When you complete the Certificate IV in Accounting and Bookkeeping you'll have the foundations for a career in accounting, making you ideal for sub-accountant or bookkeeping roles or as a registered BAS agent (with additional training and experience).

You will gain skills and knowledge in preparing financial reports, accounts and ledgers, operational budgets, business activity statements, accounting principles and industry practice.

Full-time attendance is equivalent to four days a week.

With industry and government forecasting strong demand for accountants in the coming years, you'll be ready for recruiting.

Completion of the Certificate IV in Accounting and Bookkeeping opens up a range of further study options, including specialist diplomas, and it may assist in entry to university.

Entrance requirements for traineeships

You must be employed in a training contract by an appropriate organisation to study an apprenticeship or traineeship. 

In a traineeship you also gain hands-on skills and work experience, and improve your employment prospects, while earning a wage. On successful completion you will gain a nationally recognised qualification which can lead to rewarding career options. The difference between a traineeship and an apprenticeship is that a traineeship can be either a full time or part time employment based training arrangement, usually for a nominal duration of 12 months or more, generally in a non-trade related area.
