CertCFF was very useful as it provided practical examples which we are faced with every day at work. I enrolled on an ACT qualification when I moved into my current role as I wanted to be able to add further value to the team and the company. The ACT course is a solid, well recognised and powerful qualification that will differentiate you from being an accountant, to a well-rounded finance business professional. ACT qualifications provide a holistic view of an organisation and the importance of cash, liquidity, control and risk. It has made me think much more strategically and look at a macro view of the business and all the decisions and issues it faces in order to survive and grow.
