What will I learn?

The qualification covers a range of complex bookkeeping tasks. You will learn and master financial processes, including bookkeeping principles and concepts.

On successful completion of this course, you will be awarded an AAT Level 3 Advanced Certificate in Bookkeeping. This internationally recognised AAT (Association of Accounting Technicians) qualification enables those working in accounting or those who looking to pursue bookkeeping as a career to gain knowledge, practical experience and the all-important certification often sought by employers.

All learning will take place via an online platform, with additional resources available on the AAT website.  

Units of Study
The Level 3 course covers a range of key areas, including:

  • Financial accounting: Preparing financial statements

Entry requirements (minimum)

You must have a sound knowledge of bookkeeping principles to undertake the AAT Level 3 programme. Achievement of an AAT Level 2 Foundation Certificate in Bookkeeping is advantageous but not essential.

Jobs and further study

Students completing the AAT Advanced Certificate in Bookkeeping may wish to go on and complete the full AAT Advanced Diploma in Accounting. If you do choose to continue your studies in this way, then your achievements in the Bookkeeping qualification are carried over to the longer Accounting qualification.

If you successfully complete this qualification, you can apply for AAT associate bookkeeping membership (AATQB).

The skills and knowledge you will gain throughout this qualification will qualify you for roles including Finance Officer, Assistant Accountant and Bookkeeper. You will also be eligible for AAT Bookkeeper (AATQB) status, giving you the option to work as a freelance bookkeeper.
