After completing all the examinations including the Talent Capstone, you will be named a “Passed Finalist” (PF). You will be awarded with your PF certificate at a graceful awarding ceremony held at BMICH. Becoming a Passed Finalist is not the end of your journey but the starting point of your life long relationship as a Member of the Institute.
With a view to continuing the relationship of AAT Sri Lanka Passed Finalists with the Association until they eventually obtain professional membership (MAAT) on completion of Practical Training etc., the Governing Council of AAT Sri Lanka has established "AAT Sri Lanka Achievers' Network" - the network of Passed Finalists.
There is a gap at present from the time a Student passes the Final Examination and obtains professional membership. Neither the student nor the Institute benefits much by the Students' "achievement". AAT Sri Lanka therefore wishes to recognize the "Achiever' and opens up avenues for his career development.
This is to inform you of this 'Network' and to invite you to the AAT Sri Lanka family fold so that we grow together to great heights.
Some of the benefits to members of the Achievers' Network;
