How to become a Chartered Accountant online with Milpark Education

 ·7 Dec 2022

Milpark Education, a leading South African education provider, has launched South Africa’s first fully online path to becoming a chartered accountant.

The recently launched BCom Accounting course forms part of Milpark Education’s newly established School of Professional Accounting (incorporating CA Connect) and is a great way to begin your journey to becoming a chartered accountant.

Milpark Education already offers a SAICA-accredited Postgraduate Diploma in Accounting (PGDA), so you can now complete the journey from undergraduate to chartered accountant (CA) completely online.

The process for how South Africans can now become a CA online is as follows:

  1. Apply to study a BCom Accounting at Milpark Education’s School of Professional Accounting.
  2. After successfully completing your BCom Accounting, you can apply to be admitted to Milparks’ SAICA-accredited PGDA.
  3. Write and pass SAICA’s ITC after completing your PGDA.
  4. Enter a training contract with a SAICA-accredited training office.
  5. Complete the professional programme (board course) and finish your training contract.

Once you have completed these steps, you can register to become a CA.

Supporting students

Milpark recognises that students have different needs and are at various stages of their life, which is why its School of Professional Accounting offers two intakes every year – for “full” and “half” workloads.

Its deeply contextual learning also focuses on technical skills and problem solving.

“We see influencing the future of education as one of our key responsibilities, and we take it very seriously,” said Andrew Horsfall, CEO of Milpark Education.

“We partner with our students, respect them, and do our best to work with them to unlock their human potential, which is so often trapped due to our South African context.”

Milpark Education lives up to this promise by offering a student journey that goes beyond normal lecturer input to include consultations, live sessions, mentorships, peer support groups, and study support groups.

This is available through a student platform that hosts specialist advisors who help students manage their workloads and provide motivational and psychosocial counselling.

“We have always felt that if we were only able to have more time with students, to help shape them from the beginning, we would be able to make much more meaningful of an impact,” said Horsfall.

“We provide a safe environment for students, whom we recognise as having great human potential, to actualise it and we are now pleased to expand this into the Chartered Accounting space.”
