CAT stands for Certified Accounting Technician and the qualification provides a strong foundation of knowledge in finance and accounting.

In addition, once the qualification has been obtained, students may progress onto the ACCA Qualification if they wish to do so; starting at the Applied Skills exams. The four essentials competences and one year’s work experience gained to achieve the CAT Qualification can also count towards the three years’ work experience and 13 performance objectives required for the ACCA Qualification.
