    qualify or be qualified?

    Hi,

    Question:

    Should I say "qualify" or "be qualified" in my sentence?

    Sentence:

    I want to qualify / be qualified as an accountant.

    My opinion:

    According to my dictionary, "qualify" should be used. However, someone suggests that "be qualified" should be used.

    Thanks

    They're both right. "qualify" sounds more natural.
