The Level 2 AAT qualification is the first step of our professional accounting programme.
The course covers a range of basic accounting practices and techniques, from costing and double-entry bookkeeping to computerised accounting.
As a professional body, membership of AAT is required from the start of the course (during the first week your tutors will guide you through this process); this opens up opportunities to attend local branch activities and events.
AAT (Association of Accounting Technicians) qualifications open up huge opportunities nationally and internationally. The qualifications are recognised throughout the world; from small local enterprises to the biggest multinationals, there is a demand for qualified accounting staff.
