PREPARATION – SAICA ACCREDITATION OR RE-ACCREDITATION VISITS

Since 1996 we have been developing CA Programmes and performing effective independent assessments.

Slider

Once accreditation as a SAICA Training Office has been awarded, a Training Office is required to continue meeting the accreditation criteria set by SAICA. SAICA moderates a Training Office’s compliance.

Dependent on a risk rating that is awarded to the Training Office will determine the number of visit to the Training Office by SAICA. Should a Training Office continually fail to comply with SAICA’s accreditation criteria, it will result in the Training Office being de-accredited.

Although Training Offices are required to continually comply with SAICA’s re-accreditation criteria, many Training Offices find themselves lacking in a number of areas or in a few critical areas when evaluated by SAICA. The intention of the re-accreditation interventions are for SAICA to develop and support Training Offices, but they still result in a significant amount of pressure and stress on the Training Officer and administrators as they prepare and collate the relevant evidence required to prove compliance.
