IFRS CERTIFICATION COURSE
The Institute of Certified Public Accountants of Kenya (ICPAK or the Institute) was established by the Accountants Act Cap 573 laws of Kenya and amended by the Accountants Act no 15 of 2008, with the primary mandate to register, regulate and develop the accountancy profession in Kenya. In fulfillment of its mandate to develop accountants, the Institute holds Continuous Development Programs geared towards promotion of the standards of professional competence for its members.
The need for high-quality and reliable financial reports for all sectors of the economy cannot be over-emphasized and the Institute aims to improve the quality of general-purpose financial reporting by entities to ensure that there is better informed assessment of resource allocation and utilization decisions as well as considering the emerging developments in reporting, thereby enhancing accuracy, transparency, and accountability.
It is against this backdrop that ICPAK launches its second online certification program on International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS). This online certification is a comprehensive program which is developed to provide a grounding in IFRS and help you to distinguish yourself as a professional who is proficient as it brings you up to speed with the current developments and teaches you how to understand, apply, and explain fundamental concepts and principles of IFRS across a broad range of accounting standards.
In addition to promoting standards of professional competence, the online IFRS certification is also meant to keep members engaged and be up to date with IFRS in a convenient way.
This certificate program will cover:
- A broad overview of key IFRS definitions and concepts
- The fundamental principles of IFRS across a range of accounting topics
- The accounting impact of the latest standards and amendments issued by the IASB
