Are ICB Courses Accredited

Yes, ICB courses are accredited. 

When considering tertiary education, we all want to choose courses that are accredited and can get us the furthest in our specific careers. So, at the end of the day, it all comes down to courses that are accredited and recognised. 

That is why programmes offered by the Institute of Certified Bookkeepers are a great decision for any student to make. All ICB courses are accredited by both the ICB and the QCTO.

Here is everything you need to know about ICB courses and their accreditation.

The Accreditation

Every course provided by the Institute of Certified Bookkeepers is accredited by both the QCTO and ICB. All of their courses are nationally recognised which means that you can work anywhere you find yourself. 

Not only are each of these courses accredited, but they are also highly recognised by employers. With an ICB qualification, you are more likely to find a job.

It is, however, important to remember that despite their accreditation they do not provide study material. When studying through ICB, you will have to study through an ICB accredited college that offers study material, study support and relevant tutoring. 

Benefits of Studying an ICB Course

All of the ICB programmes fall under critical skills in South Africa. That means that by having one of these qualifications, you are an ‘in-demand’ employee. 

Not only will you easily find a job, but it also means that employers might just come looking for you. Most critical skills in South Africa are also lucrative careers. So why not get started?

Where can I study and ICB Course?

There are over 500 accredited institutions that offer either distance learning or classroom-learning options. Have a look at which institution is closest to you or which you think would be most applicable. 

Why Distance Learning is the Best Option

Distance learning has a few more perks than classroom learning. Here are a few reasons why you should choose distance learning when considering studying with ICB: 

It is Affordable

Distance learning is a great way to save money. Not only is it cheaper than going to the equivalent classroom based course, but you will also save money on transport.

If you do not have to travel to class, it means you can work from the comfort of your home.

You Choose When To Study

With distance learning and ICB, you get to choose when to study and when to write the exams. Finally, a study programme that is tailored to your time and not the other way around. 

With ICB distance-learning, you write the exams when you feel ready. 

You Can Work And Study

If you work while you study, you can earn promotions as you build on your qualification. It also shows your employer that you have a great amount of dedication and can handle a high workload.

Not to mention that you will still be getting paid while furthering your studies.

Choosing Matric College

Matric College is a highly reputable institution that offers all courses under the 5 ICB programmes. 

Matric College is also a student-dedicated institution with various tutoring platforms for all of its students to ensure that they pass.
