Evolving the ACA qualification

Every year we update the ACA syllabus and look for areas where the content needs to evolve to keep pace with regulatory and statutory changes. Then every five to six years we do a full review which includes extensive consultation with stakeholders from around the world to ensure it remains flexible, current, relevant and meets the needs of the market - now and in the future.
