Information On What Will Be Examined

Competency Framework

SAICA developed and approved a competency framework in 2008. This competency framework outlines the competencies expected of a Chartered Accountant (SA) at point of entry into the profession (ie when one is eligible to become a SAICA member).  Following an extensive review process, this document was updated in 2014 and is applicable from January 2016 (ITC). This document is for use by:

  • Academics (to guide them in preparing their courses);
  • Students undertaking an accredited CA stream programme (so that they can have a better understanding of what the CA programme seeks to achieve overall); and
  • SAICA Exam candidates preparing for the ITC and APC.  ITC exam candidates are also required to read this in conjunction with the ITC examinable pronouncements which are updated and posted on the SAICA website annually
