The six month course will culminate in an examination in June 2013 and successful candidates will be awarded the diploma by the Association of Certified Chartered Accountants (DipIFR). The diploma will enable candidates to cross boundaries in an increasingly important field of accountancy. It is designed to develop knowledge of international standards by providing an understanding of the concepts and principles which underpin them, and of their application in the international marketplace.
The programme will run in our Cork city-centre location on Friday afternoons from 2pm - 5pm or as a separate course on Saturdays from 10am - 5pm. The lecture team will be led by Christy Kearney who is an award winning lecturer with over 25 years experience in delivering quality lectures to professional accountancy students of ICAI, ACCA, CIMA and CPA examinations.
