Start a lucrative career in accountancy with ACCA (Association of Chartered Certified Accounts) which is a leading global body for professional accountants that will give the career opportunities you are seeking, especially since finance is the lifeblood of any organisation and the demand for finance professionals has never been higher.

For instance, The CAT course of ACCA provides a route to enter the ACCA (Skills Level) course for those who have just sat the O/L. The course equips the student with the technical skills and knowledge for a support role in accountancy. It is a qualification in itself and entitles the student to use the designator letters CAT.
On completing the CAT course the student, proceeds with the professional course and also gains the Honours Degree in Applied Accounting. All these qualifications are collected whilst the student progresses with the G.C.E. A /Level. No other accounting course offers the student this additional benefit.
The flexibility of the CAT course offers students ample choice and options. Students can sit for any number of papers out of the nine needed for completion of course.
On passing the first five subjects the student gains to part I of ACCA and on passing all nine subjects to part II of ACCA. The course also allows the student to sit either paper based or computer based examinations.
The CAT Course is a boon to students hoping to qualify as globally accepted accountants and offers them the gateway to a career for life. For more information visit www.accaglobal.com or office at 424, R A De Mel Mawatha, Colombo 3. Email info@lk.accaglobal.com.
