Welcome to the Tanzania Institute of Accountancy . TIA is one of the Technical Institutions in Tanzania, providing courses in accountancy and business related fields that are recognized by NACTE, the National Council for technical Education. The institute is offering – in its head quarter Dar es Salaam and in Mbeya, Mtwara, and Singida – certificate, diploma and degree courses for the public and private sector. Besides these courses, TIA is offering special programmes for central and local government employees, review classes and consultancy services. TIA has recently adopted the Competence-Based Education and Training (CBET) approach as the way forward, the way to attain the quality of education and training that meets the demands of a dynamic and permanently changing labour market.

Currently, with the ongoing globalisation of trade and the increased international competitiveness, it is particularly important that the Tanzanian workforce – at all levels – achieves a high level of competency. I hope that this website will show you clearly in what way TIA wants to contribute to the development of Tanzania by raising the quality of its staff and its training programmes.
