Both members and non-members can enrol on the programme which is available worldwide. It focuses on broad knowledge and understanding of all international standards coming into effect in 2005.

Further study is also possible to obtain a diploma qualification in IFRS, which will be launched later this year.

Brian Chiplin, ICAEW director of education and training, said: ‘IFRS will be a dominant part of the business landscape from January 2005. The Institute has developed a qualification relevant to our members and the wider business community to help prepare for the consistent introduction of these standards.

‘Along with technical excellence, flexibility has been key in developing the programme. We will be offering computer-based assessments and a choice of study materials to meet the different needs of individual users.’
