Through our family of brands, we meet the professional education needs of aspiring and experienced professionals in targeted verticals.


Accounting and Finance

The KnowFully Learning Group® can trace its roots to 1985, when a successful CPA named Jack Surgent began developing Continuing Professional Education (CPE) courses for Certified Public Accountants (CPAs) and other accounting and tax professionals. Thanks to a relentless focus on top-quality, timely, practical content and strong relationships with state-level CPA membership organizations across the U.S., Surgent quickly developed a reputation as the top provider of CPE for CPAs, as well as a loyal following that persists to this day.

In 2014, Surgent joined forces with Elizabeth Kolar, an innovative and highly successful CPA Review educator, to collaborate on the first adaptive learning-based prep course for the CPA Exam. The course turned the traditional CPA Review industry on its head by enabling CPA Exam candidates to study only what they did not already know, saving hundreds of hours of study time, while dramatically improving pass rates. Through continuous innovation and investment in the Artificial Intelligence (AI)-enabled course, Surgent quickly become a leading player in the Exam Review market, now providing adaptive courses for the EA Exam, the CMA Exam, the CIA Exam, and the CISA Exam.

Through Surgent and other KnowFully Learning Group brands, we deliver continuing professional education to CPAs, Certified Financial Planners (CFPs), Enrolled Agents (EAs), attorneys, estate planners, and a wide range of other accounting, tax, and finance professionals.


Though it joined the KnowFully Learning Group in 2019, PharmCon has been providing high-quality Continuing Education (CE) and Exam Preparation to pharmacists and  pharmacist technicians since 1990. PharmCon has grown to become the leading provider of live online continuing education.
