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. The name has since been changed to the CA (SA) Training Programme. On the CA (SA) Training Programme, training is provided through commerce and industry, as opposed to the traditional route of audit firms.
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. By rotating through our different business areas, you will fulfill the requirements of the South African Institute of Chartered Accountants, and possibly even throw in a bit of travel on the side by working outside of South Africa.
