New international accounting standards qualification
17 May 2016
A new qualification in international accounting standards has been announced by CIPFA.
The institute’s head of Governments Faculty, Gillian Fawcett said CIPFA’s International Public Sector Accountancy Standards (IPSAS) qualification is designed to give public sector professionals the skills they will need to implement the standards successfully.
Students are now able to achieve two formal qualifications - CIPFA Certification IPSAS (Cert IPSAS) and CIPFA Diploma in IPSAS (Dip IPSAS). The Cert IPSAS provides foundational knowledge of IPSAS. It also provides the basis to progress to the DIP IPSAS, which applies the standards to accounting practices within public sector organisations.
The new qualification replaces a previous IPSAS certificate, offering greater depth of professional knowledge and up-to-date approaches.
