It’s a profession that’s thousands of years old but accountants can hardly rest on their laurels. They must commit to ongoing professional development in order to maintain their highly-regarded designations and to stay abreast of a “tsunami” of changes that include changes in tax laws, cyber security and artificial intelligence.
“In today’s day and age, you also have to respect the fact that as you’re recruiting and trying to encourage people to become professional accountants, you need to offer flexibility,” says Tashia Batstone, Chartered Professional Accountants (CPA) Canada’s senior vice-president of external relations and business development.
With every CPA required to fulfill a mandatory continuing education requirement of 120 hours every three years – which is based on an international standard – flexibility is about offering a variety of delivery methods, delivery providers and also a wide range of courses that meet the needs of members, whether they’re generalists or work in specialities such as management, tax or audit.
