Rwanda launches accounting qualification

The Institute of Certified Public Accountants of Rwanda (ICPAR) has launched its own accounting professional course.

ICAPR said its Certified Public Accountants of Rwanda (CPA-R) and the Certified Accounting Technicians of Rwanda (CAT-R) qualification are benchmarked against international standards and put an end to local accountants and auditors having to qualify abroad.

According to media reports on the continent, Rwanda’s accounting professionals previously had to obtain their license in Kenya or Uganda, which has led to a shortage of auditors in the country.

ICPAR is said to currently have 214 registered professional accountants in the country, of which only 55 are Rwandan.
