QUALIFICATIONS

We offer internationally recognised ACT treasury and finance qualifications that recruiters and employers look for on candidate CVs. 

Treasury professionals' roles have taken centre stage within business and financial strategy and their relationships with the board of directors strengthened. Skilled and qualified treasury professionals are now more in demand than ever and, with the transferable skills you will learn, there has never been a better time to join the profession.

WHY CHOOSE ACT QUALIFICATIONS

The ACT supports the growth and development of high-potential and skilled treasury professionals who operate at the heart of the most successful companies and shape the financial health of their organisations. We want to inspire talented individuals to choose an exciting, and rewarding career as the treasurers of tomorrow.

SETTING YOU UP FOR A SUCCESSFUL CAREER 

We don’t just train you to pass your exams, we teach a broad range of competencies to set you up for a successful career in treasury and finance. Our treasury and cash management qualifications are internationally recognised benchmarks from the Chartered body for the profession that recruiters and employers look for on candidate CVs.

GIVE EMPLOYERS CONFIDENCE IN YOUR SKILLS

ACT qualifications are underpinned by the ACT Competency Framework. This sets the standard for superior treasury practice that drives the performance of successful organisations around the world and gives employers the confidence that you have the knowledge and skills to meet their needs.

THE ACT DIFFERENCE - THE LETTERS AFTER YOUR NAME

Qualifying with the ACT is just the start of your professional journey with us. By taking up your membership (and renewing it each year) you are eligible to use ACT designatory letters - a mark of distinction on your business card and in your professional title. It is these letters after your name that will ultimately set you apart; your membership of the chartered body for treasury shows your onward commitment and instils confidence in employers, colleagues and clients alike that you are maintaining the very highest professional standards.

HISTORICAL QUALIFICATIONS

The ACT is proud to have been delivering internationally recognised qualifications since 1982. In order to keep our professional qualifications relevant to the changing needs of treasury, risk and corporate finance professionals, it is necessary for us to periodically review and adjust content.

PROFESSIONAL PARTNERS

ACT qualifications are designed to be a pathway so that you're supported at every level of your career. There are however a number of ways for you to get recognition for what you have already learnt and achieved through your previous studies of either professional qualifications or at university. This may result in exemptions ranging from one study unit to a whole qualification. The ACT also works closely with a global network of National Treasury Associations. Together we strive to raise the profile of the profession, share best practice and ensure growth within the profession to the global benefit of all.

PARTNER ACCOUNTING BODIES

Treasury and accountancy as professions go hand-in-hand. The ACT therefore works closely with a global network of accounting bodies. Together we raise the profile of finance professionals, connect like-minded individuals and open doors for opportunities. We map our learning materials with theirs and where there is overlap, mutual exemptions apply.
