You may apply for exemptions from some or all Year 1 modules if you have previously completed other qualifications such as HETAC, BTEC or equivalent course of study.

All exemption applications are assessed on an individual basis and exemptions are only granted from Year 1 subjects on the programme. Accounting Technicians Ireland can only offer exemptions on the basis of qualifications awarded in the last six years. For further details on how we award exemptions please see our Exemptions Policy.

Exemptions must be applied for before you register as a student with Accounting Technicians Ireland and cannot be awarded if you have registered with us previously. Exemptions are only valid when you have fully registered with Accounting Technicians Ireland and all fees have been paid.

If you are considering registering as a new student and would like to apply for exemptions, you must do so via our online registration portal. In Step 3 of your registration, you will be required to upload copies of your official transcripts/mark-sheets for all years of study. Please note that transcripts must show the modules, dates and grades of each exam passed.

If your previous qualification is in a language other than English, you will need to provide an official certified translation of your transcripts.

You can expect to receive an exemption confirmation email within 10 working days of uploading your documentation.
