Its range of qualifications is open to all regardless of previous qualifications or age, and includes the AAT Accounting Qualification, as well as bookkeeping and other finance qualifications.
Only AAT Approved training providers are allowed to deliver AAT qualifications and courses and they must first go through a rigorous verification process.
