A day In The Life Of An Accounting Technicians Ireland Student

Have you been thinking about taking up an Accounting Technicians Ireland course? If so, you might be wondering what a typical day looks like for an ATI student. The great thing about an ATI course is that you can choose one that best suits your lifestyle. You can study with the flexible ATI Online programme, or choose a daytime or evening course with one of the partner colleges starting January 2023. Furthermore, you can choose to complete an Apprenticeship, Diploma or Certificate. 

Accounting Technician Apprenticeship

Qualify as an Accounting Technician with a two-year work-based education training programme. In this fully-funded programme, apprentices study online and gain significant experience working with an employer, earning a salary of at least €22,035 per annum. For these students each day looks slightly different. They are required to study online with their college one day a week and work with a partner company the other four days. Each year the students will cover four modules; one day the students could be learning about Taxation and Business Law and another they might be doing Financial Accounting and Business Management. Students sit exams during August and will find themselves doing some revision after work in the weeks leading up to them. 

Certificate for Accounting Technicians

Develop strong foundation in business and accountancy. This one year programme is the first step to qualifying as an Accounting Technician and enables progression to the Diploma. This course is fully remote and allows great flexibility. Students are free to work at their own pace and the modules covered include; Taxation, Business Law, Financial Accounting and Business Management. Some students will choose to get their study and work done at the same time each day and others will have a routine that varies a lot more.
