Andri Correia is a committed consultant with a number of years of expertise in the field.
I am a Chartered Accountant, Registered Auditor, Registered Assessor and Moderator. I am a member of the Training Requirements Committee (SAICA) and the Chairman of the Regulations Sub-committee (SAICA). I have achieved my Certificate in Education, Training and Development with the University of Johannesburg and is a registered Assessor and Moderator.
After qualifying as a Chartered Accountant (SA) with one of the big four firms, I worked as an audit manager in a medium sized audit practice where was also involved in the developing and presentation of training programs. I then moved on to become the Training Manager in a BEE audit practice where, in addition to further audit experience, I was responsible for training the Johannesburg and Cape Town offices. My main focus was compiling training material and facilitating training programs for the trainees. I also performed training officer duties and assisted in the TOPP program. Thereafter I joined ProBeta as the Professional Training Manager and was responsible for developing, training and consulting to all of ProBeta’s clients. I was also responsible for quality within ProBeta and my area of expertise is the SAICA training contract realm and its related products. Thereafter I was appointed as a director and was in charge of the Probeta Assessment Tool that is an online programme which assists in assessing the SAICA trainees electronically.
I provide a number of services as follows:
Training office consulting
As I am a Registered Assessor and Moderator, this service is offered around the SAICA training office review and assessment process. I can assist you with applications to SAICA in order to register as a training office. As well as assist you in maintenance along the way. I can also assist you in preparing for a SAICA training office visit.
SAICA requires that you implement and monitor the entire assessment process. My service here includes a large volume of internal moderation and if required, transferring that knowledge to empower the training officer. Internal moderation includes inspecting the TSR/PSRs/ANAs and ensuring they are being completed properly and timeously, Suggested improvements are made and constant monitoring and feedback is provided.
This could include: implementation and training on the SAICA assessment process, guidance on completing assessments (TSRs/PSRs/ANAs), internal moderation in order to ensure you are on the right track, etc. I can also assist you in developing / implementing your own internal assessment tool.
All services are included here around the training process. This includes development of material, delivery or assistance with delivery, assistance with assessments and moderation of training sessions. This service also includes facilitating bookings with some of my associated companies.
Quality control consulting relates to quality control for both the firm and the individual partner. This is in line with ISQC 1 and ISA 220 to which all firms are required to adhere. The IRBA may or may not perform a review around these two standards, however, firms are obliged to comply. What our experts offer is implementation of these standards within the firm; bench-marking and maintenance. A detailed report will be provided upon completion, which includes an action plan for the firm and the individual partners .
My clients range from small to medium sized audit firms who are registered with SAICA and IRBA.
