Q: What is the average completion time for these courses?
A: Our statistics are showing that on average our students are completing B1 in 48 days and B2 in 79 days. 

Q: Do I need a computer?
A: Yes. It is essential as you will need to complete a series of online knowledge tests, practical assignments and the mock exams and full exams are online. A tablet could be used although it would be slightly restricting with screen size. 
Microsoft Excel is recommended for the practical activities.

Q: Do I have a designated tutor or will it change depending on when I ask for help.
A: You will have a designated tutor for the duration of the course. Questions and marking of assignments is guaranteed to be less than 24 hours during the week, although the average response time between 9am and 5.30pm is less than 2 hours. Weekends and evenings can take a little longer. Answers to online knowledge tests are instant and available 24/7 

Q: If I fail an exam do you cover the cost of taking it again?
A: No. We have an exams department plus many online tests and simulations to prepare our students for exams. It is only when both student and tutor are 100% confident that we put anyone forward for an exam. We have very few students failing exams and as such do not factor resit fees into our prices. We have discounts available on exam fees so in the unlikely event of a failure the full price would never be payable.

Q: Do I need Sage on my computer for this course.
A: No. This course does not cover Computerised Bookkeeping. it focuses on the knowledge and practical aspects of bookkeeping which can then be transposed into Computersed Bookeeping. Computerised Bookkeeping starts with the B3 course

I found this course to be perfect to fit in with my life, as a mature student with two teenage kids and having just been made redundant I needed to find a course where I could dictate time times I worked. Having a home based course like this one was perfect, plus having email tutor support worked for me better than I could have wished. The details and layout made it ideal to follow and work through at my own pace. The email support was great and very responsive, my Tutor Steve was very understanding and explained answers to my questions in a way I could understand better, even if it did take a couple of attempts. In the end I was successful in passing the exams, I have been so pleased with Training Link that I have ordered a Sage course and I am looking at an additional payroll course.
I would highly recommend Training Link to anyone looking at getting into the world of bookkeeping

Great starting point to bookkeeping
I have just completed this course, and thought it would be worth while to review it.

The course arrived in a few days of ordering, and Training Link were very friendly while arranging the monthly payments.

The material is easy to follow, and I never felt completely lost in what I was being asked to do. The activities are set at a good level of difficulty to properly test your understanding.

When I did need tutor support, I found them very accessible and friendly, Often replying within a few hours.

The exams are fairly challenging, I would recommend buying the extra mock exam as I was able to gain a few extra marks from doing so.

This is course is a great foundation knowledge/skill builder, and I am looking forward to continuing my studies.
