Continuing Professional Development (CPD)
CPD training programmes are organised to ensure that accountants' skills are being upgraded and developed as a life-long learning process. These programmes ensure that Chartered Certified Accountants in Malaysia are up-to-date with the latest relevant professional and personal skills ACCA has developed the Professional Development Manual to help members plan their CPD effectively and to apply their learning outcomes to their practical working environment.
Practical Experience Requirement (PER)
Becoming an ACCA-qualified accountant does not just involve passing your exams and completing an ethics module, you also need to complete practical experience. It helps you to demonstrate to potential employers that you can apply your knowledge to the workplace and have practical skills. You can gain your practical experience before, during or after you complete your exams, but at the same time is preferable.
