Association of Accounting Technicians courses are set at three levels:
Advanced courses are the mid-level accounting and bookkeeping qualifications awarded by AAT. The courses are aimed at individuals looking to advance their existing knowledge of accounting or bookkeeping and prepare professionals for the next step in their career. These intermediate courses are essential on the pathway to becoming a fully-qualified accountant.
They'll give you the comprehensive skills and knowledge you need to take on mid-level roles, and will ensure you're well-prepared to advance in your career.
If you're studying bookkeeping, Advanced is the highest level of AAT study. If you're studying accounting, you'll be able to move on to Professional level.
*Based on 1,280 exam sittings and 1,215 passes by ICS Learn AAT students between July 2015 and June 2016.
With few entry requirements, AAT Advanced qualifications are suitable for:
Advanced courses sit on the Qualifications and Credit Framework at Level 3, or Level 6 in the Scottish system. This means that they’re roughly equal in difficulty to A Levels.
If you're unsure, give our course advisors a call - they'll run through your professional experience and education to make sure you’re on the right path.
You can also take the AAT Skillcheck, a 30-minute multiple choice test that will gauge your accounting knowledge and tell you which level will suit you best.
