Our members work in organisations in every industry and are on the boards of 78% of FTSE 100 companies. Our ACA qualification is recognised internationally and required by many finance and accountancy firms.
What we do:
- Ensure the highest professional standards.
- Promote, develop and support ICAEW Chartered Accountants.
- Share expertise to advance the accountancy and finance profession.
How is the ACA structured
Full ACA training is available in Romania, combining four essential elements:
Together, these four elements give you the expertise and added-value skills that help define a chartered accountant.
You must successfully complete all four elements to complete the ACA qualification and become an ICAEW Chartered Accountant.
There are a number of entry routes to the ACA programme and while the minimum academic entry requirement is two A levels, or the international equivalent, you don’t need a background in business or finance.
In Romania exams are held in Bucharest and all exams must be pre-booked. Details of the exam venue will be sent to you approximately two weeks before the examination date.

Are you a member of another professional body?
If you are a member of another professional accountancy body you may be able to join ICAEW through one of its reciprocal agreements.
If you want to train for the ACA in another country, you must ensure you are entitled to work in that country. It is your responsibility to understand what work visa you need and how to secure one. ICAEW cannot support you in this process, but your potential employer might be able to offer advice.
