What is CAT?
CAT stands for Certified Accounting Technician and the qualification provides a strong foundation of knowledge in finance and accounting. It is provided by the ACCA for those students who do not wish to study for the full ACCA Qualification or who do not satisfy the entry requirements and wish to study later for the full ACCA Qualification.
The CAT Qualification offers a route into the ACCA Qualification, providing you with a development path for employees with high potential. CAT graduates are allowed to move directly to Fundamentals Level (Skills Module).
When you have fulfilled the criteria for CAT status, ACCA will confer on you the title of Certified Accounting Technician and you will be able to use the letters ‘CAT’ after your name.
