Ever since the first caveman traded a shiny rock for the second cave man’s banana, money, and where it goes, have been the bedrock of civilization.  Whether you trade in dollars, pounds, rubles or shiny rocks, a decent living can be had for anyone with the skills to follow the money.
 

For anyone with a head for finance or business, a job as a Bookkeeper can be an excellent undertaking.  Knowing where an organization's money is going and understanding it is an essential skill that all of them, from a single trader just starting out to a global corporation, need. It’s also an important skill for decision makers within a company as being able to read the books of an organization is paramount to making wise and sensible moves.
 

Technically anyone can be a Bookkeeper; it is not a protected profession in the same way that accountancy is and a qualification is not needed to work or trade as one. Nevertheless, nobody would argue that bookkeeping is not a skilled job requiring training and practice in order to perform it well. That’s why taking a course on the subject is a good idea. Firstly, it ensures you get to learn the skills to ensure you are performing the role correctly and to a professional standard. Secondly, being able to point to having completed a course demonstrates your professionalism to any potential employer out there.

At ADL, the Bookkeeping courses we recommend are accredited by the Institute of Certified Bookkeepers (ICB). This is a world-leading body that advocates for standards and quality in bookkeeping and accounting. Getting your bookkeeping qualification this way has several advantages worth considering including:

An Internationally Recognized Qualification

The I.C.B. is recognized around the world. Getting qualified through them ensures that your work and achievement is considered seriously by businesses and organizations globally.

Quality Skills and Training

To be an ICB approved course a learning programme must deliver skills and training to ensure that a student can graduate confident that the abilities developed are both relevant and complete in their scope. By completing the course, a student demonstrates their competence in being able to work professionally in the roles covered by the material.  

Modular Learning

The ICB course is delivered across a series of separate modules that build up to a full diploma, meaning you can learn what you need to get started as a Bookkeeper and then further develop your skills in line with growing practical experience in the workplace.

Professional Tuition

With ADL, all ICB courses are delivered under the tutelage of experts who are themselves working professional bookkeepers. As such, they are best placed to, not only guide and prepare you for the challenges provided by your learning programme but to advise you in how best to apply what you have learned to real business situations.

Membership of a Professional Body

Completing an ICB course of study entitles the graduate to membership with the ICB. This opens the doors to a wealth of professional opportunities to network and grow whether you bookkeep for yourself or for others.
