The IFRS Foundation is developing stand-alone training modules, one for each section of the 2015 version of the IFRS for SMEs Standard. Materials will be made available as they are completed in the coming months.
Each module includes the following:
- Introduction—an overview of the module, including:
- Learning objectives—a description of the capabilities and competences that the learner should attain by successfully completing the module.
