Hello RSM coworkers! I am thrilled to be moving to RSM into a Scheduler roll. I just found out yesterday and want to be as prepared as possible in the next steps. So here are my questions. How long does the background study take? I'm guessing admin staff have a study that is faster and less complicated than someone in Tax ect. When training at home what did you need that wasn't supplied by RSM? My home office is well stocked but I want to be as prepared as possible. Thanks in advance!
