Testimonials

  • Becoming a member of IAB and now IAAP are two of the best investments I feel I could have become a part of. They represent International bodies that especially in this technological and digital age serve to keep you in the arena of being successful. In almost every fibre of business is bookkeeping and accounting and to be able to not only have the resources and benefits; you can proudly and confidently walk beside other professionals wearing your designated letters behind yo ...

    Tempie Williams, MIAB, AIAAP

    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.

  • Qualifications matter a huge deal - most jobs require some kind of training and having an IAB qualification really opens doors.

    Susan Jones

    I found studying by Distance Learning a lot better than I thought it would be. The text books provided with the course are excellent, and I was able to complete the course a lot quicker than I would have been able to following a college-based curriculum.

  • There are several things I like about being a member of the IAB, but I think the most important one to me personally is that the organisation is about people.  Helping people, training people and encouraging people to be great bookkeepers. I'm certain my business wouldn't have survived it's first year without their guidance and reassurance.

    As a member of "IAB", I find the services provided by this organisation excellent.  It helps me to achieve my work goals and keep up to date with current financial information. I really enjoyed the newsletter that I read at my own pace.  I find all the IAB staff extremely supportive.  The CPD structure is so flexible that it fits in with my other commitment. I would definitely recommend membership to anyone.What a fantastic organisation!

  • 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 ...

    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.  ...
