Accounting Training

At Mind the GAAP, we pride ourselves in developing courses that don’t simply recite accounting theory. Instead, we want participants to be able to apply the concepts discussed. Accordingly, our courses tend to be about 25% group discussion and 75% case studies, activities, and games.

And unlike CPE firms that offer large, generic classes, Mind the GAAP customizes each training session to focus only on the issues most important to our clients.

We have expertise in a variety of industries, including life sciences, technology, manufacturing, construction, telecommunications, software, real estate, not-for-profits, and financial services.

Our training materials comply with NASBA, state, and international standards, meaning that we provide CPE credit for all of our courses.

Want to see us in action? Watch Scott Ehrlich, President of Mind the GAAP, lead a session on the Accounting for Complex Debt and Equity Financings, with a focus on Simple Agreements for Future Equity or SAFEs.  This session was recorded at the AICPA & CIMA ENGAGE 2023 conference in Las Vegas, Nevada on June 7, 2023.
