Bespoke Training Courses

We are pleased to be able to design and develop bespoke courses to satisfy internal training needs of organisations:

  • for qualified finance staff to meet Continuing Professional Development (CPD) requirements
  • for non-qualified staff to meet a range of finance and business training objectives


Continued professional development (CPD) is an integral and essential part of the Professional Accountants career. In fact, many of the professional institutes have now made it obligatory for their members and mandate them to commit, and document, their CPD activities. But CPD is more than a ‘tick-box exercise’ – it’s about keeping abreast of technical developments within accountancy and finance, networking with peers and colleagues, developing your career, and adding value to your organisation and your clients. For accountants to remain technically competent, they are expected to engage in a set amount of CPD training per annum across a range of key and topical skills. At iCount we are committed to providing quality and targeted CPD courses that meet your needs.

Recent feedback from our clients:

“I think today’s session went very well and I have received a lot of positive feedback from members of the group which is very satisfying.  I think special thanks are due to Louise for the preparation she put into the course material and the delivery.  I think the content and the level of complexity was just about right for the wide mix of staff in the group and Louise retained everyone’s attention right through to the end of the session.” Ian, Finance Department CPD Group

“We were very pleased with the VAT course content and material provided. Also, the standard of delivery from Darren was exceptional. Thank you.” Kathryn, PHD Management Accountant

“My company used iCount Training for an IFRS refresher and update course. Based in-house at our offices, the presenters gave a full and comprehensive review of the most recent changes in the financial reporting environment and updated the team on some of the key standards applicable to our industry. Both the presenters were excellent and we were particularly impressed with how the material had been tailored to incorporate our business activities. We had asked iCount to specifically cover revenue recognition, which Dave was happy to accommodate, and it has led to much more clarity and consistency in our financial reporting. I would certainly recommend iCount Training for any type of Professional Development training.” Peter, Assistant Management Accountant
