SACOB really made it very easy for me! I am a mother of 2 young children and I have a full-time job. So finding time to study towards ICB National Diploma in Financial Accounting is very limited, but everyone at SACOB has always been very understanding and supportive! I am very glad I found them and do not regret studying with SACOB for a moment!!! Thank you all!... read more
