ICPAS launches new auditor certificate

The Institute of Certified Public Accountants of Singapore (ICPAS) has launched a life-long learning certificate aimed at improving auditors’ technical skills and expertise.

ICPAS said the new certificate, Professional Certificate in Audit Skills, is in line with the Singapore government’s vision to develop Singapore into a global accountancy hub by 2020.

The certificate will focus on audit planning, audit testing, audit completion and audit reporting.

In support of ICPAS’s programme ‘Singapore’s Employment and Employability Institute’ will offer subsidies aimed at encouraging auditors to upgrade their skills, especially for those working in small and medium-sized practices.

ICPAS’s head of continuing professional education John Lim said the role of an auditor has evolved rapidly in recent years.

“Corporations are responding to this by demanding higher audit competencies. ICPAS’ Professional Certificate in Audit Skills, designed in accordance with global auditing standards and industry needs, will not only sharpen the audit expertise of the participants but also improve their employability,” he said.
