As of July 2015, the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants currently offers two free online accounting courses: Introduction to Financial and Management Accounting and Intermediate Financial and Management Accounting. These university-level courses are taught by certified faculty members and are available through edX.
These two accounting courses follow the same curriculum as traditional on-campus classes but are free for anyone who wishes to enroll. Enrolled students complete assignments online at their own pace and receive feedback from their professors on their progress. These courses are an excellent resource for those who prefer a structured learning environment.
Unlike traditional university classes, these courses do not provide college credits upon completion. Students are encouraged to audit the classes simply for knowledge and experience. However, for a small fee, the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants will offer students who successfully complete the course a certification of completion.
