AAT and Monarch Institute have teamed together in a strategic partnership to present outstanding training opportunities to bookkeeping professionals on their career journey.  As a special offer, bookkeepers enrolling in the Monarch Institute Certification IV New Small Business will receive a 5% discount on their enrolment fee. To take advantage of this special offer, please email your expression of interest to membership@aat.org.au.

The Association of Accounting Technicians takes a holistic approach to supporting the professional development of bookkeepers in Australia. Part of this charter is ensuring that members have the tools they need to grow and expand their practice. This means education, training and skill sharing not just in the technical aspects of bookkeeping, but in operating as a professional and understanding clients’ challenges and objectives.

Professional bookkeepers and the world of small business are inextricably linked. Current statistics show that many bookkeepers practice as independent contractors. Further, small to medium sized businesses are most likely to outsource their bookkeeping and accounting requirements. So whether you’re trying to grow your business, or better understand your clients’ needs, it makes sense to develop your skills and knowledge around business management.

We are pleased to recommend Monarch Institute for small business training. They’re our training provider of choice because they offer students:

  • Flexible enrolment and start times – no term dates

  • Online courses with great support (phone, email, Skype, Facebook, etc.)

  • Dedicated trainers with decades of combined experience in business

  • Multiple small assessments (no exams!)

  • Holistic, modularised teaching

  • Recognition of prior learning (RPL) for previous studies

  • Government funding for eligible students
