Becoming a bookkeeper is a long and winding road that is not to be attempted lightly.

Step Three: Tailor your CV for your career
Anyone can choose to become an accountant or bookkeeper. However, there are some specifications and pre-requisites that you will need to fulfil before being able to start.
Most bookkeeping courses will require:
- Basic to advanced numeracy skills (depending on the level)
