Abstract

The accounting profession faces many challenges in the age of knowledge, as some of how the accounting function accomplishes its tasks have changed, which raised the question about the importance and value of traditional accounting jobs and skills, which require adopting ideas, work methods, and applications that differ from those previously, in addition to possessing qualifications and skills that were previously unknown. It is necessary to have them in the past. Therefore, there must be references and standards that contribute to the development of the accounting profession, represented by the accounting education standards (IAES), which have a positive impact on the quality of accounting service and activate the continuing education process so that the required task can be presented appropriately, as the continuing education system must have clear goals and outcomes  that meet the needs of the labour market for specialists in the field of practising the accounting profession following the requirements of the current era. Continuing professional development for professional accountants enhances competence, skill and all outcomes of accounting work. Compliance with the International Standards for Accounting Education (IAES) and the application of continuing professional educational requirements by the accountant can also lead to Enhancing the accuracy and reliability of accounts, which is among the most important areas of need in developing the accounting profession, improving training programs for accountants, and modernising the training process.
