The global body for professional accountants

Looking to develop your people and balance your training budget? ACCA provides a wealth of continuing professional development (CPD) resources, all of which represent excellent value for money (in fact, many are free of charge).

Resources range from access to our comprehensive CPD resources finder to online CPD articles from Accounting and Business magazine

What's more, complying with CPD requirements doesn’t mean your ACCA members have to spend valuable time away from the office on traditional training courses. We recognise work-based learning activities such as mentoring, coaching and networking as contributing towards CPD.

Further study 

Further relevant study also contributes to CPD. We offer specialised certificates and diplomas which enable members to develop their skills and knowledge further. These include:

Certificate in International Financial Reporting

Diploma in International Financial Reporting

Certificate in International Auditing

Partner qualifications

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 professional bodies and academic institutions to offer qualifications ranging from a global MBA to an MSc in Public Policy and Management. Read more about our partner qualifications

My development

My Development contains a wealth of resources such as online courses, articles, free learning,e-books and much more to help members meet their annual CPD requirements. It also contains guidance and support as to what CPD is, what type of learning counts as CPD and how to make the annual CPD declaration.

Supporting your sector

Our members work in a range of different sectors, roles and industries so we have developed the supporting your sector area of the website which highlights relevant resources and learning to support them through their professional careers.
