Short Course in
ACCOUNTING FOR NON-ACCOUNTANTS

by Dante Herras

At a time that accounting scandals and controversies are hitting business headlines and shaking financial markets, the Philippine Institute of Certified Public Accountants (Dubai Chapter) is reaching out to the Filipino community in the UAE by providing them a crash course in Accounting for Non Accountants, as part of their community service program.

The first batch of trainees is about to complete the course on Friday, July 26, at Pinoy Club Comfort Inn Hotel. The certificates of attendance will be immediately handed over to the successful participants right after the final part. The course will not convert the participants into full pledged accountants; they will remain non-accountants, but with a good understanding of the accounting profession, fair knowledge of bookkeeping cycle and much better appreciation of the financial reports. It is meant after all to make them better users of financial statements.

The Filipino community warmly received the project, which was originally planned as a one-time activity, to be held annually by the Professional Development Committee. Due to overwhelming response and insistent demand, and to accommodate those who were waitlisted (and actually outnumbering now the first batch of participants), the committee decided to conduct the same course to the second batch of trainees on September 6 & 13, 2002.

The first set of instructors consists of accomplished CPAs and honor graduates from their respective universities in the Philippines, namely Dante Herras, Edgardo Soriano, Mary Geraldine "Jinky" Bacalan-Aguillon and Rediculo Valdehueza, Jr.
