Practical vocational qualifications that lead to ICB membership and professional status.

If you are well organized and methodical, have good attention to detail and enjoy seeing a set of figures add up properly, studying bookkeeping is for you. We work with USA training providers to give you access to flexible courses of a high standard which will lead to our world-class qualifications.

ICB is ready when you are

You can register immediately as a student and take your first assessment the same day - there are no entry requirements.  You just need to be a Registered Student, know your student number and take ICB's qualifications in order.  

If you do not yet have any bookkeeping knowledge, you will be able to take a course with one of ICB's Accredited Training Providers. Most ICB students train from home by part-time 'distance learning' but you will also be able to study at college.  ICB does not provide training.

Qualifications that put you in control

ICB qualifications can be completed in any week of the year, so you can become a professional bookkeeper in your own time, around your job, family or other commitments.    

ICB qualifications will equip you for a future job in bookkeeping or for setting up your own business, so you have the flexibility to move between roles if your circumstances change.

Qualifications that are respected

ICB qualifications are developed in consultation with employers, government, small business owners and experienced bookkeepers. Renowned as providing the principal and toughest qualifications in bookkeeping in the world, ICB ensures that its syllabus is rigorously practical and relevant to the work you will be doing as a bookkeeper.

Once you have completed your assessments, you will receive prestigious qualification certificates to improve your resume and be eligible to apply for official membership of ICB. Members stand out from the crowd with professional letters after their name and access to vital support resources, legal advice and other benefits.
