St. Charles Consulting Group Launches Virtual Classroom Service for U. S. Accounting Firms, Delivers High-Impact, Cost-Effective Continuing Professional Education (CPE)

Accountants experience the interactive benefits of live CPE training via a shared web-browser window, while eliminating travel, reducing opportunity costs, and minimizing program expense.

Saint Charles, IL (PRWEB) July 28, 2010

The St. Charles Consulting Group brings its proven CPE expertise to live classroom training on the web, delivering key benefits to clients:

  • Up to 75% savings over traditional classroom training
  • Accelerated content delivery and expanded reach
  • Reduced professional time away from clients
  • Employees engaged in timely, relevant learning
  • Opportunities for networking and knowledge sharing
  • On-demand learning through program rebroadcasts
St. Charles virtual classroom programs bring learners together online in a shared web-browser window, running audio and video along with presentation slides. When well designed, virtual classroom programs (also called webcasts and webinars) provide an interactive experience where learners can electronically “raise their hands,” react to surveys and polls, post online questions for presenters, and access handouts and other learning resources. The programs are designed to meet all CPE standards.

St. Charles partners with client firms to create virtual classroom programs with the latest content, instructional approaches, and webcast technology. “We complement what the client brings to the table,” according to St. Charles’ managing partner, Phil Davis. “As in most things related to training, one size does not fit all, and it is important to customize the solution to the specific needs of each firm.” Davis noted that, if an accounting firm does not already have a webcast delivery platform, St. Charles can deploy a state-of-the-art tool that has been endorsed by NASBA to meet all CPE requirements.

“In the current business environment,” in Davis’ view, “accounting firms can’t afford to sacrifice the quality of training. But, at the same time, they also can’t afford to train in the resource-intensive ways of the past. Virtual classrooms offer the best of both worlds – quality training at a manageable cost.”

St. Charles assigns top industry talent with skill sets as needed to steer accounting firm clients through any and all aspects of virtual classroom program design, development, and delivery.
