- The courses in the IFRS Certificate program will be classified as Accounting for purposes of granting CPE credits. As with other AICPA courses that are approved for other certifications, we fully expect the IFRS Certificate courses will satisfy those requirements. To be certain, please check with the organization that issues your CMA, CIA or other certifications.
- This varies from individual to individual and is completely dependent upon the time the participant allocates to completing the coursework. We currently plan that a commitment of approximately 41.5 hours typically will be required for most individuals to successfully complete the program.
- Neither the IFRS Certificate nor the IFRS Award is a professional credential or license. It is evidence of successful completion of a required course curriculum as of a point in time. As a result, it has no period for which it is deemed “active” or in-force.
