ACCA - The global body for professional accountants

Looking to develop your people and balance your training budget? ACCA training and support provides a wealth of continuing professional development (CPD) resources for our members, all of which represent excellent value for money and many are free of charge. Resources range from access to our comprehensive online Knowledge Library to online CPD articles from Accounting and Business magazine.

Complying with CPD requirements doesn’t mean that your ACCA members have to spend valuable time away from the office on traditional-style training courses. We recognise work-based learning activities such as mentoring, coaching and networking as contributing towards CPD. But when you do need expert help to develop your people, you can visit our online CPD provider database to locate quality providers in your area.

Further study 

Further relevant study is also a recognised as contributing to CPD. We offer specialised certificates and diplomas such as the Certificate in International Financial Reporting, the Diploma in International Financial Reporting and the Certificate in International Auditing, which members may wish to take up to develop their skills and knowledge further.

We realise that often our members’ careers lead them beyond the area of finance and accounting. To reflect this, we have forged a number of partnerships with other professional bodies and academic institutions to offer qualifications ranging from a global MBA to an MA in Leadership Studies and an MSc in Public Policy and Management.
