Foundations in Accountancy (FIA) is a suite of awards offered by the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (the ACCA).
The suite of awards within the FIA consists of certificates, diplomas and a Certified Accounting Technician (CAT) qualification.
These awards focus on the core skills of financial accounting and management accounting together with the wider role of the accountant in business.
