Volunteer Your IFRS Expertise to Develop Questions for the Uniform CPA Examination

The AICPA Examinations Team is seeking professionals with solid skills and knowledge in International Financial Reporting Standards to develop questions (“items”) on IFRS for the Uniform CPA Examination. To qualify, volunteers must have a current CPA license or comparable internationally recognized credential, a minimum of three years of experience as a licensed professional, and expertise in the application of IFRS. Volunteers may not be affiliated with any Uniform CPA Examination review course.


Item Development Workshops conducted via Web conference (approximately 60 minutes) will provide instruction on item development. Volunteers then will submit a few items to AICPA Examinations team staff for review and feedback, so that they can independently develop a minimum of 15 items in prescribed areas. If interested, send a resume or curriculum vitae to rwarias@aicpa.org
