Foundational Financial Accounting Certificate (FFAC™)

As companies strive harder to enhance bottom-line profitability, it becomes more crucial for key employees to have a basic understanding of accounting and financial terms and concepts. Often, nonaccounting and financial professionals need accounting and financial information to make important business decisions, making it vital that they know how to use and understand the common language of accounting and finance.


The FFAC workshops focus on essential accounting and finance concepts to assist candidates, employees, and executives from nonaccounting and finance backgrounds to be better equipped to make informed management decisions.



Without any prerequisites, the FFAC™ workshops provide a comprehensive overview of accounting and finance terminologies, enabling participants to analyze and report on financial activities and apply the fundamentals of accounting by establishing a foundation of knowledge of  the accounting and finance process. The live workshops cover accounting cycles, financial statements, revenue recognition, cash flow preparations, IFRS, and much more.

After completing the workshops, participants are required to sit for a short exam to complete the assessment and be granted a certificate from IMA.
