ICB Level 2 –  Entry Level Package – Certificate in Bookkeeping

Latest Syllabus. The Level 2 Package Certificate in Bookkeeping course is an entry level qualification to help you on your way to becoming a Professional Bookkeeper.  The course content focuses on the ICB syllabus in order to prepare you for the ICB examinations. The package includes the following 3 (three) modules:

  • A1 and A2 (Manual Bookkeeping) 
  • A3 (Computerised Bookkeeping)

As an entry level qualification, this Level 2 Certificate package will equip you to manage:

  • Your own or your business partners bookkeeping and accounts
  • Apply for jobs and begin your career in Bookkeeping and Accounts,
  • Take the first steps to become a fully qualified Bookkeeper
  • Provide Self-employed Bookkeeper services.

The computerised section of this package (A3), is based on Sage 50 Accounts, ideal for small business owners. However, the majority of accounts/bookkeeping jobs advertised require an applicant to be familiar with Sage 50 Professional software. (Not Sage 50 Essentials and NO monthly subscriptions)

Once you have completed your Level 2 Certificate in Bookkeeping you have the opportunity to upgrade your ICB membership status.  In this event you can use the letters AICB after your name, plus have access to the professional support and resources available through the ICB (Institute of Certified Bookkeepers).
