ICB Assessment and Award

Using the ICB (Institute of Certified Bookkeepers) programme material, 30% of your final mark is calculated from the activities and evaluations you undertake during your Entrepreneurial distance learning course. Your Portfolio of Evidence (POE) is a folder you will receive once you have registered for your assessment, and it must include all tests and assignments you have completed for each module.

You will be required to do a written exam for each module, which accounts for 70% of your final mark and you will include that in your POE, which must be submitted to an ICB assessor. Assessment Centre are located throughout South Africa, so please visit to find an exam venue closest to you. Upon successful completion of your exam, ICB will certify you with a statement of competence showing the respective unit standards, which you have completed.

What our past students said


“I’m an independent person who likes to move fast through my studies, at times however, I get distracted due to work or family matters – then little progress is made. I completed my course in the allocated time and obtained great results. I use the information learnt on a daily basis in my work and in all my communications with others.  As soon as I’m ready I’ll be enrolling for a course on Marketing with A.O.Y.”

Cathy Oberholzer


“The material was informative and the assignments were not too intensive. I could work and study and not feel stressed due to an overload of assignments. The e-mail responses from the Finance Department was excellent. I enjoyed my studies with A.O.Y.”
