Take your career to the next level with an AAT Booking Course – Foundation Certificate

This distance learning AAT Bookkeeping Course (Level 2 Foundation) will introduce you to manual double entry bookkeeping skills including associated documents and processes, up to Trial Balance standard. This AAT bookkeeping course consists of the same two financial accounting units that are included in the full Foundation Certificate in Accounting. However, the latter qualification contains 3 further units to complete. This course provides an alternative starting point for those who are already working in a finance role (but without double entry bookkeeping experience). Or those who wish to work in an accounting/bookkeeping role in practice or industry.

The AAT Bookkeeping Course – Foundation Certificate is a qualification in its own right. Upon successful completion you will receive a certificate from the AAT. You can then choose to progress onto any of the AAT Advanced qualifications. Options include The Advanced Certificate in Bookkeeping or Advanced Diploma in Accounting.

N.B. If you want to progress directly onto the AAT Advanced level, but do not have any experience of using Sage, you may want to undertake the AAT Foundation Award in Accounting Software first.

We have three different course packages to suit all needs and budgets. You can choose from our:

  • Basic Package: £99 

    For those who don’t feel they need tutor support, this package includes all course materials (as well as answers to the practice papers) to allow self-study and marking of your own work. It does not include any AAT registration fees or exam/admin fees.

  • Standard Package: £359 

    For those who would like the re-assurance of having their own personal tutor, this package includes all course materials as well as uncapped tutor support. It does not include any AAT registration fees or exam/admin fees.

  • StandardPLUS Package: £664

    For those who want to combine all the related costs into one invoice. As with the Standard package, this option includes all course materials as well as uncapped tutor support, but it does include all AAT registration fees as well as exam/admin fees.
