Overview

The Accounting Technicians Ireland qualification is divided into two parts, each of which is a qualification in its own right.

  • Certificate for Accounting Technicians
  • Diploma for Accounting Technicians

Each part is a separate qualification and successful completion of both years leads to the full Diploma for Accounting Technicians.

Both awards are designed to address the strong market need in all Irish sectors for qualified Accounting Technician professionals, and also to support the continuing development of those already employed.
