I attended the last week in MN, but I am assuming that it is all the same. I got a lot out of it. If you have been to the 1st week, you can expect the same type of class structure & testing. Deffinately worth attending.

I went to the MO Week 1 audit school. It was SO GOOD!!! I learned SO MUCH!!! I am actually looking forward to Week 2 in Minneapolis. The instructors were great and the material will be so helpful in developing my audit program. The only complaint I have is I think I gained 5 pounds, you are never short on food!!!

Just got back from the full two weeks in MO. It was very intense and YES the audit IV test is very hard. You really need to have accounting term knowldege. It was a very good school but I am very tired. I AM CERTIFIED!!! Now I diet and sleep.

It was great... They cram a boat load of information in to your head, but well worth the plane trip.

You can find the information on the Idependent Community Bankers of America (ICBA) website. I am going to try to go for the full 2 weeks in September. It is being held in Minneapolis September 7-19.

Take a pad for your back and hinny... You do get breaks and food. You will gain 10 lbs.

Do you recommend doing one week at a time, or both weeks back-to-back? I'm considering going to Minneapolis in September.

Two weeks was hard being away from my family. I however, did meet others that were in the TW club and we had a good time. I would do the two weeks again. I liked getting it over and some of the harder information was repeated in other classes so it helped make things clearer. Watch out for tornados in MO..... We got to see the basment of the Embessy suites.

I attended week one in Minneapolis during 9-11. That was interesting! A little tough to stay focused on the task at hand, but it was handled very well with plenty of breaks to watch the news.

Personally, I liked doing each week separately. I met several people who I keep in contact with frequently. It was really great to be able to see them again 6 months later at week two (as well as make more new friends)

It was a very good course. There was a lot of information presented in a very short period of time (relatively speaking!) and I'm still suffering from information overload. Two weeks is a killer especially towards the end of the second week, but it was well worth it.

I wanted to go but we have Examiners coming right before then. There is no way they will let me out of the bank.

It was fun!! The hardest part to me was standing in line to get your test graded... I don't think anyone had to have retakes.

I must defend myself...I was never hanging from my toes. My toes were frozen because it was so cold in there. C.A.R. just couldn't hear very well!
