Description

Important Note: The purpose of this course is to fulfill the new GAGAS (i.e., Yellow Book) Qualification CPE requirement. As part of the 24-hour Yellow Book CPE requirement the new Yellow Book also requires four hours of CPE on the Yellow Book itself. This course not only fulfills that requirement, it also prepares you to excel in implementing the new Yellow Book. Learn precisely what the new Yellow Book does and does not require auditors to do.

The course materials utilize a highly illustrative and innovative format. Over 15 focused exercises are included to provide an enhanced knowledge of the new Yellow Book. Important Note: This course description is based on a proposed new CPE requirement contained in the 2017 Yellow Book revision exposure draft. Once the new Yellow Book is issued in final form (probably late 2017) we may adjust this description based on the finalized guidance. Please contact us regarding any questions that you may have.

With two active standard setters (i.e., the GASB and FASB), there are always important developments occurring in government and nonprofit accounting. Time is valuable and its hard to stay current in todays rapidly changing environment. Let us save you time and effort in staying current through this informative update course.

The purpose of this course is to enable you to excel in the constantly changing government and nonprofit environment. The course materials utilize a highly illustrative and innovative format. Over a dozen focused exercises are included to provide an enhanced working knowledge of the latest developments in government and nonprofit accounting.
