ACCA Foundation Diploma (AFD)

If you are looking for a rewarding career in finance and accountancy then the ACCA Foundation Diploma (AFD) is designed just for you.

ACCA Foundations Diploma comprises a number of awards from the Association of Certified Chartered Accountants (ACCA). They teach you the fundamentals of accountancy, including recording financial transactions, management, business costs, and taxation.
