BECOMING A REGISTERED ACCOUNTANT & AUDITOR - RAA (NAM)

The path for any individual who wants to become a Registered Accountant and Auditor, registered with PAAB, starts with the successful completion of Grade 12.  From here there are two choices available for the academic part of the journey: registering with either the ACCA or with ICAN for either the Strategic Professional qualification, or the Certficate in the Theory of Accounting (CTA) qualification.  Both these qualifications are at the level of Chartered Accountant, and recognized by the PAAB.

- Grade 12
- Register for academic program (from the two mentioned above)
- Seek employment with registered audit firm, under Articles of Clerkship
- Register a 5-year training contract with PAAB, while studying towards the chosen qualification
Unaccredited degree
