As an accountant and a member of ACCA,’s CEO, Diarmuid O’Donovan, views the introduction of mandatory CPD/CPE by professional bodies associated with IFAC (including ACCA, ICAEW, ICAI, AICPA, ICAS and CIMA) as a system, formalizing the recording and reporting of learning activities, in which most conscientious accountants where already engaged.

With the flexibility of completing courses online, combined with typical course durations of one to three hour per e-Learning CPD/CPE course, provides an excellent option for any accountant with a busy life who is unable to locate appropriate courses at the time or location that suits them.

O’Donovan’s concept for came by combining a number of his personal interests including: the internet, multimedia, learning and accountancy.

“Since I first saw a computer with a color monitor, twenty something years ago, I realized how IT could be used for training in general and in the training of accountants in particular. I was a student accountant at the time; but, the technology was just not widely enough available and the development times were just too long to build a sustainable business model. It’s amusing to think that now, more than twenty years later, is up and running and the courses offered are focused at professionally trained accountants. I get a great sense of achievement every day I work on”

Future plans for include broadening the range of courses provided, engaging with new subject matter experts, and developing more innovative ways of delivering CPD/CPE.
