As described in our earlier blog “The AICPA Introduces the Nonprofit Membership Section,” the AICPA has broadened their membership requirements for non-CPA associates and added a not-for-profit (NFP) section which allows non-CPAs to join the AIPCA and have access to numerous NFP resources. In an effort to strengthen this new NFP section, the AICPA recently launched the NFP Certificate Program. The Certificate Program is an on-demand learning experience that covers the essentials of NFP financial responsibility. There are four main sections to the program as listed below:
- Introduction to Not-for-Profit Entities
- Accounting and Financial Reporting
- Tax Compliance
- Governance and Assurance
The Certificate Program will benefit CPAs who perform NFP engagements, as well staff and board members at NFPs who wish to improve their NFP financial expertise. There are no prerequisites to complete this program, and the course totals 40 hours of eligible CPE credit.
For more information about the program, please visit NFP Certificate Program.
I will post an update after personally completing the Certificate Program. Stay tuned!
