PwC Namibia develops CA's

With the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Namibia having released the results of the first professional exam towards becoming a Chartered Accountant, the Initial Test of Competence (ITC), PwC Namibia has announced that 14 of its 18 trainees passed the exam.

That translates to a 78% percent pass rate. In 2017, 19 new CA's obtained their qualification through PwC Namibia training contracts. Fifteen of these are from previously disadvantaged groups. PwCs candidates had a 100 percent pass rate in the second professional exam towards becoming a Chartered Accountant, the Assessment of Professional Competence (APC), for which results were announced on 24 February 2017. 

Nangula Uaandja, country senior partner at PwC Namibia said, "Achieving such great results is a blessing that comes with hard work and God's favor. This is the second year the have four of the national's top five. We are proud not only of our trainees but also of our partners and managers who invest a significant amount of time in the coaching and development of these young professionals." 

"We would like to congratulate them, and look forward to the positive contributions that they will make in various industries across our beautiful Namibia." Since 1990 154 CA's have trained with PwC Namibia, and a majority to these were financed through the PwC Namibia bursary programme.
