Great course

  • 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.

Good course. Well written. EXCEPT, The authors slam on \'Democrats at page 11-11 was pretty stupid, immature and not welcomed. You can do better than that. For that one dig, you get 4 stars.

The course is worth the time and effort.
Love the courses. Wish there was more selection!
This has to be one of the most poorly written courses I have ever taken. There were typos, conflicting answers in the review questions, poorly-worded statements and questions. I\'ve taken many better ethics courses over the years. This course was a disappointment!
