Dear Members,

ICAI has been actively engaged in the professional development of its Members through various initiatives. The latest is ICAI and M/s C&K Management Ltd. signing an MOU on 17th March 2011. Under the agreement, Members and students of the Institute as well as other financial and accounting professionals will be equipped with the essential knowledge in International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS). The delivery will be online through highly convenient e-learning modules.

As we all know, the Indian Accounting Standards will converge with the IFRS in a phased manner. This may require substantial policy changes in the way organisations value their assets and recognise the revenue, among others. Certain principles in the IFRS may also impact the cost records. Given the circumstances, it is imperative that Cost Accounting professionals understand and assimilate IFRS. This will help them analyse any impact on cost records and enable them to take appropriate action. For this, however, Members need to be equipped with both the theoretical and practical knowledge/application, including the intricacies of the various International Financial Reporting Standards.

Keeping this in mind, ICAI is offering a 100+ hours e-Learning Course on IFRS that would cater to the needs of its Members across the country. As you aware, e-Learning offers the advantage of learning at one’s own pace, time and place.

Course Objective
The Ministry of Corporate Affairs (MCA) has given a Road Map for convergence of the Indian Accounting Standards with the International Financial Reporting Standards. The new converged standards have been published and the convergence date is awaited. Hence, the ICAI strongly feels that its members need to be trained in IFRS. For this purpose ICAI offers a 100 + hours e learning course on IFRS which can conveniently reach all its Members across India.

The objective of this course is to equip Members and students of the Institute as well as other financial and accounting professionals with the essential knowledge in the International Financial Reporting Standards. On successful completion of the course, the learners will acquire a basic understanding of the various IFRS/IAS standards. It is also intended to educate the members about the practical application of the IFRS standards.

Course Structure
Online Learning Model
