About the course

Financial Accounting for non-Accountants is a course designed to simplify and bring to life an area often seen as a dull subject. The aim here is to get the information across in a stimulating and entertaining manner, without losing any of the required rigour. The consistent popularity of the course over the years shows how effective this approach has been. The lecturers involved have a wealth of business experience to draw on and a particularly attractive feature is the way in which they use this experience to illustrate and emphasise the subject matter.

Financial Accounting for Non-Accountants explores the accounting function and its relationship with other business activities. It examines the nature and scope of financial accounting, accounting conventions and standards and the interpretation and analysis of company accounts. It is highly interactive and participation by course delegates is actively encouraged. Delivery involves the use of a comprehensive specially written manual, lectures, practical exercises, case study material and videos.

FAFNA is part (2 days) of the 4.5 day Success in Financial Management course.
