Easy to Understand

“Melisa has accomplished the difficult task of explaining complex financial concepts with every day and easy-to-read language that even those brand new to the nonprofit world can understand.

Level Training

Are you looking to build more robust audit fundamental skills?

Perhaps you work at a firm that provides “on the job training” but no formal new hire education or maybe you want to explore switching to audit and want to learn the basics. Our level training cohorts are a great place to master the fundamentals of auditing. These cohorts are a mix of learners from different firms which allows you to hear stories and bounce ideas off of others in similar positions. Our instructor Jaclyn understands what it is like to walk in your shoes and fosters a sense of community to create meaningful relationships so you have someone you can call on when you are stuck. From brand-new interns to seasoned seniors, our cohorts cater to various experience levels. We offer cohorts several times per year so you can solidify your audit skills whenever you are ready.

Delightful and Interactive

Testimonials


“I really enjoy how a decompression time is built into this course or starts a fun way for us to get to know our groups, other people and get comfortable to answer questions. She’s really interactive which is great to make sure everyone is learning and understanding the material presented.

Keep it up! As a non-native speaker, I really can follow your course. Thanks Jaclyn! :)”


Presenter is delightful.  I generally disdain live trainings like this, but her pace and clarity make her one of my favorites. 

She was great at giving examples to tie the knowledge into everyday life and how we can be more skeptical! I really enjoyed this section and was not bored for a second!
