Build a bookkeeping career that counts

 

Bookkeeping skills are the bedrock of micro businesses today. Without doubt, they:

Testimonials

  • In 2011 I enrolled at the UWI Open Campus in Barbados to pursue the Level 3 Diploma in Bookkeeping & Accounting.  Taking that first course was like a refresher for me which led to me taking another course.  As the studies progressed they became challenging but with the help of my tutor Mr. Brathwaite and Louise Scott my personal attendant at IAB it became easier and led to my successful completion of three Level 3 exams. I even attained my MIAB designation.  ...

    I decided to setup a small business providing book-keeping and payroll services shortly after my retirement.  My previous experience had given me a background in administration and financial management but no direct experience of industry.  Membership of the IAB proved invaluable in getting the project off the ground. Not only did they endorse my qualifications;  I have since achieved FIAB; but they also provided a range of essential services such as a Practice ...

  • Distance learning was the perfect solution for me as i was able to fit it in around my full time job and enabled me to work from home when it suited me. The distance learning option meant I could work to my own time schedule and I was under no pressure to meet a deadline as I booked the exam when I wanted and fealt ready. The course was easy to follow and well structured and my training provider,Groves Training Limited, offered excellent support and feedback throughout the ...

    Studying on a distance learning course is a really flexible way of tailoring your studies around your work and home life. For this reason distance learning really appealed to me. I have a busy life and trying to commit to a set day or evening every week was difficult for me. I was able to study when and where I wanted and also being able to control how quickly I could complete the course was so helpful. I was always confident I was on top of my studies; if I was busy one week ...

  • The IAB course has given me a passion for bookkeeping and now I have an internationally recognised qualification to help me build my career. The course motivated me to learn more about how businesses work and has made me realise how in-demand bookkeeping is – I know my skills will always be needed. With distance learning you can work at your own pace around your commitments. This was great for me plus, I get the one-to-one support I need from professional tutors.

    Karen Groves at Groves Training Services has been exceptionally supportive from my first enquiry, throughout both courses and during Examination Stage. She always made herself available whenever I had a query and answered my query in a very thorough & professional manner. The coursework was upto date and easy to follow. I have studied both IAB Level 1 and 2 Manual Bookkeeping with Groves Training Services and I highly recommend them as a Distance Learning Centre.

  • I would highly recommend distance learning as a great way to study. You need to be self-motivated but that’s great for me and it gives me the flexibility to fit studying around everything else. I can truly study at my own pace and spend more time on the areas that I find more challenging, rather than having to go at the speed of the tutor. Groves Training Services is a really committed provider which offers an excellent all round service. They have experienced, understa ...

    Jane Holland AIAAP, FIAB

    I would like to take this opportunity of thanking you for all your help and advice when I recently joined the International Association of Bookkeepers.   I was kept fully informed of all stages of my application and on the acceptance of my membership I was sent a certificate of membership along with a great leather folder of information. I have also needed the assistance of the compliance team when trying to move my supervision for money laundering to the IAB after ...
