Qualifications from the Institute of Certified Bookkeepers (ICB)

All these courses are from the ICB. They are closely related to careers where there are a shortage of qualified people in South Africa. Careers like accountant, bookkeeper, office administrator, public sector accountant and clerk or office worker.


Recognised qualifications

The ICB courses are fully accredited. Just make sure you study with a college that has been accredited by the ICB to offer their courses.

This is the right starting point for new job seekers. The skills you learn will make you employable in any organisation.


Study via distance learning

I work for Skills Academy – a Private Distance Learning College. So I always have something good to say about distance learning!

The ICB courses have been developed to offer via distance learning. The study materials have been written to make them easy to use for the home study student. Your college will also help you with your studies via email, the telephone and online study groups.

Distance learning is also a good choice for someone who is already working, and who cannot take time off from work to study. You study in the evenings, and you study as fast or as slow as you want.


Many chances to write your exams

This year the ICB has five exam sessions spread through the year for distance learning students. So the moment you feel ready to do you exam, you can register for the next session. If you do not feel ready, and you miss an exam, you do not lose a lot of time, because there is another exam in three months time.


Study costs to keep in mind

a) Study fees you pay to your college

b) Cost of textbooks (you have to determine if your course provider includes all the books and notes in the course fees).

c) Exam costs (the payments you need to make to the ICB for each exam - there is a cost per subject that you write).

d) ICBA Membership charges (you can become a Student Member of the ICBA, and there are student membership fees for this).

e) Delivery costs for home study trainees (are your courier fees included in your course fees?).


What Can I Study After I Have Completed My ICB Course?

The ICB is connected to a variety of professional bodies. So, depending upon exactly what ICB courses you have actually completed, you could go on to study further at these expert bodies.

South African Business Accountants (SAIBA).

South African Institute for Tax Professionals (SAIT).

Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA).



The Role of the ICBA – Professional Designations

The ICB is closely connected to a Professional Body called the Institute of Certified Bookkeepers and Accountants (ICBA). The ICBA is acknowledged by SAQA as a Professional Body and for the registration of 7 expert designations on the National Qualifications Framework (NQF).

These expert designations are connected to the various ICB courses. Indicating that if you study a specific ICB course, then that course, together with a particular amount of relevant work experience, can get you your professional designation from the ICBA.

Here is a slideshow on ICB courses you can study via distance learning.
