a) ERF and SCOA for Budget Managers and Non-Financial officials
b) ERF and SCOA for Practitioners
c) ERF and SCOA for Practitioners Advanced
The practitioners advanced programme is only scheduled for roll out in the 2011/12 financial year (more details and a brochure will be communicated at a later stage).
