CONTINUING EDUCATION FOR ASSOCIATION OF CHARTERED CERTIFIED ACCOUNTANTS (ACCA)

The ACCA Qualification gives students the most up-to-date skills they need to become finance professionals. But it gives you a much deeper and more rounded approach than the purely technical one. Threaded through the whole journey are the ethics and values students need to make a difference. CPD is a vital part of the membership. It ensures that professionals maintain and enhance the knowledge and skills needed to deliver a professional service to customers, clients, and the community.

The Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) offers different routes, which route you follow each year will determine the CPD requirement.

  1. Unit Route: If you plan and organize your own CPD, this is the route for you. You’ll complete a total of 40 relevant units of CPD each year, comprising at least 21 verifiable units and up to 19 non-verifiable units.
  2. Unit route: part-time or semi-retired: If you’re employed for 770 hours or less during a CPD year, which works out at 17.5 hours per week, you may be eligible to follow this part-time or semi-retired route. This might also apply to you if you’re only active in the workplace at certain times of the year.
  3. ACCA-approved Employer route: Some employers provide excellent learning and development programmes of their own. If you work for an employer who holds Approved Employer professional development approval then you can follow their employee development programmed to complete your CPD. 
  4. IFAC body route: If you’re also a member of another professional accountancy body, you’ll maybe have a choice of CPD programs. You can follow theirs, as long as:
    • you’re a full member of the other professional accountancy body; 
    • they’re a member of IFAC; and 
    • Their CPD policy complies with IFAC's International Education Standard (IES 7).

If the answer is 'yes' to all three, you can follow the IFAC body route. It is important that you still submit your annual CPD declaration, confirming that you’ve followed this route.
