Due to the continued success of this course, CPA Ireland is excited to once again run our Diploma in Forensic Accounting, commencing in September 2021.
This Diploma provides a comprehensive understanding of the core Forensic Accounting skills. This course will suit CPAs and other qualified accountants working in both industry and practice, particularly in the SME sector.
This course is delivered over 5 full-day sessions (9:15am - 4.30pm) between September 2021 and February 2022.
