Important qualification update - AAT(SA)

Withdrawal of planned launch in South Africa for AQ2016

Due to limitations in the South African regulatory environment, and after careful consideration, AAT will not be transitioning to AQ2016. This means that AQ2016 will no longer be launched in South Africa; however the existing AQ2010 suite of qualifications will continue in line with registration dates set out below.  

Extension to registration dates for AQ2010

A fast-track realignment process will be followed to convert and register existing qualifications with the Quality Council for Trades and Occupations (QCTO). To ensure continuity and a smooth transition from the existing qualifications to the new QCTO registered qualifications, we are pleased to inform you that the following qualifications will be extended for student registrations until 31 December 2017.

  • Level 3 Certificate: Accounting Technician (SAQA ID: 73710)
  • Level 4 Further Education and Training Certificate: Accounting Technician (SAQA ID: 77143)
