The series requirements for a Certificate in Financial Reporting & Analysis consists of 9 separate video-based courses, worth 24 CPE credits and designed to show you how financial statements can be used to make better business decisions through thoughtful evaluation of a firm’s financial performance and condition as well as highlighting the factors that drive business success. The course coverage begins with an introduction to financial reporting and the economic environment in which financial statements are prepared and used. Course 2 provides a review of the mechanics underlying the preparation of the statements, and then the heart of the series, How to Read and Analyze Financial Statements, covers the statements in detail and goes on to develop a financial model that links the financial statements to business performance. Together, these 3 courses provide the foundation and perspective for the remaining courses, which drill deeper into the concept of net present value, and offer greater detail of the asset, liability, and equity accounts. Also included is a course on “Ethics and Earnings Management.” The entire series relies heavily on real-world companies and examples. After completing this series, you will not only be able to better prepare financial statements, but you will also have mastered the ability to use them as a tool to make better business decisions.
