Why do this course?
This course is designed for accounting and financial professionals who work for any companies required to comply with US GAAP.
Current statistics, from the Central Statistics Office show that Ireland’s trade with the United States amounts to 23 percent of exports and 12 percent of imports. Many Irish Accountants rely on this trade for current and future employment.
At the moment there is a shortage of Accountants with knowledge of US GAAP in Ireland and it has been identified as a barrier to employment by many CPA members who find it listed as a requirement in job descriptions. In designing this programme, CPA Ireland drew on the experience of Dr Wayne Bartlett, an experienced public financial management specialist with experience of working in over thirty countries.
The course will enable participants to demonstrate a comprehensive knowledge and understanding of US GAAP in order to competently apply them.
How is the course structured?
The course is delivered through a series of recorded lectures. There will also be live webinars scheduled prior to assignment dates where you can interact directly with the lecturer. This online option allows you to purchase the diploma today and complete it at a time and place that suits you.
Participants will gain 40 hours of structured CPD upon successful completion of the assignment, or 36 hours without completing the assignment. In order for CPD hours to be awarded, participants must complete a series of short questions at the end of each session.
