Study OutlineThe Foundation Certificate course involves five modules which provide an introduction to the accounting function:

AssessmentThe course involves 5 areas of study at Foundation Certificate Level 2 which are all examined through the use of computerised assessments. There are no portfolios or assignments to complete and most assessments will give you an instant result and the opportunity to resit where necessary
