Qualifications

AIA offers a range of qualifications and educational opportunities to suit all kinds of people looking to enter the accountancy profession, at all stages of their lives and careers; from school leavers, to graduates, to those who are already working.

ACCOUNTANCY

The AIA Professional Accountancy Qualification is suited for school leavers (A Level) and graduates who are looking to become a professionally qualified accountant. It is also ideal for Accounting Technicians and Bookkeepers who are looking for the next step up. Alternatively you may already be working in the accountancy profession but do not have a professional qualification. More...

AUDIT

The AIA Recognised Professional Qualification (RPQ) is specifically for those who wish to qualify as a Statutory Auditor. Like the AIA Professional Accountancy Qualification, you can start on completion of your A Levels, or you could choose to take a degree first, or perhaps you have already started your career and need a change of direction.

QUALIFICATIONS & CREDIT FRAMEWORK (QCF)

The QCF gives a wider range of learners the opportunity to get the qualifications they need, in a way that suits them. The QCF is a system for recognising skills and qualifications. It does this by awarding credit for qualifications and units (small steps of learning). Units are the building blocks of all qualifications and AIA has 19 units in the QCF databank, which can be taken as stand-alone units (except where rules of combination apply), or combined to create a qualification.

The availability of the Diploma and Certificate programmes vary from country to country. More...
