced education, and looking at what kind of training will best suit the millennials who are joining the workforce. We’ve also gone beyond training for accountants to consider training by accountants, looking at the types of training sessions that accountants might offer to their clients. I wish I could tell you that you’ll earn CPE credit for reading these articles, but the next best thing is that we give you the lowdown on how to get certified by NASBA to offer your own CPE classes.

Best wishes,
Gail Perry, CPA
Managing Editor
