The American Institute of CPAs (AICPA) has partnered with state CPA societies and/or state departments of education, along with the creator of the program, Dr. Dan Deines, CPA, to help you further your impact by inviting you to attend training on higher order accounting curriculum called the Accounting Pilot & Bridge Project (APBP). Why high school? AICPA research has found the first accounting course high school students take greatly impacts their decision to pursue accounting as a major and career choice. By signing up to be a part of the Accounting Pilot & Bridge Project, you’ll learn how to bring your students more advanced, engaging accounting content and inspire the next generation of CPAs.
Not only is this program free, but you’ll also receive a $200 stipend for participating.
Teachers in the program will be provided:
- Daily lesson plans and assignments
- Pre-written exams with answer keys
- A textbook, including teacher’s notes and Power Point presentations
- Exclusive access to online teaching resources, refresher videos and webcasts. All courtesy of AICPA and Start Here, Go Places.
- Continuous support from APBP trainers
The course is modeled on a class Dan Deines developed at Kansas State University with the goal of providing a higher level accounting curriculum for high schools to better prepare their students for a career in accounting. To date, more than 1,000 high school teachers in 42 states have been trained through the program and are able to teach the course in their local schools. High school teachers who go through the program will receive support from the AICPA as they work to implement the course in their state.
