Course Description

A first of its kind and only available through Open Colleges, the Accounting Pathway Program provides a clear route to progress through three nationally recognised qualifications: 

  • Certificate IV in Accounting
  • Diploma of Accounting (general stream or tax stream)
  • Advanced Diploma of Accounting (general stream or managerial accounting stream or tax stream)

You can start with no accounting background, and learn accounting from the ground up. After completing the Certificate IV in Accounting, you can launch your career and get work as a Bookkeeper or Accounts Clerk, while continuing your online study to qualify for senior accounting roles after you graduate.

An extra benefit of this program is that you’ll save a significant amount of money by studying all three qualifications in the one streamlined pathway, as opposed to studying and paying for each course separately.

This program meets the Tax Practitioners Board (TPB) education requirements for registered BAS (Business Activity Statements) Agents.

This course grants you an Affiliate membership with the Tax Institute.
