Career building ICB Financial Accounting Qualifications

Qualifications from the Institute of Certified Bookkeepers (ICB) are a valuable resource in today’s current job market. ICB Financial accounting qualifications give you an advantage in South Africa, as they equip you with a scarce skill. Scarce skills are positions where the most jobs are available, but there are not enough qualified people to fill all of the available positions. This means that you will be more employable as there are more opportunities available to you in South Africa.

Getting Qualified

The first step to becoming a valuable asset to any business, is to make sure that you have the required knowledge to do the job. Having a qualification from an accredited institution is one of the best ways to do this. Accredited qualifications show future employers that you truly understand the work you need to do. These qualifications need to meet strict guidelines and are regularly reviewed and updated. This is to ensure that they are relevant and enable you to effectively do your job after you finish them.

The ICB Courses are registered on the National Qualifications Framework (NQF) and are accredited by the Quality Council for Trades and Occupations (QCTO). This means that you can be certain that your ICB qualification will be recognised in the job market. All ICB course providers are also required to be registered with the Department of Higher Education and Training (DHET). This ensures that you will never receive and ICB Course from a fly-by-night or cash-grab college.

Reliable Qualifications

The ICB has spent more than 85 years developing their courses to improve the skills of accountants and business managers in South Africa. They have built numerous positive relationships with many of the top companies in South Africa. Their qualifications are recognised, not only locally, but internationally as well. This makes it possible for you to apply for international opportunities given the right circumstances. The continuous efforts of the ICB along with the QCTO means that their Financial Accounting qualifications are reliable and will always have value in your career.

Career Advantages

There are a few benefits of studying an ICB financial accounting qualification. One of which is the ability to apply for a job as soon as you have completed your very first certificate with them. You are able to start working as a certified junior bookkeeper after completing only the NQF Level 3 Junior Bookkeeping Certificate. The ICB has also made it possible to study their courses through accredited distance learning institutions, such as TWP Academy. This means you can study from the comfort of your own home, or even while you are employed full-time.

Employers usually have a certain level of admiration for those people who complete their studies while working. It demonstrates to them that you aren’t afraid to work hard and that you have the discipline needed to further your career. This can count in your favour during your next interview or promotion opportunity

Progress Possibilities

Working while you study means you can level up your career as you complete various course levels. Each of the courses in the ICB Financial Accounting Programme are created to qualify for increasing levels of responsibility in your career. As you complete each level, you will become eligible for a higher position in your career. Keep in mind that most companies require a certain amount of work experience to qualify for a certain job. You can gain this experience alongside your studies if you choose to study via distance learning. And the opportunities available to you will increase as you continue your studies with the ICB.
