SS&C's Zoologic FASB Accounting Standards Codification course is aimed at individuals with a working knowledge of financial statement analysis who are interested in learning how the Codification is changing the way GAAP is referenced in financial statement notes and disclosures. This course will explain the Codification, discuss the reasons FASB created the Codification, outline the structure of the Codification hierarchy, and explain how to reference accounting standards in financial statements according to the Codification.
"We are very proud to release our new FASB Accounting Standards Codification course at a time when many are trying to piece together the impact the Codification has had on how financial information is reported under GAAP," said Bill Stone, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, SS&C Technologies. "Because financial statement analysis represents the backbone of virtually all functions in our client base, it is imperative that we help our clients stay on top of recent developments in this area."
