About Astranti Financial Training

Formed in 2002, we are a high quality provider of online CIMA (Chartered Institute of Management Accountants) and ACCA (Association of Chartered Certified Accountants) courses and material.

Initially specialising in tutoring students for the final CIMA Case Study exam, our offering has expanded considerably over the intervening years. Our CIMA courses and material cover all levels and subjects for the CIMA qualification. We also produce and share a great deal of free material including full course notes, tuition videos, exam technique guides and more.

In 2015 we expanded our provision to include materials and courses for ACCA students.

Each year we help thousands of students to pass their exams through our free and paid for courses and materials.

By keeping our courses and materials online only, we are able to help students that require flexible learning methods that fit around their busy day-to-day lives. Our goal is to give every single student a positive experience and to help them to pass their exams. As you will see from the various testimonials on our site we have many very satisfied customers.
