ICAS (Institute of Chartered Accountants of Scotland) is a professional body of more than 20,000 world-class business men and women who work in the UK and in more than 100 countries around the world. All members have achieved the internationally recognised and respected CA qualification (Chartered Accountant).
In 2009 ICAS wanted a more consistent training solution for their CA qualification, which allowed students to access training from one centralised portal at times which suited them. eCom worked with ICAS to understand the learning requirements for the CA training and agree the right blend of online learning and classroom teaching. CABLE (CA Blended Learning Environment) was developed, using eCom’s eNetEnterprise® academy platform. ICAS and employers can access management reports to assess learning impact and employers can easily track employees’ training history. Students are able to collaborate with their peers and tutors using the communication tools and forums.
In 2014 ICAS decided to move to online examination for the CA qualification. eCom developed the online examination solution using the eNetAssess™ platform. The system delivers a range of question types including simulated financial exercises. Examinations are automatically marked by the system resulting in real-time information.
