Types of Financial Management Courses
Are you wondering what your options are? With us there are so many financial management courses to pick and choose from. You simply need to decide which option works best for you. We offer two types of financial management programs: NATED Financial Management Courses and Provider Programs.
NATED Financial Management Courses
NATED Courses are aimed at students who have just obtained their matric. These courses are aimed at encouraging students to study further, gain entrepreneurial skills and become work ready. Completing these courses will lead to a national diploma. We offer the following NATED Financial Management Courses.
Once you have completed all three courses, and done your 18 months of practical training, you will obtain your National Diploma. These courses will equip you with the skills to do accounting, numeracy and admin work.
Provider programs are courses that are developed by a college itself. Our provider programs have been designed with the aim at offering education to all. We believe that the doors of learning should be open to everyone. This is why we have created financial management provider courses that can fill that need. These are:
- Financial Management Short Course
- Financial Management Certificate Course
- Financial Management Comprehensive Certificate Course
While these courses are not NATED, they are still recognised and will help a great deal towards progressing your career. We are a widely acknowledged distance learning college, once students complete our courses they go on to achieve great success.
Now that you have an idea on the difference between NATED and Provider Courses you need to decide which option will work best for you. This will depend largely on whether or not you will meet the entry requirements for each course.
The entry requirements for NATED courses are the following:
- Must have a Grade 12 or equivalent certificate
- Be able to read, write and understand English
If you don’t have Matric but really want to enrol into our NATED courses, why not sign up for adult matric? With our adult matric option all you need is to be 21 years and older. Once you’ve completed your Grade 12 then you can go ahead and enrol into the NATED Financial Management Courses.
For our provider programs there are NO specific requirements. Regardless of your age or current qualification you can enrol and further your studies. This is just one of the ways we prioritise learning for all.
Is a Financial Management Course Right for me?
With our courses you don’t need a specific skill set to enrol, but it does help to have certain natural attributes before getting started. It is important to note that most these skills, if not all, can be worked on and improved with the right training.
In your role as financial manager you will have to evaluate techniques and methods. Because of this having an analytical mind is a skill needed to succeed.
Any professional work environment expects you to communicate effectively. If you feel you have trouble with this, don’t worry. All our courses offer business English as a subject. This will teach you how to communicate verbally and non-verbally.
Eager to Learn
All we ask is that you give learning a real shot. Any field of study expects you to constantly upgrade your skills. Financial Management is no different. Even if you have been in the industry for years, our courses will give you a fresh perspective on the field.
