Institute tasks members on professional development through e-platform
President of ICAN, Alhaji Ismaila Zakari who made the appeal at the commissioning of the institutes’ new electronic learning platform in Lagos, declared that E-learning has emerged as a crucial tool of education amid the inevitable consequence of globalisation hence, members should take advantage of the new initiative to increase knowledge acquisition and retention.
Zakari noted that e-learning is not constrained by instructor and classroom capacity, as more people can be trained in less time, stressing that the platform will meet the need of ICAN members in diaspora and others who are unable to attend classroom teachings, due to geographical limitations for current Mandatory Continuing Professional Education (MCPE) delivery.
“More members would be able to access mandatory continuing professional education training, resulting in potential enhancement in the knowledge, skill and competencies of ICAN members. Electronic learning is convenient for members and non-members irrespective of the status/location/environment, to be able to obtain knowledge/MCPE credit hours.
In her remarks; the Chairman, ICAN members’ education and training committee; Her Majesty; Adaku Chidume-Okoro observed that in Nigeria, the development of information technology and increased access to the internet especially through mobile phones has also resulted in the proliferation of greater access to more and new knowledge with new learning options thus accountants in Nigeria can not be left out.
