ICS Real Stories: Tom | Online AAT Level 4 Review



Studying our Level 4 AAT course online has allowed our student Tom Baker the flexibility to follow his two passions - milking cows and freelance bookkeeping!


I’ve decided to share my story and to sum it up simply, I milk cows and do freelance bookkeeping while studying.

I would like to increase my services and business, but I also want to keep milking them cows, this makes distance learning perfect for me.  I start at 3am each morning and all I can say is that if I can do it, anyone can!

I decided to choose ICS Learn as my learning provider after coming across them online. My initial impression was brilliant as I found the ICS Learn website easy to navigate.

I then called up to find out a little bit more information and get some questions answered. The lady who I spoke to was very helpful answering all my questions as I had studied through a different distance learning company before and had a bad experience.

I still have all her emails, Anne-Marie, she guided me through the process then after our conversation left it to me to decide if I would like to study through ICS Learn – I liked this.

I then called back the next week with more questions and Anne-Marie helped me as much as she could.

She then guided me through the process and even helped me set up a monthly payment plan as I would have struggled to pay up front. This was fantastic and made my studying a possibility.

My experience compared to the previous company I used is exceptional, these guys are the best and make being a student a pleasure.

My plans are to move on to a higher qualification and employ apprentices who I can hopefully have study through ICS Learn as well.

The guys at ICS Learn are perfect from my first contact when I wanted to sign up right till now, whenever I have a question there is always somebody there to help.
