Overview: Accounting processes have moved forward at an explosive pace during the past 10 years and accounting education has often not kept pace with these changes, the result is that many people using accounting software, whilst having academic knowledge, can lack the up to date practical skills required by businesses to perform their accounting functions.

CIMA/ICAEW and Sage have partnered to offer a training solution that will provide an excellent grounding in computerised accounting. The foundation certificate includes six units with a self assessment test after each unit and a practice test before the final assessment.

The Certificate can be studied as a standalone qualification or incorporated into the modules of the CIMA Certificate/ICAEW CFAB in Business Accounting to give students a thorough understanding of how accounting transactions are recorded and reported.
