AAT Level 2 Foundation and Level 3 Accounting Combined

AAT Level 2 Foundation Certificate in Accounting

This Foundation Certificate in Accounting (AAT Level 2) distance learning or home study course represents the typical starting point for those who wish to work in an accounting role in practice or industry. 

It’s also an excellent qualification for those who are already working in finance but would like recognition of their skills.

The course will introduce you to manual double entry bookkeeping skills including associated documents and processes, up to Trial Balance standard. It also includes key units (modules) on Cost Accounting and Computerised Accounting. Little or no prior knowledge or experience is required, although good basic numeracy and literacy skills are needed.

Following successful completion of the AAT Level 2 Foundation Certificate, you can progress onto any of the AAT Advanced qualifications.

AAT Level 3 Advanced Diploma in Accounting

This AAT Level 3 Advanced Diploma in Accounting distance learning home study course takes you up to the completion of a set of final accounts for sole traders or partnerships. It is therefore very relevant for those who want to supply bookkeeping services. It is also a relevant qualification for those who simply want to progress their training to the next stage. The course also covers Indirect Tax (VAT), Costing, Spreadsheets and Ethics.

You can undertake the Advanced Level following completion of the Foundation Level (Certificate in Bookkeeping or Accounting). You can also undertake the Advanced Level course if you have relevant prior qualifications or experience.

Following successful completion of the AAT Level 3 Advanced Diploma in Accounting, you can apply to become an AAT Licensed Bookkeeper and gain the designatory letters AATQB. You can also progress onto the AAT Professional Diploma in Accounting qualification.
