Online International Business Valuation Standards & Ethics Course

Registration Open for First-Ever Online Business Valuation Standards & Ethics Course

Toronto, ON May 30, 2017 – The International Institute of Business Valuers (iiBV) is pleased to announce the online availability of the industry’s first-ever International Business Valuation Standards & Ethics course, in partnership with Business Valuation Resources Inc. (BVR).

Based on the 2017 International Valuation Standards (IVS 2017) issued though the International Valuation Standards Council (IVSC), the iiBV’s BV201 International Business Valuation Standards & Ethics online course is designed for self-study and customized learning. Valuation professionals will be able to complete the course through downloadable materials, and short modules and videos that are structured around a complex global case study.

The course was developed by Karin Lusnic ASA, ARM, and reviewed by the Education Committee of the iiBV under the leadership of Andrew Strickland. The instructor, John Barton CPA, ASA, leads the participants through the course materials and case study in a series of short videos. John’s easy going and informative style results in a quality course.

Professionals will learn the purpose of and need for IVS and a code of ethical principles, and the practical application of these principles in their client work. The course elaborates on the must, should and may concepts in IVS for engagement management and reporting. Participants will also understand the bridge issues between various existing standards and IVS.

Nick Talbot, CEO of IVSC, comments that, “the valuation industry has needed a way to establish standards in practice and ethics across the globe. The iiBV Standards Course will teach what every valuation professional will need to offer best-practice approaches in meeting the needs of the global marketplace.”
Participants who complete the course, including the exam, will receive a certificate of completion and will be able to:

• Describe the role of international valuation standards and a code of ethical principles in the context of global harmonization;
• Apply IVS 2017 and ethical principles in their professional work and reports;
