Programme schedule and assessment

When? New dates coming soon

We will continue to monitor the situation and await further official public health guidance and advice and act accordingly. For the moment, we hope to reschedule this course as soon as possible, and we will update our website as soon as the new dates are confirmed. Naturally, this will depend on factors beyond our control, such as speaker availability and the overall situation.

Programme delivery

For classroom learning, sessions will take place in Chartered Accountants House, 47-49 Pearse Street, Dublin 2. There will be some extra study required outside of class time.

During the programme, you will complete a number of pieces of assessment including learning logs in which you will be asked to show how your thought process has developed and how your approach will change as a result of what you have learned. Learning logs are marked on a pass/fail basis. You will also complete a final home assignment which will lead to a presentation to the examiners. 


Assessment will include four learning logs throughout the programme, an assignment to complete at home and a final presentation.
