EzyLearn is Endorsed by Members of the Bookkeeping Industry
EZYLEARN HAS BEEN AN accredited training provider of the Institute of Certified Bookkeepers from 2012 until the end of February 2018. There are a number of nationally accredited training organisations and industry accredited training organisations.
Short courses (sometimes called night courses) are generally not nationally accredited, however these do give you fantastic “real-world” examples based on authentic case studies provided by registered BAS agents, bookkeepers and accountants. There is currently massive growth in Micro Courses and Micro Credentials and even though these are not aligned with Australia’s Nationally Accredited course framework they are now also delivered by universities and accounting bodies like CPA Australia.
Training course creators, like EzyLearn, can choose to be industry accredited if it is of merit to them, but the most important thing to consider as a student is to choose a course that’s written by industry practitioners with relevant and realistic “real world scenarios” included. It’s prudent to check ASIC registers to see how long your preferred training company has been operating too because that is a sign of the quality of the organisation.
We are committed to providing our students with top quality training courses, using real-life scenarios, at an affordable price. Our Updates and Additions Policy ensures you receive access to ALL OF THE NEW content we create for the course in which you enrolled — and we create new training material every week!
Our focus is always on education and creating new content regularly so that all of our students receive access to new Xero course content at no extra cost during their course access period.”
