It is the training arm of the Institute of Certified Public Accountants of Singapore (ICPAS).

The Academy has trained thousands of individuals to upgrade their education and career needs through various academic and continuing professional education programs.

There are currently more than 5,000 part-time and full time students studying at the SAA, with students from Singapore, China, Vietnam, Myanmar, Indonesia, Philippines, and other Asia Pacific region.


Singapore Quality Class for PEO

In November 2005, SAA received the Singapore Quality Class (SQC) for Private Education Organisations (PEO) award.


The SAA is one of the first few organizations to be awarded the CaseTrust for Education accreditation by the Consumer Association of Singapore. The recognition affirms good business practice and commitment to customers. The CaseTrust for Education scheme has been customized specifically by CASE for the education industry in Singapore. The scheme will enhance the confidence of international students and their parents in the quality of education in Singapore.

Platinum – ACCA Approved Learning Partner

The SAA has been awarded “Platinum” approval by the ACCA, United Kingdom.

Platinum approval is the highest and most prestigious level of the programme. To be considered for Platinum approval, tuition providers must already have achieved Gold approval and in addition to the challenging performance targets that have been demonstrated to attain Gold approval, the tuition provider must also meet ACCA’s Platinum performance targets and Platinum pass-rate targets over two consecutive sets of results.

It is not the biggest, the brightest or the best that will survive, but those who adapt the quickest.
