About NSOA

Established in 1995, NSOA offers a series of training workshops dealing with practical auditing skills, professional skills required of trainee accountants, and SAICA residual skills. NSOA also provides a variety of academic support interventions directed at distance learning CTA Level 1 and CTA Level 2 students.

Operating out of Durban and Cape Town, NSOA is none-the-less able to offer training to firms anywhere in Southern Africa and regularly hosts training courses and academic support interventions in Johannesburg, Pretoria, East London & Port Elizabeth as well as other centres across South Africa.

In 2017, NSOA entered into a partnership with Theana Deysel to facilitate NSOA training courses in Pretoria and Johannesburg.  The 3 of us work closely to develop and facilitate material of the highest standards possible.

Our Durban office makes use of the conference facilities at the Westville Country Club to host its sessions while our Cape Town office makes use of conference facilities at the Oakdale Club in Bellville.  Training courses in Pretoria are hosted at the Waterkloof Guesthouse.


We are currently a Level 4 contributor (classified as an Exempt Micro Enterprise) to BBBEE and you may view our BEE certificate at this link NSOA BEE Certificate.
