Hi guys,
Does anyone have this qulification or is currently studying towards it?
How hard is it to complete? and is it worth it, or am I better to do the ACCA?

THanks!

    I'm currently doing the final level of the NVQ based qualification. Its hard work but really rewarding. Doing it depends on how much experience you have of accounts and how much time you can devote to doing it. AAT also gives you a gateway into most of the other accounting/finance qualifications. It is worth it, even if the project in the final year drives you up the wall!

    What is AAT?
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,328 The Mix Honorary Guru
    I'm doing AAT Intermediate. Stands for Association of Accounting Technicians.

    I don't find it difficult in itself, it's just remembering it all I have problems with!
    If I get through this year I am going to carry on and do the technician level next year.

    What level are you going to start at?
