The ACCPA Certification Exam is the only professional certification program designed specifically with African professionals in mind. The ACCPA Certification Exam is geared towards corporate professionals at African institutions. Unlike other professional certification programs, every example in the ACCPA Candidate Guidebook is from a country in Africa. ACCPA has collaborated with professional experts across Africa in different fields to provide specific examples to cases that apply to African countries. While many corporate certification programs place emphasis on professionals in North America and Western European countries, the ACCPA certification program places emphasis on African professionals.
