Bookkeeping Instalment Plans
Receiving your course material on CD-ROM is our most popular method (this gives students portability - some even take their CD’s with them on holidays!). The course material may also be copied and saved to a USB stick, as well as downloading, printing and binding the lessons into a folder for you to organise. CD’s are also an excellent choice for people who have a computer but do not have internet access or have a slow connection.
Online students require a reliable internet connection. Our Student Study Zone allows you to view all of your course material online, anywhere in the world. Students can watch videos, read notes and study illustrations on the computer screen then complete self assessment quizzes to gauge their learning.
Course material may be supplied in a printed format. Students work through notes, practical tasks and assignments. The student is guided by a printed study guide and accompanying materials as well as advice and feedback from tutors. Assignments are submitted to tutors for grading and feedback, and exams can be taken anywhere in the world.
Recommended Sequence of ICB Courses
1. Basic Bookkeeping – Compulsory
2. Level II - Manual Bookkeeping
3. Level II - Computerised Bookkeeping
After successfully passing the three (3) examinations at the above levels you are entitled to apply for Associate Membership of the ICB under their new regulations and have the initial AICB after your name. Also, at this level you are then qualified to start your own bookkeeping business (if that is your goal) – in this instance you will need to apply for the ICB's Practising Certificate.
4. Level III - Diploma in Payroll Management
5. Level III - Diploma in Manual Bookkeeping BBS310
6. Level III - Diploma in Computerised Bookkeeping
