AICPA Announces Opening of Academy Program.
Three AICPA Academies have been opened for 2001. Upon completion of this rigorous and extended educational process (group study or self-study), AICPA members can earn a "Fellow" certificate, a nationally recognized educational status. For each one of the three new Academy programs, the curriculum provides intense educational experiences designed for proficiency. The courses are interlinked and build upon each other to form a structured curriculum.
Participants must take 64 hours of Academy curriculum to build functional expertise and 16 hours of courses to build personal attributes and leadership qualities. Those who enroll in one of the Academy programs will also be able to network with CPAs of similar interests and receive valuable online benefits. An enrollee has three years to complete the required curriculum.
You can become a Fellow in one of the following:
* AICPA Academy of Corporate Tax Management
* AICPA Academy of Exempt Organizations
* AICPA Academy of Tax Advisers for Small Business
Among the many benefits, an enrollee of an Academy has access to resources, support and tools and obtains prestigious "Fellow" status. Participants get a certificate that shows employers and/or clients that they have met the rigorous challenge of the AICPA Academy. There also are ongoing networking opportunities and training to keep current.
To enroll in an Academy, a CPA must be a member in good standing with the AICPA and the state society of residence, as well as pay an enrollment fee and subsequent annual fees. Visit the AICPA Web site at www.aicpa.org or call 888/777-7077 and ask to speak with an AICPA Academy representative.
