Need to know
Students who have completed Certificate IV in Accounting and Bookkeeping or Accounting Principles Skills Set will potentially have completed units which will correspond towards the Diploma of Accounting. This may reduce the number of units required to complete the Diploma and reduce the overall price as prices are based on individual unit costs.
When studying online it is strongly recommended students follow the order of study and enrol in no more than two units per intake or the units required to complete a cluster/stage, unless otherwise advised.
This qualification has been replaced by FNS50222 Diploma of Accounting, as of 9 June 2022. A transition period applies to enable current students to complete their study. The transition period finishes on 8 June 2023.
