Other Training Courses & Options

We offer other training courses and training delivery options as detailed below. If you don’t see what you’re looking for, please contact us to discuss your requirements as we can tailor training to suit you.


This one day course is perfect for unskilled people who have a little knowledge of accounts and have heard of the “cloud” but haven’t really dabbled in it too much. It could also suit someone who has been a stay-at-home mum who now wants to get back into the workforce; and would be great for bookkeepers who have used MYOB or other desktop based applications during their career but now want to update.

This course has been designed to teach participants the day-to-day dynamics of Xero so you could apply for a position doing accounts in a business or for a practice that uses Xero as their accounting software.

Participants will be linked with a recruitment agency that has lists of practices looking for staff who can use Xero.

Available upon request.
