Enrol or register with the AAT – which first?

Which of these should I do first – enrol on a course or register with the AAT?

You should enrol on an AAT course first.

The main reason for this is that when you start completing the AATs online registration form, you will be asked to select the name of your chosen Training Provider, and you obviously can’t do this until you enrol with your chosen Training Provider!

Once you have enrolled with an AAT Approved Training Provider, AAT regulations state that you MUST register as a student with the AAT within 4 weeks.

Here’s a simple flowchart to show you the steps involved once you have chosen to invest in an AAT course:


Choose your AAT course

If you are unsure, head over to our “Which course should I start with” page 

Choose an AAT Approved Training Provider

The best way of doing this is to go to the AATs “Find a Training Provider” site here

or, you can do a Google search

Enrol on an AAT course

Payment is made to your chosen training provider

Register with the AAT

Registration and payment is made via the AATs website here. If AAT registration is included in your course package, you will be given a payment code by your training provider.

AAT Exam and Admin/Invigilation fees

These fees are payable directly to an AAT Approved Assessment (exam) Venue. You can search for an assessment venue here
