FCCA status is the highest achievement awarded to ACCA members after 5 years of continuous membership and Continuous Professional Development (CPD) compliance, FCCA status represents a member's extensive experience and long-term commitment to professionalism and ethics.
Once you’ve become a member, fellowship is the next major milestone in your professional journey with ACCA.
After five-years' continuous membership and compliance with our CPD policy, you’ll earn the right to use the ‘FCCA’ designation and enjoy the additional prestige of being a Fellow.
Fellowship is a significant milestone and achieving it demonstrates to employers that you have extensive experience and have made a long-term commitment to professionalism and ethics.
What are the requirements?
You’ll need to be an ACCA member for 5 consecutive years - by paying your annual subscriptions and submitting your CPD declarations to confirm that you have met the CPD requirements each year.
How do I become a Fellow?
There’s no formal application process - we’ll follow your progress and write to you, congratulating you on achieving FCCA status once you’ve met the requirements.
FCCA certificates are then sealed and issued following a special meeting of Council – normally held monthly. Please let us know if you do not receive your certificate within 8 weeks of receiving your FCCA status confirmation message because there may be a charge to resend after 6 months have passed.
