About us

30+ years of experience makes all the difference

The Comptrollership Training Centre is owned and operated by ACFO-ACAF, North America’s largest union exclusively representing financial professionals. That experience makes all the difference.

We know the community

We’ve represented federal public service finance professionals for more than 30 years and our courses are tailored to you. We use real-life examples that make our courses relevant.

below market cost

This is a service for our members, not a profit centre. We operate our courses on a cost-recovery basis. We put a priority on being the best value for your training dollar.
