Is the AAT Level 3 Advanced Certificate in Bookkeeping right for me?

The AAT Level 3 Advanced Certificate in Bookkeeping is perfect for Bookkeepers who already hold a level 2 bookkeeping qualification. You must hold a level of knowledge equivalent to AAT’s Level 2 Foundation Certificate in Bookkeeping, but we recommend staying within the AAT path to maintain consistency in how you learn the practical and technical skills on offer. If you have extensive bookkeeping experience but have no qualifications, we recommend going for Level 2, then progressing to Level 3. Both the AAT Level 2 & Level 3 Bookkeeping courses are available in a package for anyone who is looking for a fast-track route to becoming a credible, independent Bookkeeper.

How will the AAT Level 3 Advanced Certificate in Bookkeeping advance my career?

Once you have successfully passed the AAT Level 3 Advanced Certificate in Bookkeeping, you will be eligible for AAT Bookkeeper (AATQB) status, which will give you the opportunity to achieve Associate bookkeeping membership with AAT and the designatory AATQB letters.
