IFRS seminar: Online learning and assessment programme – 33 CPD hours – Jun 2015


Applied knowledge of IFRS is a critical skill for the South African economy. Preparers of financial statements should have their competency in IFRS accredited by completing an internationally-recognised IFRS learning and assessment programme – which will improve your knowledge and practical understanding of IFRS.

The CertIFR© learning and assessment programme is designed for anyone who is involved with the preparation and use of financial statements, or who simply needs to develop or refresh their knowledge of IFRS, including:

  • accountants and finance staff,
  • analysts,
  • investors and portfolio managers,
