Accounting Technicians fill a wide range of positions including:

  • Accounts Clerk/Manager

  • Payroll Administrator
  • Stock Controller

The Accounting Technician, having gained appropriate experience, will be competent in:

  • Computation of tax liabilities
  • Setting up and managing systems for budgets
  • Stock control
  • Cost accounting
  • Cash reconciliation
  • Credit control
  • Using Information Technology (IT) effectively

While the Accounting Technician qualification is in itself a passport to a rewarding career, many graduates continue their studies, to become fully qualified professional Accountants

Assessment and certification

Students take examinations in May each year. Repeat sittings are taken in August. All examinations are set and graded independently of the Institute by Accounting Technicians Ireland.

Exam results are generally available in July (May sitting) and late September (August sitting) and are sent directly to the student by Accounting Technicians Ireland.

On successful completion of Second Year students may become Affiliate Members of Accounting Technicians Ireland allowing them to maintain their professional affiliation while they complete the work experience requirement of the Diploma.

When graduates have completed two years of approved relevant work experience, students are awarded the Diploma for Accounting Technicians.
