IFRS Certificate Program Available

To help CPAs understand and use IFRS, meet marketplace demands and enjoy enhanced career opportunities, the AICPA has launched an IFRS Certificate Program. The certificate program features a comprehensive, integrated curriculum of 25 online self-study courses that explore all aspects of IFRS. In addition, the program entitles enrollees to benefits, including a free subscription to eIFRS, specially prepared podcasts, and discounts on IFRS publications and webcasts. Those who complete the program receive a Certificate of Educational Achievement, which enables CPAs to demonstrate their IFRS knowledge and expertise. Non-CPAs who go through the program would receive an Award of Educational Achievement. For more information, visit IFRS.com and read FAQs at ifrs.com/certificate/FAQs.html.
