ICB Financial Accounting

There is a skills shortage in finance-related jobs in South Africa, especially as trainee accountant, debt collector, finance management, office administration, accountant and accounts clerk. This creates tremendous career opportunities for you, but If you want a career in finance, you'll most certainly need at least one finance qualification. And you might not know that this is possible even without a matric.

“After attending one of the IBTC Prep classes I really got more confidence and I believed that I would be able to do this. When going through my books again a saw answers that was right in front of my eyes  , but never could see it because of the wrong mind set I had. Studying with IBTC so far was great , the student advisers are always friendly and helpful so are the Tutor assistance. Change your mind set to positivity and IBTC could do wonders for you and your career.”- Mariska  Kammies
