New site offers CGMA designation holders flexible access to professional learning and development


The AICPA and CIMA launched the AICPA | CIMA Competency and Learning website to help equip Chartered Global Management Accountant (CGMA) designation holders with the competencies required to maintain and improve their employability in today’s business environment.

The site, located at competency.aicpa.org, is based on the CGMA Competency Framework, which was created in consultation with employers across the world to define the most needed technical, business, people, and leadership skills.

It features more than 1,500 articles, publications, videos, webcasts, and self-study courses to support lifelong learning for CGMA designation holders, who can also use the site’s self-assessment tool to identify gaps in their learning and develop their competence from foundational levels to expert.

Flexible access to learning resources allows users to discover and develop new competencies when, where, and how they want. CGMA designation holders can also track and report progress toward their personal, professional, and regulatory goals.
