The IAB approved course materials have been specifically designed to demonstrate how Sage accounting software can be applied in an actual business capacity and used effectively to carry out various administrative tasks and financial management. Students of book-keeping who successfully pass the necessary course will be awarded the IAB’s nationally recognised QCF qualification and Sage will issue its own certificate, confirming the skills which have been both learned and demonstrated by the student during the course.

Malcolm Trotter, chief executive of the IAB says: “By effectively utilising Sage’s quality learning materials and the Sage 50 Accounts Professional software included within the course, we believe that learners will gain a deeper insight into how they can directly transfer their skills and knowledge into everyday business practice. In addition, the IAB qualification certificate and Sage certification presented together will provide employers with much greater assurance about the skills of existing staff or job applicants who have successfully completed the course”.
