At Applied Education, our course content is developed in consultation with industry partners and professional bodies such as the Institute of Certified Bookkeepers.
As part of your enrolment in a Bookkeeping & Accounting Course such as the Certificate IV in Accounting and Bookkeeping, you will receive a complimentary student membership to the Institute of Certified Bookkeepers (ICB).
Please note that this complimentary membership offer can only be claimed once.
