Association of International Certified Professional Accountants launches learning resources on emerging technologies

The Association of International Certified Professional Accountants (the Association) has launched a line of learning resources which are linked to the use of technology in the future of finance and accounting.

The learning materials, which are collectively called Go Beyond+ Disruption, cover topics such as human intelligence, data analytics, cybersecurity, blockchain and robotic process automation.

Education through Go Beyond+ Disruption will be delivered through podcasts, Facebook Live, YouTube videos, blog posts and nano learning, as well as more traditional methods such as online self-study, webcasts and conferences.

Accounting and finance professionals can earn certificates and digital badges in specific areas covered by the resources.

The Associations' executive vice president of engagement and learning innovation Clar Rosso said: “Automation and other disruptive trends in the accounting profession will require CPAs and Chartered Global Management Accountants (CGMAs) to learn, unlearn and relearn as they progress through their careers.

“To thrive, you’ll need to continuously adapt your skillset and evolve your competencies. Our learning resources and products can help accounting and finance professionals understand how to effectively use emerging technologies to drive value and take advantage of new business opportunities.”

Human intelligence materials are already available through the online American Institute of CPAs' and CGMA stores. Data analytics and blockchain resources will be available over the next few months and other categories will be added at a later date.
