Become authorised to train ACA students

It's incredibly easy to train ICAEW Chartered Accountants. Thousands of organisations attract and retain talented individuals by offering the prestigious ACA qualification. So, if you’re looking to ensure your organisation can achieve its ambitions, join the growing number of employers globally who are authorised to train ACA students.

Before you begin training, you will need to be authorised by ICAEW. You don’t need to be a particular type of organisation to become authorised. We have around 5,000 authorised training employers around the world – both large and small, from every kind of sector.

It is a simple three-step process that is free of charge and usually takes 3-4 weeks.
