Our Story

Accountants for Tomorrow (AFT) was founded in 2015 in the Kempton Park area of Johannesburg following the move by the Institute of Chartered Management Accountants (CIMA) to the Online Examination System. This is the stage when CIMA introduced the new, now famous Objective Tests (OTs)and online Case Study Exams under the 2015 Syllabus.

This shift from the then 2010 Syllabus to the 2015 Syllabus brought with it new challenges, the most notable ones being:

  • A move to 100% online examinations.
  • Raising of the pass mark to 70% for OTs and 53% for Case Study Papers.

Its Founder, Patrick Pfidze, was then finishing the CIMA Strategic Level. He, therefore, completed his CIMA studies under the new dispensation. He experienced the above rigours of the new order head-on. 

After attending classes for the first quarter of 2015, the founder noticed some key shortcomings in the system which was being adopted in course delivery generally and he henceforth sought to fill those gaps up himself. With that zest and drive to assist students to better navigate the new terrain, AFT was conceived. AFT has assisted numerous students in South Africa and over seas using their popular One-on-One-tailor-made course delivery methodology. 

We realise how demanding and rigorous the CIMA programme is, and we are totally committed to literally hold our students by the hand in helping them to master the subject matter and OT exam fundamentals to assure success in their exams. When you hit at what would normally seem like a concrete wall with any of the CIMA subjects, and you don’t know where else to turn, what else to do, please look no further than us! We will help you develop the tenacity and rigidity you need to succeed in these tough studies. Trust me we have successfully done so over the past decade!

At Accountants for Tomorrow, we make it our top priority that we are sufficiently prepared to address and articulate further syllabus changes and enhancements by using latest techniques and systems in the development of our subject tutors/lecturers. We also use contemporary course delivery methods in line with modern technological developments, allowing our team to drive down the subject matter to levels required by CIMA; rigorous enough to contribute meaningfully to the training and growth of the future Chartered Global Management Accountant (CGMA). We remain absolutely committed to playing a key role in driving this critical agenda, in the business landscape where the role of the finance function is undergoing rapid shifts.

Distinguishing characteristics of our programmes:

  • Tailor made to suit our students’ capabilities.
  • Comprehensive coverage of underpinning theory using our advanced theory coverage systems to gain depth in all knowledge areas.
  • Intensive question practice to hone gained skills and competences.
  • Unique exam scenario management techniques and preparation.
  • Targeted initially at those students who had found specific CIMA subjects to be particularly challenging. Of course, we have since gone beyond this target market but it remains at the core of our product offerings.
