Learn the essentials
AAT Essentials are short training courses designed to help you quickly learn crucial finance skills.
They're ideal for non-finance staff looking for a better understanding of key financial processes, as well as finance and accounting professionals looking to keep their skills fresh.
Courses are currently delivered online, and face-to-face courses will resume once local coronavirus (Covid-19) restrictions allow.
We run open AAT Essentials courses on a regular basis, as well as corporate training for groups of staff.
