Better Xero Course Than TAFE

TAFE is now just another RTO

TAFE is a State Government based education organisation that delivers a range of courses on many different topics. Before the Australian Skills Quality Authority (ASQA) was established in 2011 TAFE was considered the ONLY way to get Vocational Training for “In Demand” jobs that didn’t require a University degree,

Since ASQA was formed any one of the Regsitered Training Organisations (RTO’s) that have Accounting and Bookkeeping on their “Scope” can deliver and assess students for bookkeeping skills. The most common “Nationally Accredited” Bookkeeping Course is called the Cert IV in Bookkeeping and Accounting.

Nationally Accredited Courses

The MAIN reasons that students complete a Cert IV in Bookkeeping and Accounting course is to:

  1. Become a Regsitered BAS Agent
  2. Progress onto more advanced “Nationally Accredited” Training courses like Diploma’s

If you want to complete a Nationally Accredited Cert IV in Bookkeeping and Accounting we partner with a Registered Training Organisation called Think Academy.

We can provide you with both Nationally Accredited AND Industry Recognised Courses. Just let us know that this is important to you.

TAFE also delivers NON-Accredited Courses

We recently conducted some competitive market research about Xero courses and discovered that TAFE NSW are promoting an Introduction to Xero and Cloud Accounting training course (website below).

When we explored this further we discovered that their partner in this is a private NZ company?!

We’ve put this information together to help you clearly identify the difference between Nationally Accredited Courses like the Cert IV in Bookkeeping and other short courses in Xero and MYOB that we offer.
