THE APT APC CATCHUP PROGRAMME

CANDIDATES WRITING THE 2017 JUNE ITC

PROGRAMME OVERVIEW


YOUR IMMEDIATE GOAL IS TO PASS THE ITC

Successful completion of an APC Programme entitles candidates in this position to write the SAICA APC in the year that they passed the Programme and in the two subsequent years in the event that they fail or do not write the APC.

If you complete and Pass this Programme in 2017, you are entitled to write the APC in 2017, 2018 and/or 2019, once you have passed the ITC.

We actively discourage candidates writing the June 2017 ITC from starting the APC Programme in April, given that a single-minded focus is integral to achieving the right results in the ITC.

  • Candidates who have elected to do the 2017 Catchup Programme MAY NOT WITHDRAW and are expected to complete the Programme in 2017.
  • A 50% non-refundable deposit is payable by 30 June.
  • Registration is open and closes on 06 July. No late registrations will be accepted.
  • Failure in either the ITC or Catchup Programme will prevent you from writing the 2017 APC.
  • This stated, the Catchup Programme carries a 3 year validity.
  • In the event that you pass the Catchup Programme but fail the ITC, you may still qualify to write the 2018/2019 APC, subject to your successful rewrite of the ITC.
  • Such a candidate would be allowed to complete our 2018 Refresher Programme at a minimal cost.

APT wishes you all the best for the June 2017 ITC. For your preparation for the ITC, APT supports the Gauteng Board Course NOVO Course.
