Course Description

The ACCA’s Certified Accounting Technician (CAT) qualification will provide you with a solid foundation in finance and accounting. You will learn all the necessary technical skills and knowledge required to perform an accounting-support role. Whether you wish to start a career in finance, gain recognition for the skills and experience you have, or want to move on to a more senior position in accountancy, the CAT qualification will help you towards your career goal. 

The CAT qualification is internationally recognised and highly regarded. To achieve CAT status you will need to complete a set of examinations and one-year's practical experience in the workplace. The CAT qualification is flexible and allows you to study at your own pace and achieve a work-life balance that suits you. It usually takes one and a half years to complete the nine CAT exams. And after passing the CAT exams, you will be able to gain exemptions from the ACCA Qualification and be one step closer to professional status.

In addition, MCKL has Platinum level approval from ACCA as an approved learning partner, having met a range of challenges in performance, management and delivery of its Accounting courses.
