Course Description

The amount of change in the accounting profession is staggering, making it tough for the average CPA to keep up. For those CPAs in industry, this can be especially difficult as many of your responsibilities go far beyond accounting. Therefore, this course will focus on issues of interest to those accountants who work in industry, rather than public accounting. It will not cover any compilation, review, audit issues, or practice management. In this course, Jeff Sailor will bring his truly unique presentation style to cover the most important topics you need to know. He will present the latest GAAP pronouncements, along with his signature video parodies, which are designed to keep you awake and reinforce the material.


Jeff Sailor, CPA

Jeff Sailor, CPA, received a master’s degree in accounting from the University of Florida. Upon graduation, he joined the auditing staff at Peat Marwick in Jacksonville, Florida, where he worked on a large number of national accounts. Jeff has managed his own accounting firm in Ocala, Florida, since 1984. During that time, he has also developed unique auditing approaches and auditing software.

Since 1992, Jeff has been teaching accounting and auditing courses he developed to combat traditional “boring CPE.” Using a variety of creative teaching methods sprinkled with humorous video spoofs, Jeff is able to combine his in-depth accounting insights with humor in high-energy presentations. He’s also adept at presenting complex topics in a very practical, easy-to-understand manner, thus earning him rave reviews for more than 20 years. Jeff currently presents seminars, webcasts, and in-house instruction for Western CPE. He’s also a featured speaker at national conferences as well as at state and regional meetings.

For more than 10 years, Jeff has served as an AICPA peer reviewer, focusing on small firms and sole practitioners.
