PwC's Academy Vietnam has launched a training service to prepare students thoroughly for ACCA exams by fostering finance and accounting skills and providing expertise in organizational management and strategy.

The Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) is one of the largest and fastest-growing international accounting bodies.

According to the Accounting and Auditing Supervisory Department, Ministry of Finance, in 2022, Vietnam had 2,288 certified public accountants, and 446 of them had international certificates, which is nearly double the number recorded in 2015.

However, the survey results also indicate that the current number of qualified auditors does not meet the requirements of the independent audit profession, both in terms of quantity and quality.

This highlights the need for Vietnamese accountants to continuously upskill to adapt to international standards and for employers to promote upskilling to drive growth and attract top talents.

With its ACCA training service, PwC’s Academy Vietnam provides learners with a blended learning approach that allows flexibility and personalized learning.

Learners will be fully equipped with comprehensive and interactive materials on its exclusive award-winning eLearning platform, including full course notes, recorded lectures, continuous assessment, course checkpoints, and integrated computer-based mock tests.

Besides being a part of the extensive PwC's Academy network, which includes ACCA Platinum and Gold Approved Learning Partners, PwC’s Academy Vietnam also brings a local team of specialist tutors with practical experience and industry knowledge to support students in revision sessions.

With the launch of the ACCA training service, it has now established a complete learning and career development cycle for learners.

While this service focuses on technical skills, PwC's Online Academy eLearning service is an integral part of fostering digital and professional skills.

In addition, the previously introduced Fast Track Internship Program in December 2022 reflects the strong commitment of PwC Vietnam and ACCA Vietnam to boost career development for ACCA learners.

Ren Varma, Head of Mainland Southeast Asia, ACCA, congratulates PwC's Academy Vietnam on the exciting launch of their ACCA training service.

As a long-standing partner who has been working with PwC’s Academy in various markets, they are thrilled to witness this significant step towards providing Vietnamese learners with high-quality training services.

According to Varrma, ACCA's vision aligns seamlessly with PwC’s Academy’s pursuit of excellence. Together, they aim to equip ACCA aspirants with the skills and knowledge necessary to thrive in today’s competitive business landscape.

Dinh Thi Quynh Van, Chairwoman, PwC Vietnam, also replies that PwC's network of firms has proudly worked with ACCA as a longstanding partner internationally.

With its newly launched ACCA training service in Vietnam, PwC’s Academy hopes to expand their partnership with ACCA and support Vietnamese learners with our network of experts and high-quality training.

This new program aims to address the upskilling needs of the academy's internal workforce and goes beyond, assisting other organizations in bridging upskilling gaps and preparing for the future of work.

"There is a growing demand for finance professionals to acquire high standards and ethics, so we believe in the importance of driving sustainable economic growth by bridging upskilling gaps for Vietnamese to meet the international workforce needs," she said.
