– says ATC director
As countries in the world over grapple with the impacts of the financial crisis, a local tuition provider responsible for shaping hundreds of financial minds, proffered the view that more emphasis on ethics could assist in better decision making to hopefully better financial systems.
Jerry Persaud, Course Co-ordinator, Accountancy Training Centre (ATC) underscoring that ethics is vital to the accountancy profession and, by extension, the operations that fall within the range of accounts, said, “If we do not preserve, through ethical practices, what we have, as in the operations accountants oversee, we will loose the trust of the persons who use that system.” Mr. Jerry Persaud who was ACCA qualified in the United Kingdom and is now a Member of the Association of Chartered Certified Accountant, has been involved in ACCA training since 2000.
In 2007, he received an award from the ACCA for Excellence in Teaching in recognition of the services to ACCA students. ATC in 2007 also received a Learning Partnership Service award in recognition of dedicated service since 2000 to the delivery of ACCA qualifications.
ATC is among the recognised bodies in Guyana that seek to ensure that quality accountants and finance managers are trained.
The institution offers tuition in the Certified Accounting Technician (CAT) course and the Association of Certified Chartered Accountants (ACCA) course. Courses are offered at flexible times to suit all interested persons.
Persaud explained that lectures are offered on weekdays, daytime for full time students, and in the evenings for working people, while on weekends the same courses are available to accommodate out of town students. The Course Co-ordinator explained that Block Courses are also being offered to facilitate working individuals who wish to complete the courses in less time. “Quality plus time saving equals first time cost saving,” Persaud said.
ATC is also an approved ACCA computer based testing centre, this allows students the flexibility of writing examination at any time of their choice.
This, he explained, would in turn see significant contributions being made by better trained personnel towards the development of Guyana and, more importantly, Guyana’s financial system. Testimony to the institutions top quality tuition is the fact that it is the only Association of Certified Chartered Accountants (ACCA) Gold Approved Learning Partner in Guyana and is subject to assessments against widely recognised and regarded global best practices benchmarks, which provide students with the assurance of ACCA tuition and student support frameworks.
Persaud said that ATC is working towards Platinum Approval by 2010 as the institution strives to add value to the future of their students, in keeping with their watchwords “Adding value to your future.”
