Therefore, the course will provide you with a fundamental understanding of both manual and computerised accounting.
For those already working in an accounting capacity, this accounting course is ideal. It will provide you with a great way to hone your skills and add worth to any business.
Equally, the AAT Certificate for Accounting Technicians course is an ideal for those seeking a hands-on introduction to accounting. The structure of the course allows you to gather the core accounting skills as you go through the course.
Once you have attained your certificate you will be in a position to further yourself towards the full AAT Accounting Qualification.
The Association of Accounting Technicians is the principal professional association for Accounting Technicians with over 100,000 members around the world. Being awarded a qualification by the AAT is guaranteed to open up doors to well paid and greatly valued accounting roles.
On completion of the course you will be in a position to sit the exam and skills test for the Association of Accounting Technicians (AAT) Level 2 Certificate in Accounting.
Once you have achieved the AAT Certificate you will be able to study for the AAT Diploma which is the next move in gaining the full AAT qualification.
The AAT is supported by the main UK chartered accountancy bodies, for whom AAT qualifications can provide exemptions on the route to becoming a chartered accountant.
The AAT Certificate training is split into 7 workbooks and is structured in such a manner that allows you to learn at your own pace. The logical order of your topics allows you to build on skills learnt in previous topics.
During your AAT Accounting course you will be required to complete 8 assignments. This will give your tutor a chance to assess your progress, offer useful feedback, and ensure you're getting the very most from your training.
At the end of the AAT Level 2 Certificate you will need to sit 3 exams and 2 computer-based projects to successfully complete the course.
It is anticipated that it will take approximately 300 hours of study to complete the AAT Certificate training.
Completion of the AAT Certificate will place you in a strong position to get jobs in specialist accounting roles.
Previous AAT students have gone into roles such as a Bookkeeper, Trainee Financial Accounts Assistant, Company Cashier, Accounts Clerk and Purchase Ledger Clerk.
