Very quick and clean process, absolutely perfect with notifying me on my account and course activation.
e-Careers advisor James was very helpful and patient with me, helping me to choose the best AAT course for me. He went through all my options and made sure I understood exactly what opportunities each one would lead too. I would definitely recommend this company and the free laptop with the AAT course was a real bonus! 5 star service and I am really enjoying my course.
Excellent customer service and support from the start, thank you all involved with e-Careers and a warm thank you to Marshall and Martin for making this happen. Many thanks once again.
I have just enrolled for AAT 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. The account was activated the next morning and my books arrived in just 2 days. The online platform is well organised and detailed.
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.

Earning your AAT Level 3 qualification will give you AATQB status, letting you use the designatory letters AATQB after your name.

You can also now legally submit final balances for any sized organisation.

Employers of all sizes see the value of employees with AAT qualifications and large companies including KPMG, train their staff with AAT qualifications because it demonstrates they can apply their studies to a real-world scenario.

Exam Prep Sessions - To help students have the best chances of passing their exams, we have developed a series of regular exam preparation sessions. Before the session, students complete a pre-assigned mock paper in advance, and your tutor will run through the paper and correct answers, informing you of what the AAT expect you to write and why. This helps you think in a way that will enable you to approach each question correctly, increasing the likelihood of you passing.
Live Online Classes - Your tutor will take you through a specific topic or module in an online classroom session.
*Sage software is only compatible with a Windows PC or Laptop. This software is not compatible with Apple Mac’s (unless Boot Camp is installed).
There are five exams in total: 4 computer-based exams, which will need to be taken at your local AAT test centre, and 1 Synoptic Assessment.
The exam format includes multiple-choice questions, selecting answers from a drop-down menu and typing numbers and text into form fields. The “Spreadsheets” section will use Microsoft Excel software. You should let your assessment centre know which version of Excel you are most familiar with.
When you are ready to take your assessments, you have two options:
Online Assessments directly with e-Careers - To take your assessment from the comfort of your home, please contact e-Careers Customer Service to book and pay for your assessment. Not available on the Synoptic Assessment.
Test Centre Assessments - You can still choose to sit your exam at a suitable AAT approved assessment venue. We can help find the closest one to you. Exam fees vary from centre to centre.
Exam fees are not included in the course cost.
The Synoptic Assessments will test your overall understanding of a range of subjects. There are specific times of the year when you will be able to take your Synoptic Assessments, called the ‘Synoptic Windows’. For Advanced Level, the Synoptic Window is available 6 times per year (usually every other month).
