In December of 2008, Gleim had a solar electricity generating system installed on the rooftop of its main building at 4201 N.W. 95th Blvd. in Gainesville, FL. Things have been sunny ever since.
Dr. Irvin Gleim, President of Gleim Publications, states, "We see ourselves as stewards of the environment. Gleim, a growing company of over 100 employees, recycles all paper, cardboard, aluminum, steel cans, glass bottles, plastic bottles, wrapping, steel shipping bands, and styrofoam. Gleim is so successful in its endeavor to recycle everything it possibly can that the entire company throws away only the equivalent of a couple typical households' trash. Gleim is as green as they can get with the help and participation of each and every Gleim team member. OUR GREAT STORY In 1974 acclaimed University of Florida professor Irvin Gleim and his wife wrote the first Gleim CPA Review book. Their mission was to create an effective and affordable course that could be used by candidates that preferred self-study. In less than 6 years, Gleim sales to accounting students and CPA candidates rocketed to over 90% of the market, establishing Gleim as the CPA Prep Industry pioneer. With this early success under his belt, Dr. Gleim leveraged his accounting expertise in 1980 to self-publish what are now the most widely used CIA & CMA Review courses on the market. An avid pilot, he also applied his tried & true learning techniques to the aviation market, self-publishing pilot training books. The dozens of titles, as well as Test Prep, audios, and Gleim Online courses, are very widely used by pilots to pass FAA pilot knowledge tests and FAA practical (flight) tests. Also at this time in 1980, John Wiley assumed the publishing of the Gleim CPA Examination Review and Dr. Gleim remained as coauthor (Gleim/Delaney) until 1990. In 1994, Dr. Gleim re-entered the CPA review market under the Gleim name with innovative new books, Test Prep Software, audios, and online courses. He again added to Gleim's offerings in 1999 by releasing his standard-setting EA Review materials. Today, in addition to being a leader in CPA, CIA, CMA, EA and aviation certification prep, Gleim also publishes in-class materials for accounting professors and students as well as hundreds of hours of CPE credit for professional accountants. Gleim takes over 100,000 customer credit card numbers annually and, to date, we know of NO customer who has had a problem as a result of a credit card transaction with us. When you order online, you are protected by a secure server. All personal and billing information used in these order forms is encrypted so that the information cannot be read by another party. Gleim does NOT sell or share any customer information. WORD-OF-MOUTH We aim to please by providing more than what our customers expect. Gleim spends little on advertising and a lot on products and service to customers. We rely on word-of-mouth referrals. Please pass the word along. SUSTAINABILITY Gleim is an environmentally friendly company. See how our solar panel energy and recycling programs are making a difference. However, Gleim does it with style! There are many reasons why I love working for Gleim. What I love about working for Gleim can be summed up in just one word: Relationships. As a member of the Gleim sales team, I have built long-term relationships with my colleagues. For me, Gleim is more than an amazing place to work. It's also an incredible place to discover your potential and nurture your talents. I am continually challenged and each day is different. At Gleim, my colleagues are here to help me learn and grow. My supervisors are open to suggestions and new ideas. We are valued as assets instead of expenses. Gleim is more than a team. The best part about working for Gleim is our wonderful administrative staff who truly care about the happiness of their employees. Gleim provides the flexibility of schedules and support to succeed at work while maintaining quality time with your family. Gleim is an amazing company that has given me many opportunities for growth and self-improvement. Longevity has never been one of my strong suits but being employed by Gleim has allowed me the luxury of enjoying what I do. One of the goals of Gleim Publications is to stay on top of the latest and greatest ways to help people learn, whether it is accounting or aviation. As fast as technology grows, staying on top means things change daily and keeps life interesting. I have the utmost respect for Dr. Gleim and brag about his accomplishments regularly. He saw a need and he provided a solution. Now, several years later, he continues to help people advance their lifestyles with education. n the past, I've always worked for larger corporations and compared to Gleim, they just don't measure up. Something I could clearly see from day one was that the people of Gleim are wonderful to work with. One team, one vision, one goal. Dr. Gleim IRVIN N. GLEIM Irvin N. Gleim, Ph.D., CIA, CMA, CFM, CPA, CFII, is a Professor Emeritus at the Fisher School of Accounting, University of Florida. He has been active in both pilot and accountant training for over 45 years. His Knowledge Transfer Systems make learning and understanding an intuitively appealing process. Read what the "New Accountant" Magazine said about our founder. ARTICLE Most accountants have learned from Irvin Gleim. So have most pilots. CFII is the Federal Aviation Administration's (FAA's) acronym for Certified Flight Instructor - Instrument. Thus, the same person who authors the most widely used, self-published accounting certification exam review books is also authorized to teach you how to fly an airplane. Since earning his doctoral degree in accounting from the University of Illinois in 1971, Dr. Gleim has been involved in the development of CPA review courses. Writing his own review manuals for accounting certification exams was a natural extension of his proclivity for teaching. In 1980, Dr. Gleim added pilot training books to his product line. Accounting and Aviation? If this seems like a strange mix to you, you are not alone. Dr. Gleim, CEO of Gleim Publications, Inc., explains: "One of the first questions accountants usually ask me is how I got involved in pilot training. I took an undergraduate flight training course at the University of Illinois. Since that time, flying has become part of my everyday life. Incorporating aviation-related materials into my company's product line has allowed me to have my cake and eat it too. Dr. Gleim flies himself wherever he needs to go, whether for a family weekend at the beach or a business meeting. The main advantages are time saved and unparalleled scheduling flexibility. The pilots of the world (hundreds of thousands who have now used Gleim products to pass their FAA tests) probably wonder why Dr. Gleim would be interested in accounting; the answer to that question is more interesting than you might think. As an accounting professor at Pittsburgh State University (PSU), Dr. Gleim met his future wife and partner for life. After one year at a then big eight accounting firm and several years teaching at PSU and Illinois State University, Irvin, with his wife Darlene, settled in Gainesville at the University of Florida, where he is now retired as Professor Emeritus. While raising their children, Darlene edited and typed the first CPA Examination Review manual on the kitchen table. "I had my work space set up on the dining room table," recalls Dr. Gleim. This home-grown business has blossomed into a company that processes thousands of orders per week for customers around the world. Gleim aviation products are available for the private pilot certificate (flying for yourself or leisure) through advanced ratings like the airline transport pilot and flight engineer. The accounting line includes all the certifications listed after Dr. Gleim's name plus a new product, EA Review, for the IRS Special Enrollment Exam. More information on the exams themselves is available in the How to Succeed in Accounting booklet on the Gleim web page at www.gleim.com. As author of over 200 current titles, many of which have corresponding interactive Test Prep Software, audio lectures, and continuing professional education (CPE) courses, Dr. Gleim has his hands perpetually full. Balancing this workload with his commitment to his wife, three children, and five grandchildren requires a disciplined, practical, goal-oriented approach to life. Rather than give up flying, which some consider a hobby, Dr. Gleim has added over a dozen books to help pilots pass their knowledge (written) and practical (flight) tests. "I noticed a lot of similarities in the two fields," said Dr. Gleim. "Most people think they could never fly an airplane. Most students of accounting fear the CPA exam. If you can drive a car and ride a bike, you can learn to fly. If you can complete your accounting degree and dedicate yourself for a few months to serious study and hard work, you can and will pass the CPA exam with the Gleim system." Dr. Gleim has proved his dedication to the accounting and aviation fields by printing two free publications for the past 25 years: How to Succeed in Accounting and Learn to Fly/Become a Pilot. With well over 1 million copies of each of these booklets in print, Dr. Gleim has been successful in his grass roots effort to promote certification of pilots and accountants. Flight instructors and accounting professors around the world call on Gleim Publications each semester to obtain their copies for distribution to their students. How to Succeed in Accounting is designed to help current and prospective accounting majors understand the various certifications available and the requirements for each. Learn to Fly/Become a Pilot contains a basic explanation of how airplanes work and an overview of various flight training options. Also discussed in both publications are study habits, the learning process, and clues about what to expect so as to assure successful completion of the exams. In closing, Dr. Gleim extends valuable advice to students and practitioners alike: "The bottom line is, be a success in whatever you choose to do with your life. People learn and grow as individuals and therefore need to find their own personalized system to achieve success. For me, making a career of the things I enjoy most was the only way to go. Lastly, remember that there is no substitute for studying diligently and effectively. Our ability to address the need for systematic, no-nonsense exam prep and study materials that get the job done right has contributed to the success of literally millions of accountants and pilots. It's fun to succeed and help others succeed. Join us by using and recommending Gleim to aspiring professionals, whether they be accountants or pilots!" Dr. Gleim's Contributions to Accounting Education Recognized by the University of Florida The Fisher School of Accounting (FSOA) at the University of Florida recognized the academic research and professional accomplishments of Dr. Irvin N. Gleim, President of Gleim Publications and Professor Emeritus at UF, on November 7, 2013, by naming the atrium in UF's Gerson Hall to recognize his contributions to accounting education. In addition, the FSOA has installed a plaque in the Dr. Irvin N. Gleim Atrium featuring Dr. Gleim's accomplishments. Dr. Gleim and his family were present at the announcement held during the Florida Institute of CPAs Annual UF Accounting Conference, which celebrated its 75th year. Dr. Gary McGill, Director of the Fisher School of Accounting at UF, presented the dedication and spoke about Dr. Gleim's many accomplishments and contributions to the field of accounting. Dr. Gleim, who taught thousands of the brightest accounting students at the University of Florida for 17 years, has also helped millions of accounting professionals to prepare to pass the CPA, CIA, CMA, and EA certification exams. The University of Florida acknowledged Dr. Gleim's review materials as "renowned accounting manuals that to this day are the field's authoritative learning resource." Al Warrington, namesake of the Warrington College of Business at the University of Florida, commended Dr. Gleim's mission of helping accounting students succeed in both the classroom and their careers. Dr. Gleim has assisted certification candidates and students for over 40 years. He sets rigorous standards for the courses offered by Gleim Publications and continually ensures that they are innovative and beneficial to the profession. In addition, he personally inspires and guides candidates across the globe and helps them further their professional careers in accounting.

Gleim Exam Prep is a profitable, stable company, founded by Dr. Irvin Gleim 40+ years ago.
He is a Professor Emeritis at the Fisher School of Accounting at the University of Florida. We have flexible work schedules, a casual work environment, opportunities for growth and leadership, a supportive, friendly team environment, competitive salaries and outstanding benefits. Gleim Solar Power - In December of 2008, Gleim had a solar electricity generating system installed on the rooftop of its main building at 4201 N.W. 95th Blvd. in Gainesville, FL. Things have been sunny ever since. The system, which was the largest in Gainesville when it was first activated, remains one of the largest of its kind. In addition, it is one of the few systems that is actually producing more electricity than the business is using, making Gleim a "net negative" user of energy. The Gleim system was the first feed-in tariff commercial system in the United States. Feed-in tariff systems were first promoted in Germany, which is now the world's largest solar market. Launched for the first time in the U.S. in March of 2009 by Gainesville Regional Utilities, a city-owned utility, the feed-in tariff program encourages local businesses to invest in renewable energy. Under the program, GRU, which serves some 90,000 customers, contracted to buy power back for 20 years at a predetermined price. Rates were determined by the size of the system installed. Dr. Irvin Gleim, President of Gleim Publications, states, "We see ourselves as stewards of the environment. Philosophically, making this investment was the right thing to do and fits with our existing operation. The GRU program made the decision to install the solar electricity generating system good business sense. Gleim is a smoke- and drug-free, safe, and family-oriented workplace located in Gainesville, Florida. Gleim Exam Prep is a profitable, stable company, founded by Dr. Irvin Gleim 40+ years ago.
