Course Overview
This course is designed to provide you with comprehensive training in the latest SAGE Line 50 package. You will get the training in the SAGE Accounting package you require to develop your understanding and practical skills in computerised bookkeeping and accounting for use in the workplace.

Completing this course is ideal to improve your job prospects or help with a career change. It would also be useful if you are a small business owner who employs staff but do not want to have to pay for external book-keeping services. It may prove valuable to consider sending your staff for training and development in this field.

On successful completion of the course, you will be able to record routine and non-routine book-keeping and accounting transactions as well as being able to produce appropriate financial and management reports.
