The Certificate in Finance, Accounting and Business (CFAB)

The Certificate in Finance, Accounting and Business (CFAB) provides essential knowledge that can be used in any industry or financial arena.

CFAB consists of six modules and six computer-based assessments. These are the same six modules as the first stage of ICAEW’s leading business and finance qualification, the ACA. Modules include: Business and Finance, Management Information, Accounting (compulsory), Law, Assurance and Principles of Taxation. For more information about the modules, please download the CFAB brochure.

CFAB is a perfect choice if you are:

  • in need of practical and essential knowledge in finance, accounting and business;
  • considering a move into an accountancy or finance role;
  • in a senior non-finance role with a need to understand the fundamentals of finance; and
  • returning to work and in need of refreshing their skills.

CFAB offers a flexible learning and assessment structure and can be achieved in less than 12 months. No previous academic qualifications are required to start studying but we recommend a competence level of IELTS level 6 English Language for non-native English speakers.
