Applied Knowledge

Develop skills to prepare you for a successful career as a professional accountant

An exceptional introduction to the world of finance and accounting, the Applied Knowledge exams provide you with a broad understanding of essential accounting techniques.

Always updated, always relevant

We significantly revised the syllabus and exams for the Applied Knowledge exams in 2014 as part of our annual review process to keep the content relevant and the exams have been regularly updated since. These annual updates will continue, although there are no major changes planned beyond the name change to Applied Knowledge in September 2018.
