You must successfully pass all three tests in order to gain the full qualification, but if you prefer to study without assessment, we can issue you with a certificate proving your completion of the course.
You have a year to complete this course. This means you will receive 12 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 distance learning course can be studied from home or at work. You will receive all course materials and unlimited tutor support by email.
With this bookkeeping course you have two options:
1) The course can be studied for personal interest and development. On successful completion of the tutor-marked assessments, we can provide you with a certificate of achievement proving your success.
2) You can choose to take the ICB examinations online from home. On successful completion of these examinations, you will receive an official ICB Level 2 Certificate in Bookkeeping.
The Institute of Certified Bookkeepers (ICB) is the world's largest bookkeeping body in the world. The ICB was started in the UK in 1996 and now has over 150,000 members. The ICB aims to provide relevant and academically recognised qualifications, as well as promote and maintain the standards of bookkeeping as a profession.
No prior bookkeeping knowledge is needed to enrol onto this course, but you should have basic numerical skills. You will need to download the software from the link we provide, so you'll need to have an internet connection and storage on your computer.
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. Also, the software is provided as a download so you will need to ensure that you are able to download it.
* Available only with the coursde pack option
You have the option of sitting the ICB examination from home. However, if you choose not to take the exam, once you have completed your tutor marked assessments 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.
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.
