Accounting Technicians are qualified accounting professionals that work in all levels of finance.
They are involved in the day to day practical work of accountancy and play a key operational role in producing reliable financial information.
In a small company they can be the only qualified employee looking after the finance function, while in a larger company they may be working as part of a team alongside accountants and administrative staff.
Donegal ETB Letterkenny will be running a full time Year 1 course starting in September 2014.
The Year 1 subjects include Financial Accounting, Taxation, Management and Law and Ethics.
Year 2 subjects include Advanced Financial Accounting, Advanced Taxation, Management Accounting and Integrated Accounting Systems.
Mature applicants over 21 can apply to enter Year 1 on the basis of age and experience rather than educational background.
Trainees selected for the Year 1 course will be eligible for training allowances. Trainees are expected to do 2-3 hours home study per day.
Course times are 8:30 to 14.00 Monday to Thursday with 12:45 finish on Friday.
For Year 1 the only fee to be paid by trainees is the Accounting Technicians Ireland annual registration fee of €170.
