Five steps to getting started with AAT
You can study for AAT full-time, part-time, from home and online, and training is delivered through one of our 460 AAT approved training providers.
We recommend searching for a training provider near you online, shortlisting a few that offer your preferred way of learning, and contacting them. AAT approved training providers are always happy to advise you without obligation, so feel free to ask about the course before you register.
If you’ve taken AAT Skillcheck, you can take your results along to the training provider and ask their advice on a starting level.
After two to three years of practical training and diligent study, you’ll have achieved a recognised, professional and practical qualification; a worthy addition to your CV.
Once you’ve qualified and built up your work experience, you can apply for AAT professional membership - a respected sign of accounting excellence and, with the letters MAAT after your name, a great way to stand out from the crowd.
MAAT status is also your first step towards running your own accountancy practice, and you may qualify for exemptions to study chartered accountancy or a degree.
