What does the AAT Foundation Certificate Level 2, Advanced Diploma in Accounting Level 3 & Professional Diploma in Accounting Level 4 package cover?

This full AAT Accounting package helps you to develop an understanding the essential accounting foundational building blocks, right through to advanced topics, preparing you to undertake a job role at almost any level.   

It’s best to complete the mandatory modules first and then decide which optional modules you want to study, as your decision may change by the time you complete the mandatory modules. Once you’re sure what optional modules you want to study, you can contact us, and we’ll send out the relevant textbooks.

One other thing to keep in mind is that if you’re considering specialising in tax and time is approaching the end of the year, it’s best to wait until the new year, to ensure you have the most up-to-date books, as tax changes year-on-year.
