    HI Admin, 4 years ago I did KATC both level one and level 2, but level 2 ,I did not pass cost accounting but passed the rest.
    can I be allowed to complete cost accounting to be awarded with certificate? or can I opt for another KASNEB course and be exempted?
    my KATC REG no-160364.

      Hi, you can opt to continue with ATD 2 and do all the 4 units as exemptions will not apply since you had not completed the course. Register before September 30 to take advantage of the waiver
