ACCA - The global body for professional accountants

Experience is one of the three main components of the ACCA qualification. The other two components are exams and ethics. ACCA members must demonstrate their competence in ten broad competency areas, appropriate for the Complete Finance Professional. To demonstrate their competence, students must complete nine performance objectives which must be verified by an IFAC qualified practical experience supervisor. All five Essentials performance objectives must all be completed plus a further four Technical performance objectives from a choice of 15.

The demonstration of the achievement of these objectives are recorded using an online tool called MyExperience.
