what are IFRS online COURSE OBJECTIVES provided by ACCA?
- to help you understand how International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) are used around the world
- to explain how the International Financial Reporting Standards Foundation (IFRSF) / International Accounting Standards Board (IASB) work and how these are being changed
- to examine the fundamental requirements of IFRS on a standard-by-standard basis
- to provide guidance on how to use IFRS in practice.
Our e-learning course is an introduction to International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS). Nationally qualified accountants and auditors can now update their skills to meet the challenges involved in adopting and implementing IFRS in their workplace. An educational or vocational background in financial reporting is recommended before starting the Cert IFR.
This course also benefits ACCA members who gained their qualification prior to the introduction of IFRS. For ACCA members whose qualifications are already based on IFRS, the Cert IFR is an opportunity to update their IFRS knowledge for recent IASB publications.
Download the document in the related documents box at the bottom of this page to find two example CertIFR assessment questions. These will help you to judge whether this certificate is appropriate for your professional needs.
The online course includes all the study materials you will need, although students will benefit from having a copy of the International Accounting Standards Board’s (IASB) International Accounting Standards book, which you can order from the IASB website in the Related links list on the left-hand side of the page.
