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.

“The fanatical student support team were really supportive. Whilst doing my self-study they continued to make constant contact with me to find out how I am coping and if I had any questions or required any help. I would definitely recommend this institute to others looking to take up further studies that A.O.Y offers.”
