The CA (SA) Training Programme is a training route for accounting trainees who want to qualify as chartered accountants (SA). The Programme was established in July 1997, motivated by the move of qualified CAs (SA) to the private industry and has grown to produce a number of chartered accountants.
CA (SA) Training Programme candidates specialise in financial management rather than auditing. As the trainees are being trained to become well-rounded chartered accountants, a major part of their training includes financial accounting, management accounting, information and taxation.
Our chartered accounting CA(SA) programme caters for the brightest and the best, who gain the essential financial management skills, commercial exposure and leadership capabilities to further their career.
