ICB Bridging Course

Still haunted by your high school marks or never got the chance to finish matric? Well, you can now skip night school entirely and jump straight into a post-school qualification.

Who Qualifies for the ICB Bridging Course?

The bridging course is perfect for students who want to further their studies towards an ICB qualification, but they don’t meet the standard entry requirements.

Generally, a student who falls short goes back to school. But the ICB National Certificate: Bookkeeping, which is NQF level 3, eliminates this step.

Why Choose the ICB Bridging Course

An ICB Bridging Course could just be the best decision for your future. Not only will it help you gain entry for your dream course, but it will also help you secure a place in the job market. 

Ease Into the Transition – School and tertiary education are not the same. By doing a bridging course, you will ease into this transition. 

Get a Taste of Post-School Studies – You might not know if the course you are hoping to gain admission for is really for you. A bridging course might be the deciding factor. 

Get a Little More Value – A bridging course, especially an ICB qualification, holds a little more weight than a matric certificate. 

Broaden Your Horizons – Once completed, you can immediately enter the workplace and earn a handsome income with junior bookkeeper or accounts clerk positions.
