IAAP Membership ... Your Route to a Successful Career

Employers only want the very best staff on their team... IAAP membership gives you that coveted seal of approval, telling employers that you are at the very top of your profession.

Several levels of membership are open to you depending on your qualifications. So long as you have passed an IAB/IAAP qualification – or equivalent qualification recognised by the IAAP – then you are entitled to join.

The starter level of membership is an IAAP Associate Member, with IAAP Fellow being the highest and most prestigious level of all.







To achieve Fellow status – symbolising your proven expertise and experience – you must have achieved the following IAB/IAAP qualifications or equivalent exams as listed below:

  • IAAP/IAB Level 5 Accounting Qualification

Comparable qualifications include:

  • Sufficient subject passes in the professional exams of ACCA and CIMA at 2nd level
  • Relevant, recognised bachelors degree in accounting and/or finance
  • ICB (South Africa) National Diploma Financial Accounting NQF 6

On top of one of these, a further two years’ relevant experience entitles you to apply for this impressive title.







To be registered as an IAAP Member, you need one of the following qualifications as a minimum condition:

  • IAB Level 4 Diploma in Accounting to International Standards
  • IAB Level 4 Diploma in Financial Information for Managers

If you’ve studied elsewhere, we accept comparable qualifications such as these:
