ACA Certificate Level (or CFAB) is made up of 6 exams and is the entry level which leads onto the Professional Level as part of the Full ACA qualification. You can sit these exams in any order and study throughout the year at home, in one of our UK training centres or online.
Certificate Level exams are available to sit on demand. To book, please just contact your local centre.
The Professional Level consists of a further 6 modules. These build on the knowledge gained from the Certificate Level modules.
These will be transitioning over to a computer-based exam format in a phased approach over 2017 and 2018. The most up to date schedule for these is available on the ICAEW website.
The Advanced Level is made up of 3 papers which can be sat all together or separately. Case Study is the final exam which builds on all prior knowledge gained throughout the qualification. We run courses towards both of the ICAEW’s 2 exam sittings each year.
Specialise in Tax with the joint programme between the Chartered Institute of Taxation (CIOT) and the ICAEW. Replace the ICAEW's Business Planning Tax paper with a CIOT paper, you can become ACA and CTA qualified in just 3-4 years.
