Training Overview/Introduction:   

To further support Chartered Accountants of Singapore (CA Singapore) in their professional development, ISCA has signed a Memorandum of Agreement (MoA) with the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA) to establish the ISCA-CIMA pathway on 17 March 2015. 

The ISCA-CIMA pathway scheme provides ISCA members an opportunity to become CIMA members and be conferred the Chartered Global Management Accountant (CGMA) designation. The globally recognised CGMA designation is a prestigious title jointly awarded by CIMA and the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA). 

For CA Singapore who attend the CGMA Strategic Leaders course, those tuition hours (or workshop hours) and examination can be recognized as CPE hours.
