The Certificate in Business Accounting is CIMA’s entry level accounting qualification for students with little or no accounting background.
The certificate level gives you business experience beyond just financial accounting and you’ll gain insight into how the different areas of accounting relate to the business world.
It can be seen as a knowledge refresher course or a foundation to a career in business and finance. The Certificate in Business Accounting forms the basis of the CIMA Professional Qualification and is a valuable qualification on its own.
CIMA's Certificate in Business Accounting comprises four exams, as outlined below:
We have develop two packages for the CIMA Certificate Objective Test exams:
- HTFT live: scheduled live online sessions, supported by topic recordings, to guide you through
- HTFT on-demand: engage with the full suite of HTFT resources, at your pace
In its simplest form we have flipped the classroom for CIMA.
That is, we provide you with a series of pre-recorded CIMA topic related videos that we ask to you watch before a series of timetabled liveMasterclasses (timetables on the right hand side), where the time with your dedicated tutor focuses on the application of knowledge and question practice rather than teaching you content you will have developed by watching the pre-recorded videos.
Everything we deliver (including the Masterclasses) is recorded, so throughout your course you will be able to go and re-watch everything that we have created together. This forms the content for our on-demand courses.
All of our resources are built using our own HTFT Student Notes, and whilst we send out the CIMA approved books – they are to be used as additional study resources.
