TAFE Alternative Accounting Short Courses

Are you considering TAFE’s $149 “introduction to Cloud Accounting using Xero” training course? We’ve spoken to some students who enrolled into that training and ended up enrolling into our Xero Courses.

Did you know that this course does NOT include a training manual that you can download and keep as a reference?

Industry Endorsed Bookkeeping Courses

How Do You Like To Learn?

Online short courses in Xero are designed by expert trainers to help you learn by taking you through a learning journey that is based on the bookkeeping tasks that occur in a real life business.

If you want to learn this way it is the most economical way to learn a lot of things – PLUS it comes with all the training tools and support.

You can reach out to our support team whenever you have a question or if you get stuck on one of the practical exercises in the Xero courses.

One to One Xero Tutoring


We’ve been teaching students how to use accounting software for over a decade and believe that it is the best value for money way to learn Xero but some students prefer or need more one to one attention.

If you prefer to have one to one attention with a trainer/tutor then Xero (and MYOB) tutoring is the best way to go for you. When you choose a Xero Tutoring package you also receive the training course manual so you can have a go at the practical case studies.

Do You Want To Find Work Locally or Remotely, Working From Home?


Covid made us all work from home and showed employers than staff can be productive performing their work from home. Most of our training courses and packages include membership of our Bookkeeper Talent Pool and that is one way that we can help you get discovered by local employers for accounting jobs.

If you want more than just the technical training about how to use Xero (and MYOB) then Industry Connect put you in direct contact with a practicing bookkeeper, BAS Agent or Accountant. This is the best way to gain confidence when applying for work or getting bookkeeping clients.

Want a Nationally Recognised Certificate?

Many people think that TAFE Courses are the only official “Nationally Accredited Courses” available but in reality they are an RTO (Registered Training Organisation) like many other Training companies.


The most popular Nationally Accredited Course for Accounting is called the Cert IV in Bookkeeping and Accounting and it is the minimum requirements for anyone who wants to be a Registered BAS Agent.

You can start your own bookkeeping business without being a Registered BAS Agent BUT there are conditions around who needs to sign off on things like:

  • BAS Returns
  • Payroll Obligations like Superannuation
