Personal and Professional Ethics for Florida CPAs

Overview

In recognition of the effect that their actions or inactions may have on other people, professionals in many different fields are required to regularly complete continuing education on the subject of ethics as it applies to their particular field of endeavor. This requirement is intended to serve as a regular reminder to individuals who are placed in positions of responsibility that they have an obligation to honor the trust that is placed in them by those whom they serve.

This entertaining and thought-provoking course is presented here in a rarely considered context. This course examines the basic principles of ethics that we all know quite well, but often fail to apply in our personal and professional lives. As the pressures related to career advancement and personal accomplishments mount, we sometimes abandon the traits that are basic to success. This course is designed to help participants identify those traits and reexamine their behavioral and professional priorities.
