- The Professional Stage consists of knowledge modules which introduce you to the core concepts underpinning accountancy, and the application modules where you can demonstrate how you can develop and apply technical knowledge and skills.
- The Advanced Stage is where the ACA demonstrates its world-leading quality. The Corporate Reporting and Strategic Business Management modules test your understanding and strategic decision making at a senior level. They present real-life scenarios, with increased complexity and wider implications from the Professional Level modules. The Case Study presents a complex business issue which challenges your ability to problem solve, identify ethical implications and provide effective solutions. The Case Study tests through contextualisation the knowledge, skills and experience you have gained to date.
- Certificate Level: These six modules will introduce the fundamentals of accountancy, finance and business
The modules can be taken in any order with the exception of the Case Study which has to be attempted last. You must pass every exam (or receive credit for prior learning) – there are no options. This ensures that once qualified, all ICAEW Chartered Accountants have a consistent level of knowledge, skills and experience.
To achieve the ACA, practical work experience, or on-the-job training is needed. Students will be placed under a training contract with an Authorised Training Employer (ATE). You need to complete 450 days of training, which normally takes between 3 to 5 years, pass the ICAEW exams and complete your professional development competencies.
