APC Professional Programme, Endunamoo’s SAICA accredited professional programme, is an innovative programme designed for first time and repeat APC candidates. The programme’s success is underpinned by a strong focus on development of business acumen, business writing, critical thinking and ethical leadership. These skills are developed through various practical and professional methods which includes discussion sessions, individual and group assessments, and case study assessments.
The enrolment into the APC Professional Programme for the APC December 2021 assessment closed on Monday, 3 May 2021. Currently prospective candidates may only register for the EPC Case Study package, details of which are provided on the next tab entitled ‘EPC’.
