AAT Courses: Live Online – Combined Level 2 & 3 Super Fast-Track

With Distance Learning – Live Online we are offering you the opportunity to continue developing your skills, gaining an accounting qualification to boost your existing career, or enabling you to start a new career, with our video conference based, live tutor, home-study accounting course.
This particular course is a compressed, intensive, super fast-track course. That means it is suited for those who can put aside the most amount of time to assign to study and learning for about 9 months, but those people with less time available should consider the individual Level 2 or Level 3 courses in standard or fast-track options.

What are AAT Distance Learning Plus – Live Online Courses?

Distance Learning Plus –  Live Online offer the advantages and structure usually found only in the classroom courses, but with the independence of studying from home – avoiding the time and cost of commuting to your college campus. If you have access to a computer or device with a webcam suitable for video conferencing, just click to join your scheduled virtual classroom and you are in – joining your tutor and the rest of the class from your own home.

Choose from daytime, evening or weekend timetabled live lectures online, and talk to tutors during the class for live feedback. Additionally, our lectures are recorded for you, so if you miss one you can catch up or re-watch classes for extra revision. We think it’s the safest, most stress-free and motivational way to study.

Who’s it for?

Distance Learning Plus – Live Online suits people who want the benefits of interactive class based learning, enjoy live tutor support and the flexibility and motivation of a tutor-structured approach to their studies, but with the flexibility of joining remotely from wherever you have internet access.

Now is a good time to prepare and improve your skills and qualifications, as organisations and the economy rebound.

What to expect?

Hybrid working, less commuting and the greater use of online technology is meaning that we all might have a little more spare time and motivation to learn.

Our Distance Learning Plus – Live Online virtual classrooms allow you to enjoy the whole interactive, live classroom experience delivered by our expert tutors from your own home.

This could be an opportunity for you to push ahead and do more studying than you had considered previously. The perfect time for a career boost.
