The iNTEGRITAS Training Philosophy

It is common knowledge that people are an organisation’s most important asset and as such their training and development is critical in today’s competitive market environment. It also follows that the attraction, retention and development of the best people will provide a genuine strategic advantage for any business entity.

iNTEGRITAS, an ACCA platinum approved employer, has developed a training approach that uniquely addresses the dynamic nature of training needs and enables our clients stay one step ahead of their competition by ensuring they get the best out of their accounting staff.

Our training courses are directed at staff involved in accounting, auditing and financial reporting, or those requiring such knowledge. In spite of the specialist knowledge required to carry out these functions efficaciously there is a dearth of practical training courses available in this area. These courses therefore provide an effective step towards bridging the gap between theoretical knowledge and practical application.

Our training courses are practical and interactive, and this makes the training experience both stimulating and effective. They are carefully researched and designed to bring out the best out of all our clients to combine their academic achievements and ‘book knowledge’ with practical activities and hands on skills acquisition necessary for improved performance. The courses also provide updates in regulations, technical issues and changing trends within the profession.
