The knowledge needed to function effectively as a professional accountant in public practice, commerce, education, the public sector or any other environment continues to expand and change at a rapid rate. Therefore continuing the development of your professional competence by enhancing your knowledge and skills will ensure that you deliver the best possible service to your stakeholders and protect the CA(SA) designation.
