‘Welcome to accountingcpd.net, home to high quality cpd for accountants. Written by some of the field’s leading names, our courses are designed to stimulate, challenge, help you grow professionally and give you the cpd you need.’


So proclaims the home page of Accounting CPD – a Nelson Croom published website, launched at the end of September, where accountants can access relevant e-learning materials.


A recent post on the site’s blog offers a rationale for the site: ‘At accountingcpd.net we talk a lot about ‘genuine online learning’ experiences …The reason is simple. We believe the majority of online learning offered to accountants is rubbish. Why? Because learning – online or otherwise – should challenge, stimulate, engage and develop you. Not just enable you to put a tick in the CPD box.’


Comment: Full marks to Nelson Croom for its intent – although accountants are not noted for being enterprising and web-literate enough to find a website (and interact with it) by themselves.
