Instead we have redirected those resources into our online training platform, content and the very best online support for students.
ALL OF OUR XERO courses include real life case studies, derived from our popular MYOB training courses (which we’ve been providing to thousands of students since 1996) so you learn how to perform bookkeeping tasks using Xero “Cloud” Accounting Software in a way that is relevant, meaningful and interesting — and which will actually help you win work.
We start with a step-by-step workbook featuring typical business operations for common bookkeeping tasks and then build videos, exercises and tests surrounding these case studies.

The videos [are best] because they are shown in a way that is easy to understand. I found the video training a very easy way to learn. The visual for me works best and well as hearing the explanation. Helen Nel – Newcastle NSW 2300
The best part are videos which are the right duration to keep me concentrated. I found training workbooks easy to follow as well. Marina Despot – St Johns Park NSW 2176
I really enjoyed completing the knowledge reviews. Charline Buckley – Heritage Park QLD 4118
I can do it on my own speed. Everything is explained in single steps and easy to follow. Carola Reich – South Bank VIC 3006
The videos and the step-by-step instructions and tips along the way were the best part. Also support was understanding of issues that parents or in general students have with personal life . It does not go always as planned. But the timeframe for the course was great. Sheni Lal-Karan – Joyner, QLD 4500
