PwC, ICAEW launch on­line ac­count­ing cer­tifi­cate course

The Star (Kenya) - - News Business -

MERCY GAKII/ The In­sti­tute of Char­tered Ac­coun­tants in Eng­land and Wales and pro­fes­sional ser­vices firm Price­wa­ter­house Coop­ers have launched an on­line cer­tifi­cate course to boost ac­count­ing prac­tices in Kenya. The ICAEW In­ter­na­tional Pub­lic Sec­tor Ac­count­ing Stan­dards cer­ti­fi­ca­tion is aimed at pro­vid­ing high qual­ity, flex­i­ble and ac­ces­si­ble cer­ti­fied learn­ing to pro­fes­sion­als in the pub­lic sec­tor. With no en­try re­quire­ments, the pro­gramme is ex­pected to com­ple­ment ex­ist­ing skills among pub­lic sec­tor ac­coun­tants, and to help man­age fi­nances more ef­fi­ciently, ICAEW di­rec­tor Ross Camp­bell said in a state­ment. “With IPSAS comes uni­for­mity in re­port­ing, en­abling com­pa­ra­bil­ity across entities and bet­ter in­ter­pre­ta­tion of fi­nan­cial in­for­ma­tion. This is sig­nif­i­cant when it comes to more in­formed as­sess­ments of the re­source al­lo­ca­tion de­ci­sions un­der­taken by gov­ern­ments,” said Stephen Ochieng, a part­ner at PWC.
