Our Certified ICB Self-Employed Bookkeeper packages are the proven solution for those seeking the flexibility and financial rewards that come with a career as a Legal and Certified Self-Employed Bookkeeper.

The obstacles of time, ability and costs immediately spring to mind, but this has always been the case regardless of subject and cost.
At Training Link the situation is somewhat different, as we have invested heavily over the past 11 years in the continued development of our courses and additional resources with the aim of providing our students with exactly what it says on the tin.

The proven quality and standard of our courses enables students who are often complete beginners to progress smoothly and quickly through the courses and ICB exams. There are actually more Training Link students taking and passing ICB exams every Month than all other ICB colleges and training providers combined. This obviously adds up every year to more Training Link students achieving their objectives of becoming a Certified ICB Self Employed Bookkeeper.

Winning the top ‘Training Provider of The Year’ award for the past five consecutive years is not only a great honour, it is also testament to the hard work, commitment and investment by the Training Link team. It is also recognition of the fantastic success our students have achieved over the years.

We fully understand that costs will be high on your list of priorities, and although at first glance we may appear to be expensive, the reality is that our students actually complete the courses and achieve their goals of becoming a Self Employed Bookkeeper. If you’re committed to your learning, it will be money invested in your future.

So if you value your time, money and future think about investing in it wisely. If you compare us to other colleges and cheap or even free offerings on the web you will see that we are providing a Five Star product and service for the price of a Two Star product and service. We include all registration and exam fees, provide a lot more content, materials and support than you will find available anywhere in the UK.

If you buy cheap, you invariably find yourself buying twice.

The inclusion of our unique and invaluable Online Enhanced Resources Centre has not only reduced our students valuable study time by up to 45%, it has also proven over the past 11 years to greatly increase our students’ completion and success rates. 

Furthermore, we offer interest free flexible monthly payment plans with all of our course packages, so the reality is that you could be fully qualified before you have finished paying.
