Scarce Skills and ICB

What Are Scarce Skills?

Scarce or critical skills are qualifications or skill sets that are in-demand because very few people have them. Scarce skills are a great way to ensure that you get a job, keep a job and earn a rather good salary. 

The great part about scarce skills is that you can also get them without having finished your matric year. 

AI technology is also less likely to take over your job if you have qualifications in scarce skills. 

Here is an infographic from Briefly to show the top critical skills in South Africa.

Who Is ICB?

The Institute of Certified Bookkeepers is a distance learning institution that offers courses in business and financial management. 

Each one of their 3 study programmes is considered a scarce or critical skill in South Africa and in some instances, the world. This is why each of their qualifications are internationally recognised. 

All ICB qualifications are also held in high regard by employers, that means that not only will you find a job because you have a critical skill, but also because employers hold ICB qualifications in high regard.
