We knew it. Lucky for you, there will be a brand spanking new certificate come May of 2010:
Because members will need to be able to demonstrate a competency in IFRS, the AICPA plans to launch in May 2010 an IFRS Certificate of Accomplishment for CPAs, which will require 72 hours of content to complete.
