Course Information

The Accounting sector services four main areas: commerce and industry, banking and finance, public practice and the public sector. Accountants will be found in Stockbroking, Auditing, Finance, Taxation, Management of information systems and Financial planning and Management.

The role of the Accountant is crucial to successful businesses around the world today. Accountants determine business performance results, interpret what they actually mean, and use them as an aid in the strategic development of the business as well as forecasting results.

Our nationally recognised courses cover these areas and equip you with the skills and knowledge required to obtain employment in a wide range of accounting businesses.

Course Information

Our Accounting courses have been developed according to the requirements of the Financial Services Training Package (FNS) and have been approved for delivery by the Australian Skills Quality Authority (ASQA). They are nationally recognised qualifications within the Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF).

Applicants without the previous level qualification will be considered if they have relevant qualification and/or vocational experience. Please contact the College for more information. We aim to equip our graduates with the necessary skills and knowledge to enable them to successfully satisfy the demands of the workplace.
