Essentials - A Focus on IFRS 17 Insurance Contract Accounting (Virtual Classroom)

This online IFRS 17 training is being delivered live in a single 4 hour session which runs from 13:00 – 17:00 London (UK).

This course is aimed not only at preparers and users of accounts but also IFRS 17 implementation team members and will provide an initial working knowledge of how the standard works.
