This is a Full Time face to face course. You will need to attend approximately 17 hours of class, over 4 days a week, for 18 weeks. As well as the in-class component, you will need to complete approximately 3.1 hours of other study per week.

IS THIS COURSE RIGHT FOR YOU?

This course offering is designed for people who:

  • This Training and Assessment Strategy has been designed to meet the needs of the new entrants to the Finance sector. This course is designed as an entry level qualification.
  • The student cohort seek to learn accounting principles and develop and apply specialised knowledge in the use of spreadsheets and accounting software such as MYOB.
  • Although the target student group are new to the industry, they typically enter the course with fundamental skills in computer operations and keyboarding including some basic administration and communication skills. This has typically be gained from secondary education or as a result of life experience in an increasingly technology-savvy world and the need to be able to interact using a range of technologies as a part of day to day life.
  • These students as new entrants are more likely to be school leavers and/or may be preparing to re-enter the workplace (return to work). Students in this target group will have no experience with accounting principles, software and the application of spreadsheets. They will require additional structured training activities to ensure adequate practice to reach the required levels of competency.
