Entry requirements

You don’t need any previous accounting experience or qualifications to start studying the AAT short qualification, just a willingness to learn. It’s ideal if you’re a school or university leaver, or thinking of changing career, and want to try AAT without making a commitment to the full qualification.

Months of entry

January, July

Course content

These entry-level qualifications give you the skills to become a bookkeeper, and you’ll gain an industry-recognised qualification. Plus, you’ll have the option to move onto the full AAT qualification with exemptions when you finish.

We offer three different short qualifications.

  • Foundation Certificate in Bookkeeping (Level 2, FCIB), comprises of two units (also known as subjects).
  • Foundation Award in Accounting Software (Level 2, FIAS) is made up of one unit.
  • Advanced Certificate in Bookkeeping (Level 3, ACIB) comprises of three units.

If you take and pass all three qualifications, you can become a Professional AAT Bookkeeper (AATQB).
