Testimonial concerning the virtual event: "My knowledge was "hit and miss" and had been gathered piece meal style. You put an orderly format to all the different pieces of the IT audit process so that it made sense. I realized I understood IT auditing better than I thought. You arranged your presentation so that at the end, the slides would give us a big picture in bites that we could absorb."

These two e-learning approaches: webinars and on-demand self-study with extended web access to our content into the global continuing professional development (CPD) marketplace. In the webinar e-learning events we will limit the number of students to maximize the interaction between the live instructor and attendees. The on-demand self-study e-learning modules will be created and offered to meet the NASBA CPE credit requirements .
