CPA, CA

I am an experienced CPA, CA with over 30 years of work experience in Finance & Accounting. I have spent the last 16 years in Recruitment, specializing in Finance & Accounting professionals. My career has involved a move from the firm to industry and was focused in Consumer Packaged Goods and the Pharma/Biotech industries in leadership roles. I made a career pivot into Recruiting and started my own boutique search firm; Maverick Consulting Group in 2015. I have interviewed thousands of candidates and have worked with hundreds of clients and one thing became very clear; CPA's need to improve their interviewing skills if they want to land that dream job. In addition to running my own business, I volunteer significant time to the CPA profession including a role as President of the Hamilton CPA Ontario Association. I am an avid gardener and missed my calling in landscape design. I am passionate about golf and the Seattle Seahawks.

Each profession and regulatory body has its own requirement. These requirements are in a state of flux. As a result of the changing nature of professional development requirements it’s best to visit your association’s website.

Each course is created by instructor(s). The main part of each course is a set of videos that you can watch on-demand. Courses can also include quizzes, articles and supporting resources like PDF, Excel and other documents.

The course starts as soon as you sign up - you will have full access to all course content and materials immediately and have up to 365 days to complete it.

Our Packages and Custom Package are subscription-based.

You can cancel the subscription anytime before the renewal date or within 10 days after the renewal and get a refund. No questions asked.

A Custom Package is a subscription-based service that allows you to select any courses from our platform within a specified number of total hours. Any courses that are available on the platform can be added to your Package.
