PAAC was founded on the firm belief that all students deserve equal opportunity to quality education.
In 1982, we started by conducting accountancy training programmes for students preparing for the Malaysian Institute of Certified Public Accountants (formerly known as MACPA) examinations. We have since contributed substantially to the training and success of many CPAs.
This success paved the way for us to expand into other professional courses such as the training of Chartered Accountants (ICAEW). PAAC is the FIRST educational institution in Malaysia to offer courses that will enable students to acquire this prestigious accountancy qualification. Since 1998, over 50 PAAC students have graduated with the Chartered Accountancy (ACA) qualification.
In 1997, PAAC introduced the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) programme. PAAC also introduced the Certified Accounting Technician (CAT) programme under the ACCA in January 2001.
In 2003, PAAC will be introducing its Diploma in Accountancy as well as courses related to ICT under the Human Resource Development Fund scheme.
