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