  • 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.

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!

Great refresher course. Not wordy. Does a great job bringing me up to date as the computer programs do most of the work nowadays.

The last half or so of the course had nothing to do with divorce. The test was strange with question 107 seeming to have the man marry his daughter!
