Financial Accounting and IFRS Route Map
Each client’s financial accounting and IFRS training requirements will naturally reflect their specific
business emphasis. Set out below are some generic suggestions for courses that DC Gardner
Training can provide throughout the financial reporting process:

   Practical Bookkeeping                                                          Fundamentals
                                                                                  of Accounting

                                         Financial Information

We regard these suggestions as a starting point for designing and tailoring a specific solution to meet
your exact requirements. As part of our commitment to excellence, we work hard to understand and
incorporate your own systems and controls as well as your specific business processes, in order to tailor
examples that are relevant and useful to your delegates.

Continuing Professional Development for Accountants
DC Gardner Training can provide complete CPD training solutions for your business. We can tailor
your programme to ensure it meets the requirements of any Institute whilst also making sure that
the content is relevant and practical to your specific business needs.

The benefits of a DC Gardner Training CPD programme
  We can offer flexibility of approach, for example we can run update days as well as specialist training
  on specific areas
  This is very cost effective way of providing training if you have a number of delegates who require
  CPD training
  We can monitor all delegates to ensure their CPD requirements are met and are verifiable and can
  provide evidence of attendance if required

Developing a CPD Programme
DC Gardner Training will work with you to provide a comprehensive range of training delivery solutions
for all your accounting and IFRS needs. To begin with we would meet with you to ensure that we
understand your business as well as all of your training requirements.
We can then tailor both the content and delivery style to your specific specifications, for example a
series of technical update courses, practical accounting workshops or Masterclasses in specific areas.
DC Gardner Training will collect and analyse feedback from your delegates, and where relevant, line
managers, to ensure that the programme has been a success.

           Continual development based on feedback received from the delegates

How might we approach applying IFRS to your business?
We would consult directly with you to find out exactly what skills you need, what is relevant to your
business, and how much experience the participants already have.
As a catalyst for ideas on course content, we might take the following basic course outline as a starting
point for discussion, and develop it to suit you:

Sample Course Outline: Applying IFRS in Four Days
The aim of this course is to provide participants with some practical guidelines to apply IFRS standards.

Day 1                                                   Day 3

  Introduction to IFRS                                   Leases
  Basic Accounting Principles under IFRS                 Provisions
  Formats of Financial Statements under IFRS             Employee Benefits
  Disclosure Standards, for example Related              Share-based Payments
  Parties, Segmental Analysis                            Financial Instruments

  Revenue Recognition and Construction                   Using IFRS for the First Time – IFRS 1
  Non-current Assets
  Intangible Assets
  Impairment of Assets

As we then tailor the course for you, we would develop the perfect solution for your training, always
bearing in mind the following:
Who?     We find the best faculty to suit your needs.
When? If you need to fit the training around busy schedules, no problem.
Where? You can have the training at your offices, or off-site.
How?     We agree on a methodology for the course that is appropriate for you.
What?    We can agree which specific areas of focus for your course.
