New learning tools helpclose the skills gap

July 2023

AICPA & CIMA have launched a new online learning platform to help accounting and finance professionals improve and update their skills, so they can take advantage of an accelerating digital business environment.

According to a 2021 World Economic Forum report, more than half of all employees worldwide will need to reskill or upskill by 2025. To address this need the new system boasts single-platform availability, enhanced navigation and other tools that foster emerging technology- driven skills. It will provide access to the world’s largest accounting association’s learning content, including its portfolio of webcasts, certificates, guides and other CPE courses as a one-stop shop.

Michael Grant, AICPA & CIMA senior director of Learning Innovation & Assessment, explained: “The re-imagining of our learning portfolio represented an opportunity for us to rethink, refresh and transform our approach.

“Our new system offers dynamic learning journeys, which will allow accounting and finance professionals to address the skills they need to remain relevant using consistently updated course material.”
