A board within the International Federation of Accountants is seeking proposals for a research project that will examine how other industries measure the continuing education efforts of professionals.

The work will likely lead to the issuance of an education paper from the International Accounting Education Standards Board in 2008.

 International Education Standard No. 7, “Continuing Professional Development: A Program of Lifelong Learning and Continuing Development of Professional Competence,” went into effect on Jan. 1, 2006 and outlines the obligations that IFAC member bodies have to require continuing education of all professional accountants.

The full request for proposal, “ Approaches to Continuing Professional Development.
Measurement,”  is available under the board’s home page off IFAC's Web site, www.ifac.org. The deadline for submission is Jan. 12, 2007.
