PD Credits on this site

Every year, like you, I have to take 20 hours of verifiable training.  Thing is, I’m so busy keeping up with my job, I don’t have a lot of time to go to offsite courses.  What’s worse, much of the training I am doing is not verifiable.  I’m reading articles, studying manuals, or testing a variety of ideas in the various efforts we all go through to work smarter. Often, while I’m researching something technical, I wish, “Wouldn’t it be great to have a quiz at the end of this article, to get credit for the half-hour or hour I’ve spent learning something new...”.  Finally, I figured maybe I should build a site like that. Each lesson, most comprised of one article, has a quiz at the end.  Most of the lessons on this site are worth from a half to a full CPD credit each - bite-sized nuggets of information you can use immediately AND get credit for.  There is no limit to how many times you take a test (until you pass, of course) and passing grades are all 80%.  As you progress, you’ll want to try some of the Projects - these are Excel-based applications which show you how to build useful tools that bring together and augment the learning you’ve developed from the lessons.  These are longer works, usually 2 or more hours (and CPD credits) each. By the way, this site doesn’t stop at Excel training.  There is also training on data extraction from databases, so you can free yourself of the IT burden.  You can get your own data, when you want it, how you want it.  I’ll show you how. This is not a static site.  More content will be added at intervals throughout the year, all aimed at better-equipping the practicing accountant to work smarter - you already work hard enough.  Oh, and they’ll all carry verifiable PD credits as well.
