The American Institute of CPAs plans to offer training in International Financial Reporting Standards and the Extensible Business Reporting Language.

For the IFRS courses, the AICPA is teaming up with IASeminars, a company that specializes in IFRS training. IASeminars offers courses in Atlanta, Chicago, Denver, Houston, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Miami, New York and Seattle, as well as abroad.

The AICPA also plans to offer its own two-day seminar on XBRL in New York on July 22 and 23. The SEC proposed on May 30 to require all U.S. public companies to provide their financial statements, footnotes and schedules using interactive data starting with reporting periods ending on or after Dec. 15, 2008. The rule is phased-in over three years, but would affect the largest 500 companies by the end of the year.

The objective of this seminar, to be held in the AICPA boardroom in New York, is to provide a hands-on, interactive approach to understanding the new information standard that is about to impact U.S. publicly held companies. For more information, visit
