CPA lança curso/certificação em IFRS

Já é de conhecimento de todos os esforços para a convergência entre o USGAAP e as IFRS. A AICPA, a associação dos contadores públicos americana, lançou recentemente um curso / certificação em IFRS a fim de promover o conhecimento das normas internacionais, chamado IFRS Certificate Program.
Este curso compreende 25 módulos de estudo em ambiente on line e ao final destes o aluno (CPA) recebe o certificado que equivale a 42 horas de estudos nos requisitos de educação continuada dos contadores públicos estadounidenses. Quem não é CPA também pode prestar (inclusive, nós, brasileiros).
Notícia ruim: PREÇO. O curso para uma CPA registrado é de US$ 1.150,00 e para um não CPA de US$ 1.695,00.
