Registrations for the 2024 APC Professional Programme will open on Monday, 22 January 2024 at 10am

The Assessment of Professional Competence is the final academic requirement to qualifying as a CA(SA). The APC is a case study assessment that focuses on professional skills, requiring you to apply the technical competence you have already demonstrated at university and in the ITC to a scenario that simulates the real-life expectations placed on a newly-qualified CA(SA).

Our programme is about more than just passing an exam, it is designed to grow your professional competence and set you up for the next stage in your career.

We provide you with the maximum level of flexibility together with maximum opportunity for engagement with the programme material and the academic team.

We will host a live Q&A session on Wednesday, 24 January 2024 at 6pm. CLICK HERE to join this session (please remember to diarise this).
