Certified IFRS Analyst TM
The Certified IFRS Analyst TM course provides the foundational principles and conceptual framework, for International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS). The objective of the course is to give a condensed version of the 35+ accounting standards that have been developed over a number of years. These standards are used by organiztions and countries to properly organize their financial information into accounting records and summarize it into financial statements as well as disclose certain supporting information. The core idea of using IFRS is that anyone reading the financial statements of multiple companies has a reasonable bases for comparison, since all companies using IFRS have created their financial statements using the same set of rules (Bragg, 2017). Content for this course is organized into the following topic areas:
