What Accounting or Bookkeeping Course is Right For You

  • I work in Accounts and want to step up

    Certificate IV in Accounting or Bookkeeping will build on the key concepts learnt from your hands on experience. Or if hesitant about starting study - start with Certificate III in Accounts Administration.

  • I want to progress from Administration

    Certificate III in Accounts Administration is the right starting qualification for those wanting to broaden their administration skills as it teaches you the fundamentals needed for many Accounts jobs and prepares you for a higher qualification.

  • Want to learn Accounts Payable or Accounts Receivable?

    Certificate III in Accounts Administration is the ideal qualification. If you have the desire, it lays a good foundation for higher level accounting study.

  • Administration Course with Accounts

    Certificate III in Business Administration can be offered with accounts electives - providing a mix of office skills as well as accounts payable.

  • Certificate IV or Diploma of Accounting?

    Certificate level qualifications are your hands on practical courses covering double entry bookkeeping concepts, preparation and analysis of financial statements. You need this prior knowledge to successfully enrol in a Diploma.

  • Important Completion Dates for Superseded Accounting and Bookkeeping Qualifications

    Students enrolled in FNS30315, FNS40615, FNS40215  must have completed their course by 11 February 2019  and FNS50215 by 11 February 2020

    Our application to ASQA to have the replacement qualifications added to our scope has been successful.

    Students have been completed or transitioned accordingly, with just 15 Diploma students to complete by 2020.


  • What are the new Accounting qualifications?

    The new qualifications are:

    FNS30317 - Certificate III in Accounts Administration (replacing FNS30315)

    FNS40217 - Certificate IV in Accounting and Bookkeeping (replacing FNS40615 and FNS40215)

    FNS50217 - Diploma of Accounting (replacing FNS50215)

    Enrolments into the replacement qualifications will be available shortly.  You can still enrol in the superseded qualifications because we will automatically transition you to the replacement qualification at no charge.  Any work that you complete before then will be recognised under the new qualification.  Please refer to our Transition Policy or call the College on 1800 111 700 and ask to speak to a Director of Training.

  • Can I Direct Enter into The Diploma

    The requirement is that you must have at least 6 units from the Certificate IV qualification.

    If you do not already hold these units – you would enrol in the Certificate IV first.

    ACCM College have designed our Certificate IV program to allow more confident students to progress quickly through this program and be ready for the Diploma. This means that we would have you complete the whole Certificate IV.

    We have also maximised the Credit Transfers (that reduce both your work and fees) in the Diploma from having completed our Certificate IV program.

    And if you are enrolled outside a funded program – we would provide a generous discount for entry into the Diploma within 3 months of completing our Certificate IV qualification, so that you are not financially disadvantaged by doing the full Certificate IV.
