Why ICAN Members Must Embrace MCPE

The Institute introduced the Mandatory Continuing Professional Education (MCPE) to facilitate regular professional development of chartered accountants in compliance with international best practice.

The objectives of MCPE programmes include to develop and maintain the professional competence necessary for professional accountants to perform their roles, and to meet the needs of clients, employers, and other stakeholders.

It is also meant to assist members of the profession to adapt to the evolution of new techniques, changing responsibilities and economic conditions globally. The scheme also demonstrates the Institute’s social responsiveness by encouraging members of the accounting profession to have adequate current technical knowledge and skill in the drive towards maintaining professional excellence in the public interest while providing members with networking opportunities.
