Is Accounting for you?
Every business needs someone to manage money. How much inventory do you have? What are your costs? revenue? profit? How do you implement an accounting system? What is a bank reconciliation? What can Excel, Outlook and Word do to help you improve efficiency? These are all questions you will answer in the 1350 hour Accounting Program.
This is a 50 week course with new intakes in September, November, January and April of every school year. The program consists of in-class learning from 8:30 until 3:20 Monday through Friday each week. Most students can expect to complete the program within 16 months, although it is possible to complete more quickly.
Our Accounting program is offered as an indiviudalized program. Although, you will always have a teacher in your classroom it is not the classroom you remember. You have 23 competencies to complete with digital resources, textbooks, teacher support and peer assistance to increase engagement and understanding. You are not sitting in a lecture listening to a presentation, or watching a powerpoint. You are given the resources to learn and develop the skills and competencies required by employers.
