IDEA Training

Hands down, IDEA is easier to use than other analytics tools, but learning a new technology on your own can be akin to taking a road trip without a map. You may eventually get there, but it will probably take you longer. We provide directions and short cuts that help you quickly navigate through learning IDEA.

Avoid the starts and stops associated with learning on your own. We give you practical techniques to maximize your use of IDEA, and the opportunity to earn CPE credit. More importantly, we increase your productivity. We offer some unique benefits including:

  • 1st Class Training Instructors – We’ve served as the sole U.S. distributor of IDEA for 20 years – we know this product inside and out. Our instructors are Certified Public Accountants (CPAs) and/or Certified Fraud Examiners (CFEs) with experience working in the trenches of accounting, audit and finance. Plus, they make learning fun…now that’s worth looking into!
  • All Levels Welcome – We offer courses for all experience levels: Basic, Intermediate and Advanced. To get you started, we offer free learning resources including free IDEA Webcasts & On-Demand Videos, tutorials (installed with IDEA) and live support via our IDEA Help Desk.
  • Convenient & Cost Effective – Tight travel budgets don’t have to impact your training. We offer online Distance Learning courses, free Webcasts, regional Public Training and Seminars – or let us come to you with our On-Site Training. Our training courses are affordable, offer CPE credit and provide you with materials to reference so you retain more of what you’ve learned.

Training Options
Public Training & Seminars - In-person, hands-on courses offered at all levels to improve your skills.
Distance Learning - Variety of courses offered online to improve your use of IDEA in specific areas.
Webcasts & Videos - Free and perfect for new users as an introduction, or as a refresher for current users.
On-Site Training - We come to you with hands-on training that is convenient and cost-effective.

Sharing Best Practices
In 2012, we started a series of IDEA Independent User Groups (IIUGs). Led by IDEA users with one goal – help fellow users get more out of IDEA. Join one in your area, or start one of your own! We offer resources to help you along the way including communications to participants, materials, guest presenters and more!
