    Add another notch to the belt: IFRS Certificate Program
    The AICPA has long taken a leadership role in promoting the goal of one set of high-quality globally accepted accounting standards among public companies worldwide and readying U.S. CPAs for the use of IFRS. To help CPAs understand and apply IFRS, meet marketplace demands and enjoy enhanced career opportunities, the AICPA has launched the IFRS Certificate Program. Through the program, the AICPA's most ambitious educational resource on IFRS to date, a Certificate of Educational Achievement will be given for completion of a comprehensive and rigorous curriculum of online self-study courses that offer a broad foundation in IFRS. This marker of competence in implementing IFRS enables CPAs to demonstrate their knowledge of IFRS to current and potential employers and clients in the expanding and increasingly open global marketplace.
