My Most popular question to date

Should I do a bookkeeping or account courses

For those that are looking for a job in either the bookkeeping or for those that are looking for a job in either the bookkeeping or accounting field, it is highly recommended that you look for a qualification in Bookkeeping certificate or an accounting certificate FNS40615 . For those that are feeling more adventurous, you can also choose to do the accounting diploma or bookkeeping diploma.

Prerequisites for Bookkeeping or accounting courses

Generally no, but there is a couple of things that you need to keep in mind, these subjects work with numbers so if you are a student and when you were studying in schools number would scare you like spiders then this subject is not for you. There is no point choosing a subject that you are going to hate just because you think it has a good job opportunity. You will get to a point when you realize that you hate it and then you are stuck looking for the next opportunity when you should have done that in the first place.

 

Does this give me university credits

There is no simple answer to this question. With all qualifications, they have a course code or a certain topic that they cover if the university has the exact same code and you pass it at an RTO level or a Tafe level. then those credits are generally transferable. You also need to look at if the university that you choose excepts credits from an Australian RTO or TAFE because even those the Australian education system is very well known. There are some country and university that will now accept it.

What are the job opportunities for bookkeeping or accounting

One of the reasons many people choose to study either bookkeeping or accounting is that fact of job security and flexibility it offers you. It also has other benefits including great flexibility in work hours and also allows you to open up your own business with very minimum fuss or training. If you are a person that has a family or enjoys the idea of a good social life and you do not hate numbers than studying either bookkeeping or accounting might be the course for you. Always remember before making any decisions of which course you should study always visit open days and speak to other students that have studied that subject to give you a better perspective on what you can expect when doing the course and also speak to people that have completed the course to see what type of work they are doing and see if that is what you expected and if it is something you want to do.

Final word

Studying a bookkeeping or accounting is not everyone's idea of a good time but if the idea of working with profit and losses, balance sheet gets your juices flowing that this is the course for you. If you have never studied it in the past it's a good idea to complete a shorter course e.g. a certificate 2 in bookkeeping before you jump into Certifave 4 or Certificate  5.
