The CA Training (CAT) Programme in Transnet is a strategic intervention to train prospective Chartered Accountants to meet the skills requirements of South Africa in the Accountancy field. Transnet has been an accredited training office with the South African Institute of Chartered Accountants (SAICA) from 1997.

About the CAT Programme

The stringent requirements of SAICA demand that trainees receive extensive training in Financial Management, Management Decision-Making, Financial Accounting, Internal Audit & Corporate Governance, Auditing & Assurance and Taxation.

This also includes the professional skills like interpersonal & communication skills, intellectual skills, personal skills, and organizational & management skills.

In Transnet, the trainees will be rotated to the head office and several of its business units, e.g. Transnet National Ports Authority, Transnet Pipelines, Transnet Freight Rail, etc.

The rotation will be tailored to meet the needs of the trainee and the respective business unit, with the trainee spending at least one-third of the practical training in one business.

The training programme matches the depth of the SAICA syllabus requirements with a wide business exposure.

  • Assessments.

About Mentorship:

Trainees are assigned mentors from the CA’s within the Transnet Group. These mentors have volunteered their time, passion and dedication to the success of the programme and the trainee accountants. They provide leadership, empowerment, guidance and advice to trainee accountants on their career path.

Supervisors are the line managers who ensure that training takes place. They are responsible for the day to day training, workstation, timesheet and leave authorization, and attendance of assessment meetings. They also provide career guidance to trainees.
