    Convenient Upskill

    Once learners have completed the Foundation Level, they can further their studies through two short courses: Financial Statements, and Cost and Management. When broken down into smaller modules, these cover subjects such as:

    • Asset disposal
    • Year-end adjustments
    • Business ethics
    • Financial management

    If you choose to complete the modules consecutively, you can enrol in the Intermediate Level and work your way to a FET certificate in Bookkeeping within six months.

    Convenient Learning

    At SACOB, students have the ability to study the ICB accredited course from any location in South Africa. There is, therefore, no need to give up your daily responsibilities. Consequently, employed learners can participate in these courses while they work; and business owners can use them to upskill their existing staff too.

    By completing a portfolio of evidence and evaluations, delivering all assignments, and sitting the final exam, learners will receive their National Qualification. You can then officially be recognised by the ICB to practice bookkeeping, which can lead to:

    • Promotions in the workplace
    • Further knowledge in financial literacy
    • Additional job responsibilities

    Your Choice

    With SACOB online programmes, students are provided with lecturer details should they run into areas of misunderstanding, as well as login details for the learner portal. Here they can converse with other class members and receive additional instruction.

    What’s more, they are given tree options regarding how they work through the material:

    • Home Study, Online Classroom or Blended Learning
