NEWS this month on the education front comes from HSI Limerick Business School who unveiled its launch of its range of ACCA courses for the new academic year. As a Gold Status ACCA Approved Learning Partner the objective of the School is to educate accounting professionals with a strong set of integrated skills, balanced with a clear understanding of the accounting,
financial and business environments vital to professional practice.
With sights set on upskilling and assisting in the further education of Limerick’s proud student base, the HSI School of Professional Accountancy offers a dynamic and professional teaching environment characterised by a lecturing team with outstanding experience and an educational setting that promotes and encourages the highest levels of academic endeavour. The ACCA lecturers’ academic strength and professional experience ensures the ongoing relevance of the course content delivered. The success of HSI College’s ACCA courses is based on the quality and professionalism of our lecturing team and facilities.
The Accountancy courses currently commencing in February 2009 include the ACCA Qualification and the ACCA Certified Accounting Technician. The ACCA Qualification is highly regarded throughout the world and enables individuals to become a Chartered Certified Accountant. This qualification will deliver professional accountants who are capable of building successful careers across all sectors, from practising in accountancy firms to the corporate, financial services and public sectors.
The Certified Accounting Technician (CAT) programme leads to a vocational qualification based on national standards of competence which allows graduates to competently support the work of professional accountants, as well as business managers in all aspects of the financial sector. The role can be broadened to include staff supervision, budgeting, debt control and audit assurance.
Computer Based Examinations (CBE) are now available for ACCA F1, F2 & F3 and ACCA CAT Papers 1, 2, 3 & 4 as an alternative to the paper based examinations.
HSI Limerick Business School is an accredited CBEs centre that offers CBEs on a monthly basis throughout the year.
