What is a bookkeeping short course?
Short courses are usually 3 to 12 months in duration. Sometimes they are merely introductory courses, and other times they teach specific skills that will widen your professional skill set.
There are many benefits to taking a short course:
- Affordability: They cost less than comprehensive courses.
- Limited commitment: They allow you to test out a subject before investing a lot of time and money in it.
- Compactness: They are condensed, fitting a lot of content into a short timeframe.
- Convenience: You can keep your full-time job while studying part-time.
- Career boosters: They add new skills and qualifications to your CV.
- Skill refreshers: You can take a short course to brush up on your existing skills.
