Webinars & CPE
Willard J. De Filipps, CPA has been teaching other CPAs and accounting / tax professionals since the early 1970s. While he continues to develop and present intensive training programs and in-house seminars, Mr. De Filipps more recently has been sharing his expertise and experience with many professionals and advisors through De Filipps University’s brief (usually 2-hour) webinars.
All De Filipps University webinar programs and intensive training offerings are presentations created by Mr. De Filipps personally during which he discusses in-depth, technical and practical insights and also his conclusions, practices and suggestions for dealing with troublesome aspects of the topics covered. Continuing Professional Education (CPE)† credits are no longer available for any live presentation.
Mr. De Filipps designs his presentations so that De Filipps U participants obtain personal access to his lengthy experience as a tax practitioner and consultant to CPA firms on matters relating to general tax issues, automobile dealership issues and the Last-In, First-Out (LIFO) inventory valuation method.
De Filipps University webinars are typically 2-hour presentations (usually presented live) which include comprehensive outlines and detailed supplementary materials (all in pdf format). For our webinar presentations, a computer with a fast internet connection and speakers (or headset capability) are required.*
Prior to the presentation, registered participants receive an e-mail with access instructions and a link to the pdf file of the webinar course materials. For a per-site registration fee, an unlimited number of attendees at a physical site can participate in the webinar via a shared computer set-up.
During each live presentation, question and answer times are included. Participants may e-mail their questions either before or during the webinar. Mr. De Filipps responds during the webinar, and he also makes time available for follow-up questions and discussion through his “office hours” (done by e-mail and telephone contact).
The De Filipps University Recordings Library contains Recordings of every De Filipps U webinar presentation. Participants who are unable to join the live presentation can view the entire webinar playback later and receive the complete outline and all of the comprehensive supplementary materials. These Recordings are available for purchase following the live airing of each presentation. Each Recording purchase includes a copy of the program's detailed presentation outline and comprehensive supplementary reference materials in PDF format.
