Benefits of Studying ICB Courses

The Institute of Certified Bookkeepers (ICB) offers a number of high quality courses to prepare you for the workplace. You will also have a chance to register with professional membership bodies. But that’s not all. Here are some of the other benefits of studying an ICB course:

  • Earn Your Qualifications Quickly – No need to study for years before searching for a job in your field. After each level you complete, you will receive a qualification. Some levels can take you as little as four months!
  • Internationally Recognised – Travel and take your career along with you. With ICB offices in Africa, the UK, Australia, Asia, and Eastern Europe, you can have a job anywhere you choose. 
  • Learn Scarce Skills – Studying ICB Courses are valuable because they give you scarce skills. This means you are more likely to find a job as these skills appeal to the needs of the South African job market.
  • Work Your way to the Top – These courses are great because they are levels based. This means you can start with junior levels and move to more advanced stages, earning qualifications as you go.

How do ICB Courses Work?

The ICB is not a college. They are responsible for marking your exams and authorising your qualifications. They do not offer support or study material. This means you will first have to register with an accredited institution and then register with the ICB. Here’s how it all works:   

Portfolio of Evidence

The ICB requires each student to submit a Portfolio of Evidence (PoE). It’s basically a workbook containing all the tests and assignments you did during the course. You will have to hand this in before your final exams. This will count toward 30% of your final mark. 

Exams 

If you study full-time, you’ll have monthly exams. But if you choose distance learning you will have exams only four times a year. These will take place all around the country, at venues approved by the ICB. Your exams will make up 70% of your final mark. 

Where to Study ICB Courses in South Africa

Want to know what makes an ICB qualification even more amazing? You can study it full-time, part-time or via distance learning! Yes, that’s right. This qualification is for anyone – from the student seeking campus life to the working parent wanting more career options. 

Distance Learning

Classrooms not your thing? Don’t worry, with our distance learning courses you won’t ever have to set foot in one. You can study from the comfort of your own home, and follow your own schedule. This gives you the chance to take care of all your responsibilities while earning a qualification at the same time. 

Is This the Right Course for me?

These courses are designed for those who have a passion for business and finance. If you want to climb the corporate ladder, then these courses were definitely made for you. Be ready to work hard and success will be right at your fingertips.
