ACCA - The global body for professional accountants

You are eligible to become an ACCA member as soon as you have:

  • completed your exams
  • completed the Professional Ethics module
  • achieved 36 months’ practical experience in a relevant role, having recorded the detail through the ‘work experience’ section of your online My Experience record

and either:

  • answered the challenge questions for 13 performance objectives and had these reviewed and signed off by your workplace mentor

or

  • can confirm your employer has granted you a Performance Objective exemption because they are an ACCA Approved Employer - trainee development stream, holding gold or platinum level.

So make sure that you:

  • Regularly update your PER progress using My Experience. If you don’t you’ll miss the opportunity to receive an invite to become a member quickly and smoothly.
  • Keep copies of any documentation relating to your employment and relevant work experience; this may be required for PER audit purposes.
  • Complete the Professional Ethics module.
  • Keep your contact details up-to-date, particularly your email address, to ensure you receive your invitation to become an ACCA member.
