Accounting and bookkeeping functions are vital to any organisation. Accounting is primarily concerned with the analysis and forecasting of business activity, whilst bookkeeping aims to ensure that financial transactions and calculations are correctly reported.

The FNS50215 Diploma of Accounting and FNS40215 Certificate IV in Bookkeeping dual qualification is designed for people who want a strong and complete understanding of an organisation’s finances.

This course combines the fundamental units from both of these awards, with the addition of electives that will teach you how to process and prepare essential financial reports, accurately forecast and manage budgets and maintain well organised accounting systems.

At the completion of this course, you will maximise your employment opportunities by receiving two Nationally Recognised financial services qualifications.

Student reviews

"I would thoroughly recommend Australian College to anyone who wants to learn something new, or add to the knowledge base they may already have on a particular subject.

There is a multitude of different courses to choose from that could take the individual in whatever direction they would like to take - be it for increased work opportunities or simply to stimulate the mind.

My thanks for helping me to open up a new direction in my life."
