The AICPA-CIMA Competency and Learning website’s offerings have been increased to include learning resources and competency-development tools that not only support management accounting, but all major practice areas for accountants. When the site was launched in 2015, it provided the framework for the Chartered Global Management Accountant designation holders. The AICPA explains that it was designed “to allow users to take a more customized approach to learning and development throughout their career.” Over time the site has covered more topics. It includes self-assessment tools, as well as videos, articles, publications, webcasts and on-line courses.

Clar Rosso, AICPA vice president of member learning and competency, explained: “This is now truly a one-stop destination for public accountants, management accountants and finance professionals looking to take control of their careers and pursue new skills and expertise. It’s a source of guidance that’s available anytime, anywhere, whether you’re working on a laptop or a mobile device, and fits the needs of today’s more self-directed and on-the-go professionals.”

NASBA’s CPE Committee is studying developments in continuing professional education. A report will be given by CPE Committee Chair Maria E. Caldwell (FL) at the Annual Meeting in October.
