A very good beginner’s course that prepares one for clerical accounting work usually carried out by Accounts Assistants. This is also a stepping stone of the Accounting Technician Programme. The course comprises of four (4) papers and candidates are required to sit for all the 4 papers at the first sitting. They are also required to complete the course within four sitting – a period of two years.


Entry Requirements

The minimum entry qualification is the Malawi School Certificate of Education (MSCE) or its equivalent.

      Dear Joyce
      Individuals who completed various courses at the December 2015 sitting are advised that certificates are ready for collection. Blantyre-based students are requested to collect them in person from ICAM offices. Students outside Blantyre are advised that their certificates have been dispatched by post. Those who were using college addresses are advised to check with their colleges.
