About Ducharme Training Institute

Our aim is to help you put finance theory into practice

Ducharme Training Institute, which forms part of the Ducharme Group of companies, provides specialist public sector training and capacity building support within financial management, accounting and governance, whereby the focus is to improve the ability and capacity of the public sector entities to comply with all relevant finance legislation and best practice requirements. Our programme support ranges from update sessions (half-day), to core programmes (3 - 5 days) and extensive training (2 - 3 weeks).

Expert trainers

Since 2003, we assisted more than 100 different entities with tailored training and capacity building support. We have an excellent understanding of various accounting frameworks (GRAP, IPSAS, Modified Cash, IFRS) as well as Public Sector Financial Management. Over the years we have contributed to the implementation of various financial reform initiatives and, on our programmes, are able to share practically applied knowledge and insight into the implementation challenges entities may encounter.

Practical approach

We have presented programmes to entities (client direct approach) and on behalf of entities to specific parties (e.g. on behalf of South African National Treasury, the Auditor General of SA (AGSA), The South African Institute of Chartered Accountants (SAICA), the South African Institute of Government Auditors (SAIGA), The Institute of Municipal Finance Officers (IMFO), Gauteng Provincial Treasury, Mpumalanga Provincial Treasury, Free State Provincial Treasury).

Theory as foundation

Our learning approach is that the theory provides the building blocks upon which we add the practical discussions for the day-to-day implementation thereof. We are also actively involved to ensure that this foundation is continuously improved. Apart from our content development and research, we also sit on the Accounting Standards Board’s Public Sector Technical Forum which actively meet and discuss the latest Public Sector Accounting Implementation issues.

Tailor made training

Apart from our e-learning support, we are also able to assist with tailored in-house training sessions and hosting of open courses. The open courses run throughout the year at various venues, allowing learners to link up face-to-face with the facilitators. We can even combine in-house sessions with e-learning modules, to allow for a tailored and blended learning experience.

Structured Learning

Our e-learning follows a hands-on approach, where a set time is provided for course completion. This is to guide delegates to progress in their learning, instead of a continuous postponement thereof.

Practical Assistance

We can also provide entities with practical assistance in a whole host of other areas such as:

  • Financial accounting, management and reporting
  • Budgeting
  • Governance
  • Asset Management
  • Revenue Enhancement
  • MSCOA implementation
  • And more

Ducharme Consulting also have a range of IT solutions to assist management in public sector and local government sector entities. Click here to find out how we can assist you: www.ducharmeconsulting.co.za
