Students may register at any time and have 24 months to complete their studies. This is more than enough time, so that you can work at your own pace. This is a flexible course which has been designed to fit easily around your lifestyle. You will receive 24 months tutor support. Whilst studying your course you will also be asked to install the Sage software (your materials will tell you when to do this). From the point when you have installed the software you will have 6 months to complete the computerised section.
The course is designed for study by distance learning at home or at work, with full tutor support by email.
With this bookkeeping course you have two options:
1) The course can be studied for personal interest and development without assessment and we can provide you with a completion certificate.
2) You can opt to take the examinations online from home. On successful completion of the examinations, you will gain two bookkeeping Certificates: the ICB Level 2 Certificate in Bookkeeping and the ICB Level 3 Certificate in Bookkeeping and Accounts. Passing these will allow you to apply to become a full ICB member, proving your bookkeeping skills to employers or customers.
No prior bookkeeping knowledge is needed to enrol onto this course, but you should have basic numerical skills. The SAGE software will be available via a download link, so you will need a computer with internet access and storage.
The Sage 50 Accounts software will only work on computers which run Windows 7 or higher, therefore Sage will not run on Windows XP. Sage software will not run on any Apple Macintosh computer. Please email us for full specification and compatibility details. The SAGE software will be available via a download link, so you will need a computer with internet access and storage.
You have the option of sitting the ICB examinations. However, if you choose not to take the exam, we can issue you with a certificate proving that you have completed the course.
If you decide to sit the ICB exams, there will be a charge payable to the ICB and your chosen assessment centre.
We offer a course replacement service which ensures that, if your course pack is lost or damaged throughout the duration of your studies, we can issue you with a new set of materials for a one-time additional fee. This is available by calling our Student Support team on 03300 563100.
