Hi, my name is Shawn Jones, adjunct professor here at Argosy University. Today, our topic of discussion is becoming a certified chartered accountant. This process is best understood and known by being able to go to the ACCA's website, which is ACCAglobal.org. At that website, you can learn and understand the steps for becoming a certified chartered accountant. Looking at that information, though, the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants is the largest global professional accountancy body with over 300,000 members. Its headquarters are in London. Basically, to be able to become an accountant on the world stage, being able to become a member of this organization put you on the right path to do so. The steps for doing so: there are three qualifications. A professional qualification entitling members to the designation of chartered certified accountants, a technician qualification, and a diploma for managers who are not accountants but who need to acquire operational and strategic financial skills. Basically, there are three papers that you need to be able to write, along with being able to go through the program that they've established for you to do.
