Are you looking for a SAIPA training contract?

Colenbrander Inc is an SAIPA-accredited Training Centre, under the name C2 Financial Services Trust. We are committed to this role and look for trainees who are driven and passionate; so that they can become top-quality Professional Accountants.

A professional accountant is someone who works as an accountant in practice, commerce, industry, government or academia. A professional accountant in public practice offers accountancy and allied services, excluding auditing, to the general public and the business community, especially in the SMME sector.
There are three steps to qualify to become a Professional Accountant (SA):

  • Academic
  • Register as a Trainee
  • Write your Professional Evaluation (PE) Exam

A prospective SAIPA trainee must either have, or be studying towards, a B.Com Degree from an SAIPA-accredited tertiary institution.

The degree must include the following core subjects:

  • Financial Accounting 3
  • Taxation 1
  • Auditing 1 OR Internal Auditing 2 OR Internal Control and Code of Ethics
  • Corporate Law 1 OR Commercial Law 2
  • Management Accounting 1/Financial Management 1

The duration of the SAIPA training contract is 3 years.

A candidate can start a training contract on completion of a relevant degree or can study part-time through UNISA and begin a training contract immediately.

Once a trainee has completed their degree and obtained practical experience by completing a three year learnership with an SAIPA-accredited training centre, they are required to write and pass the SAIPA Professional Evaluation (PE) Examination. This determines a trainee’s ability to integrate academic knowledge with the practical skills required in the workplace.

Once the above requirements have been met, the person can register as a Professional Accountant (SA) at SAIPA.
