We do not get any Govt. funding for the Practical Accountancy training programme, so to cover the costs of training, candidates pay the fees.
Our practical accountancy training fees are already discounted. If you pay in full upfront, you get a Free Tablet PC. If you want to pay by installments you can apply for Student Finance, where you will pay 10% of the course fee initially and rest of the course fee you can pay over 12 monthly installments. There is no interest to pay.
The training takes place at Osborne Training in a classroom environment or through our State of the Art Virtual Learning Campus under the supervision of a qualified mentor.
