It's your last chance to attend DFA classes for the school year (classes will resume in September 2017)! The following DFA classes have open seats and are open to any person interested in learning more about Cornell accounting/finance policies.
Anyone in a service center role is required to complete the Accounting Certification Program within 18 months of employment and re-certify every 3 years.
The Accounting Certification Program (ACP) helps employees develop and enhance accounting skills and knowledge by providing an overview of the accounting function, as well as detailed training on the use of specific accounting tools and their associated policies and procedures. The ACP is constantly growing/changing. As core courses become available, you can take them individually and apply them to the certification.
For all staff members who work with accounting information and who are new to Cornell accounting methods, this class will cover topics including responsibilities for stewardship and fiduciary responsibility at the university, types of accountability, policy resources, standards of ethical conduct, transaction authority reviews and payment approvals, conflicts, financial irregularities, internal controls, risk assessment and monitoring controls. We will also review several case studies based on the material presented.
