IFRS e-learnings for banks

Relevant IFRS themes. Anytime, anywhere.

A good understanding of International Financial Reporting Standards (“IFRS”) is crucial to the financial reporting process of IFRS reporters. Banks in particular have to cope with specific and complex IFRS themes. PwC has developed a comprehensive IFRS e-learning program tailored for banks in order to meet the banking industry’s need.

PwC’s unique IFRS e-learning program aims to create a solid IFRS understanding, focusing on bank specific topics. Accordingly, the IFRS e-learning program covers IFRS fundamentals with a strong focus on IFRS 9 ‘Financial Instruments’, effective as of January 1, 2018, and other banking relevant IFRSs. The overview below sets out the full program as of financial year 2018/2019. Please note that this program may be amended to reflect emerging, bank relevant, topics.

Why IFRS e-learnings for banks?

Banks have expressed a need to increase the knowledge of their global employees with respect to IFRS developments. Together with our clients, we identified relevant topics and the preferred learning mechanism: e-learning. This will allow banks to update their (global) workforce on IFRS developments that are relevant to their industry, at relatively low costs. Anytime, anywhere.

IFRS e-learning modules may also be combined with classroom sessions in a blended learning model. Participants take the IFRS e-learning modules beforehand, allowing more time for covering practical issues during the classroom session.

Subject Matter Education

The IFRS subject matter experts within our Capital Markets and Accounting Advisory Services group (“CMAAS”) have designed the IFRS e-learning modules together with learning experts. In designing the IFRS e-learning modules, CMAAS focused on the relevance and impact of IFRS, in theory and in practice, specifically for banks.

Permanent Education

PwC’s IFRS e-learning program meets the requirements for Permanent Education of The Netherlands Institute of Chartered Accountants (“NBA”). For most IFRS e-learning modules, participants receive one PE hour each. We are happy to discuss whether our IFRS e-learning modules meet country specific permanent education requirements.
