What is involved in the process?

When assessing an application to join the scheme we are seeking to confirm that the organisation provides sufficient support and the range of opportunities that allow our members to meet their CPD targets. The two primary elements are that they prepare an annual development plan and undertake a range of relevant training and development activities.

Evidence will be sought to support the application during the onsite review (see below), a list of examples of supporting evidence is covered in the application form.

The process

The route to accreditation is a three step process:

  1. Application - completion of the application form
  2. On-site review - visit by the Chartered Accountants Ireland team to review application and processes
  3. Accreditation - confirmation and award of accreditation.

NOTE: There is a fee payable upon successful application and thereafter annually in order to retain the accreditation.
