Irish institute to offer IFRS diploma
To prepare accountants in Ireland for the implementation of international financial reporting standards next year, the Irish institute is offering a new diploma to ensure they are fully conversant.
The Institute of Chartered Accountants in Ireland announced the launch of the new diploma in IFRS in conjunction with education specialists BPP Ireland.
Launching the Diploma, Ronan O’Loughlin, ICAI director of education and training, said: ‘ICAI has already been training our members for the introduction of IFRS through our continuing professional development programme and indeed the demand for courses here led us to believe that some members would be interested in a specialist qualification in this important area.’
The course is set to run over ten weeks on a Friday and Saturday and will commence on May 28.
