Who will issue your certificate?

Once you’ve completed your study with Speciss College and passed the ABMA Computer Engineering Certificate exams, you’ll be awarded an ABMA Computer Engineering Certificate. Thereafter you can move on to the Diploma and Advanced Diploma levels. These are the three steps you need for a successful career in IT!

The Association of Business Managers and Administrators (ABMA) is an internationally recognised tertiary qualifications body which provides a wide range of programmes.

ABMA courses are designed to ensure that their programmes are work related and relevant to the needs of industry.

ABMA qualifications are recognised by many international universities and in certain cases can lead to exemptions from the first two years of a Bachelors Degree.

If you are looking for a work related qualification that will position you favourably in the job market, or a qualification that can provide you with degree exemptions, then enrol with ABMA through Speciss College.


Entry requirements for this course

To join the ABMA family and kick-start your career, you should be at least 16 years of age with four 'O' Levels at Grade C or better, including English and Maths.  Alternatively you can have an ABMA Foundation Award.

If you’re over 21 years of age, and don’t have any of the above qualifications, you must have relevant proven employment history for a minimum of two years.

You may be required to provide a reference letter from employers and to complete an ABMA Foundation Award.
