Wow, what can I say!!! I've never been one for computers, so was very dubious about doing a course online, but with working full time and being a mum I couldn’t dedicate the time to go to a College. This was the only option for me to succeed with my career path. What a great decision I made with the help of the advisors! I actually only wanted to do the Bookkeeping but with the advisors knowledge and understanding with what I wanted to do with my life, I opted to do the AAT Level 2 and I am so glad I did! Any queries I had relating to the course the advisors answered straight away. The course material was easy to learn and I would like to thank e-Careers in helping me make my dreams possible. I can't wait to book onto AAT Level 3.
The AAT Level 2 Certificate in Accounting course was really good and I'm enjoying the studying. e-Careers have excellent Customer Service too.
I am studying the AAT Level 2 Foundation Certificate & Level 3 Advanced Diploma, and have just passed Unit 1 (Level 2) in just over a month! I work full-time, so wanted an alternative to university. My tutor, Mike at e-Careers is great, he gets back to me within 24 hours with the answers to my questions and other additional support. If I have any other questions or queries, I can ring up my e-Careers Courser Advisor, Marshal and he will be there, giving great advice and help, and he is very encouraging! I felt the need to ring him up about passing Unit 1 and he was just as pleased and excited as myself and my family were for me! As long as you don’t be lazy or have the ‘I can’t do it’ attitude you will get far! You are your own motivator nobody else.
I have just enrolled for an AAT course and my experience so far has been really great. When I called to enquire I spoke with Luke, he was very helpful, friendly and professional, helped me set up my account, make the payment and answered my many questions perfectly. The account was activated the next morning and my books arrived in just 2 days. The online platform is well organised and detailed. I highly recommend e-Careers.
Excellent customer service and support from the start. Thanks to all involved with the process at e-Careers, especially Marshall and Martin for making this happen.
The staff at e-Careers were very helpful when I contacted them recently about commencing study for AAT Level 3. Throughout the past year whilst I have studied AAT Level 2, e-Careers has been supportive whenever I contact them, exceeding my expectations. I am very satisfied.

This helps you think in a way that will enable you to approach each question correctly, increasing the likelihood of you passing.
Your personal AAT tutor will run your live online classes so that you get the benefits of learning in a college class without leaving your home. Live online classes cover revision sessions and practice papers on the units you need to pass your exams, including Bookkeeping Transactions, and Bookkeeping Controls.
