We offer custom continuing professional education to CPAs, focused on engaging learner experience and improved performance outcomes.

Education from Galasso Learning Solutions is for more than just compliance.

It’s CPE that is practical, current, and actionable.


Galasso Learning Solutions serves…

Accounting firms, professional associations, not-for-profit organizations, and governmental entities seeking to bring in high-quality CPE to their team members.

Clients who value quality education, desire interactive learning, and expect that CPE will be truly beneficial for their team, not simply a compliance box to check. 

Leaders building an engaged team that is current on best practices and empowered to better support their clients with excellence.

Organizations who are looking for a customized professional education option, not the dry, stale, outdated courses that they’ve had to utilize in the past.

We customize our training using instructional design and unique needs assessments to provide the right mix of learning experiences to each of the clients we partner with. This means that our courses are designed for adult learners and the topics we cover are customized to the needs of your team.

“Melisa is truly one of the best presenters I have ever heard in my entire public accounting career.

Her knowledge on the topics, her ease with summarizing, her tone, pitch, voice modulations, pauses were top notch. Not once did I feel bored or distracted during today’s webinar.”
