If you are a professional accountant or auditor, qualified in accordance with your national accounting standards, then this is the qualification for you. You do not need to have any experience or formal qualifications in accounting and auditing to apply for this certificate.
If you are already applying International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) at work and want formal recognition of your skills, you can apply to only take the online CertIFR assessment. If you do not need certification, but want extra knowledge in the field, you can choose the course only.
You can apply online at any time. When you have paid by credit card, you will get access to the online course and assessments for three months.

Registration & Assessment
Studying for another qualification as an ACCA member, can count towards your continuing professional development (CPD). The certificate is assessed by a one—hour exam with multiple-choice questions.
The pass mark is 50%
The course materials and assessment for the Certificate in International Financial Reporting are available together for £220 or separately at a cost of £125.
ACCA members receive a discount for the Certificate. The course materials and assessment are available together for £168 or separately at a cost of £92 each. The discount is applied automatically when members apply online with a valid credit or debit card and enter their ACCA membership number.
The fees cover two attempts to re-sit the assessment if you fail, but these must be taken within three months of accessing the online course. If you do not pass after three attempts, you will need to pay another registration fee to attempt the assessment again, giving you further three attempts to pass.
