Introduction
The world of commerce is always in a state of expansion and development, which is why experts in fields such as
business, economics and finance are always in demand. It is also the reason why Unisa’s College of Economic and
Management Sciences (CEMS) has developed a wide-range of short learning programmes (SLPs), more colloquially
known as “short courses”, which are specifically designed to be current and match the needs
and expectations of our students.
Our Centre for Business Management, for example, offers an extensive and diverse range of courses. These
courses provide our students with skills in entrepreneurship and PR for those looking to make it on their own.
For practitioners it provides courses in areas such as advanced marketing, retail buying and labour relations
management. And for business owners, programmes such as project and business management are worth their
weight in gold. Advanced courses are also available for graduates – through Unisa’s SBL – providing students with
skills such as advanced project management and executive development.
Accountancy professionals are another much-needed commodity both locally and abroad, and the Centre for
Accounting Studies provides numerous courses in subjects such as bookkeeping, payroll, auditing and taxation.
Likewise, our Centre for Industrial and Organisational Psychology provides an excellent resource for students whose
interests lie in fields such as workforce diversity, client service excellence and industrial psychology.
There are also scores of short courses in fields such as public administration, transport and tourism,
and manufacturing.
We are proud to present our short learning programmes to you and we welcome you as partners in addressing
issues in society as students of our short learning programmes.

     Duration: 5 days                                             NQF Level 5
     Purpose:
     The primary objective of the course is to prepare students to meet the accounting demands of the information
     age. The course will provide students with a thorough understanding of essential accounting concepts, and teach
     them to apply these concepts in a computerised accounting environment. It will further provide students with
     an understanding of accounting applications commonly used in business, eg general ledger, accounts receivable,
     accounts payable and inventories
     Target group:
     Persons who are writing the ICB examinations and aspire to become Certified Junior or Senior Bookkeepers or
     Technical Financial Accountants and perform basic accounting work.

     Admission requirements:
     Students who want to register for this course should have successfully completed the accounting paper at senior
     certificate level. Those are not in possession of such qualification will be considered for admission based on their
     experience. Students must also have access to a personal computer running Microsoft Windows. The Course in
     Computerised Bookkeeping assumes no previous experience with computers and was developed with continuity,
     simplicity, and practicality in mind.
     Registration periods:
     The course commences in April 2012. The closing date for registration is 31 March 2012.

     Module: Essential Accounting Concepts (CICB01U) - non-credit bearing
     Content:
     The first study guide covers essential accounting concepts. The objective is to provide students with a
     fundamental understanding of accounting concepts and principles normally encountered in an accounting
     business environment. During this section of the course, students are also taught how to apply these concepts
     and principles in a manual accounting environment.

     Module: Computerised Accounting Concepts (CICB02V) - non-credit bearing
     Content:
     The second study guide covers, step-by-step, the application of the concepts and principles which were
     covered in the first study guide. Pastel accounting software will be used as the vehicle to teach the software
     application skills. This study guide concentrates on general accounting concepts and its application in daily
     practical situations. The approach is to show and not to simply tell. Numerous, carefully designed examples
     will be used to guide students to quickly master the software and to become productive users thereof.
     Examples are based on business problems which students could reasonably be expected to encounter. The
     approach is user-oriented and demonstrates how technology can be used to solve everyday business problems.

     components and methods and techniques for the improvement of quality and overall operational performance.

     with or who is interested in quality management (total quality management), similarly all people (e.g. supervisors)

     junior quality managers, assistant quality managers, operations managers, but even senior managers who need to
     gain a basic understanding of and appreciation for the dynamic nature, unique body of knowledge and potential
     advantages which may be gained by TQM

     Purpose:
     This short learning programme was specifically developed by the Insurance Institute of South Africa (IISA) to serve
     the educational needs of the retirement fund management industry in South Africa and to provide that sector of the
     insurance industry with a higher education qualification, to both satisfy educational and regulatory needs.

     sector. As such, students who have completed this short learning programme will continue with a further NQF level 5
     programme in retirement fund management to complete their studies at this level. The programme also assists with
     the improvement of the knowledge and competence of financial advisors and intermediaries that is required in terms

     Target group:
     The typical students who will enroll for this short learning programme will either be employed by life insurance
     companies, insurance brokers, independent (Privately Administered) Retirement Funds, fund administrators or
     elsewhere in the retirement fund industry. Students not presently employed in the retirement fund industry, but who
     may want to obtain the credits attached to the short learning programme in order to obtain employment in the
     insurance industry will also be allowed to enroll.

     The programme improves the employability of students in the sense that the successful completion of the
     programme enables them to become retirement fund practitioners with a good introductory understanding of the
     legal framework within which retirement funds are conducted, retirement fund administration; benefit design, fund
     financing and investment practices and instruments.

     In addition, all intermediaries in the retail pensions industry who offer ‘advice’ on products need to be in possession of
