In order to facilitate Atcor in providing the above services, Atcor has developed the Atcor Check Website. The Website is a tool to communicate relevant information and updates to trainees and other role players involved in the SAICA Training Programme. The Check Website includes a re-accreditation section, that allows Atcor to assist Training Offices in ensuring compliance with the SAICA re-accreditation criteria. Access to the website is granted to the SAICA reviewers to facilitate their review of the Training Office and ensure that they are able to conduct SAICA training office visits fully prepared and informed.

Our SAICA Training Programme clients include commerce & industry, auditing & assurance and public sector training offices. Out of respect for our clients and their branding requirements, we do not list our clients on this website. Should you wish to contact our clients for references, we will assist in connecting you with them once we have obtained their permission to do so.
