  • I have taken multiple courses from The CPE Discount Store.  They have great customer support and I received my certificate of completion on the same day.

  • The CPE Discount Store offers a great selection of online CPE courses.   I was able to complete my course on my time frame which is a great way to take CPE.  Having the book as a reference for future work was also helpful.

  • The CPE Discount Store course materials are very straight forward and easy to understand, I particularly like the website and customer follow up to my questions.

We are required to take our Ethics courses every year and although these are important to remind us of an essential part of our work that if damaged, could destroy our career and possibly our organization. But these courses tend to become repetitive and mundane. I particularly liked this course for its case studies. One is about a female executive at Enron and her role prior to the Enron demise. The author makes you really think about how ethical is really ethical. If you take the course I think you’ll understand what I mean. Maintaining complete ethical behavior towards your organization, your clients, and the public is very difficult sometimes and I think you have to totally step back to see your situation most clearly in order to do what’s right.
This is a nice course which helped me get my required CPE.
Poorly written, many questions were nonsensical and the material was very old. This product was noted as a 2018 version but the quiz tested us on knowledge from the mid nineties. Very, very poor course and I would not recommend it to anyone.
