Based on the book “Accounting for Governments: from Budget to Audit” by Michael Parry and Jesse Hughes, this course provides a practical and detailed understanding of government financial management. The course will address conceptual issues, challenges, and detailed techniques used by governments around the world.
A downloadable copy of the book can be purchased as a companion to the course from the PFM Training website, or you can get a hard copy direct from Amazon. Whilst helpful, the book is not necessary for this course as workbooks are provided for each and every module.
Your Diploma course modules are listed below. Each module comprises a series of sections that offer a series of short videos. You must work through the sections one at a time. Once you have completed all of the sections within a module, you will be able to take the end-of-module exam. Successful completion of the exam will allow you to continue to the next module.
Each module has a study pack which consists of a study guide and case study spreadsheets for you to download and work through.
