George passed all three AAT levels in record time. Now he’s working for a successful accounting practice in London. But a year ago he had zero experience in accounting.
How did he do it?
What is the secret? And why is it impossible to do in a traditional college?
Before I answer that, it’s worth me telling you a little more about George Tampakas.
George studied automation engineering in his home city of Athens but soon found his heart wasn’t in it. After a few frustrating years as an estate agent in a tough housing market he worked as a DJ.
But in 2019 he wanted to shake things up with a new life and the promise of a career. So he packed his bags for a fresh start in London.
No accounting experience? No problem
After researching Universities with an intention of studying Economics, George stumbled upon AAT. And the career prospects of these employer-recognised qualifications made it a no-brainer.
“I didn’t have to think more. That was for me.”
Buzzing with energy, George couldn’t wait to get stuck in: “my motivation and determination were so high that I wanted to learn more and more and progress.”
So, how did he gain all three qualifications in less than a year?
He studied online with Training Link.
Fast-track studies are impossible in a traditional college
Can you study AAT levels 2, 3, and 4 in a college in one year?
No. And to be honest, even if you could we wouldn’t recommend it. It’s a tough challenge and can only be accomplished by a huge amount of hard work. But as George’s success shows, it is possible.
Just not at an old-fashioned college. And for one simple reason…
At a college you fit your studies in with the schedule of the institution. You’re forced onto a conveyor belt which slowly moves all learners along at the Exact. Same. Pace.
But people aren’t like that. You aren’t like that.
We’ve ripped up the college conveyor belt
As George said: “without having to attend classes I have a more flexible program. This enabled me to study and work at the same time.”
When you study online with us, you dictate the pace of progression. You fit your studies around your life. This flexibility is what has made it possible for George.
Need to fast-track your studies?
– You can.
Prefer to study only at weekends?
– That’s fine.
Studying during the week but can’t stick to the same scheduled days?
– This works too.
It’s completely flexible. And as shown by thousands of Training Link students over 25 years, there is no trade-off with educational quality.
How to pick your AAT training provider
Studying online or ‘distance learning’ is not new. The odds are that you’ll already have spoken to a few others and you may be finding it hard to choose.
What should you be looking for?
Think about what you want to achieve. Where do you want to be in six months? If you’re like most people, you want to be enjoying your new job with one eye already on that next rung of the career ladder. To do that you need to pass your AAT exams.
That means you should be looking at the one statistic that counts: pass rates.
We can talk about our unique course books, extra resources, and additional tests. These all give you the best chances to study successfully and learn the subject inside and out. And I’m more than happy to wax lyrical about the level of support you’ll get from our team of award-winning tutors.
But let’s keep things simple.
You want a career in accounting. To do that you need to gain an AAT qualification, so let’s take a look at our AAT exam pass rates:
- 93.5% pass rate for AAT Level 2 Accounting
- 92% for AAT Level 3 Accounting
And our pass rate for Level 4 is 15.8% higher than the national average (77.8% vs 62% for the national average).
It’s no wonder George enrolled with us.
Your exclusive discount until Monday 12th April
We want more Georges.
Don’t get me wrong, I don’t expect to see crowds clamouring to study levels 2, 3, and 4 in one year.
But we want to see you gaining those qualifications and starting your career in accounting.
So I can offer you an extra £150 off the current price of our combined AAT Levels 2, 3, and 4 course package.
And if you’re not ready to study all three yet, I can offer you an extra £50 off the standalone AAT Level 2 Accounting course (or standalone level 3, or level 4).
Use the checkout code GEORGE150 for AAT levels 2, 3, and 4. Or GEORGE50 for an individual level.
These discount codes are only available for a small number of people and are not widely advertised (please don’t share them).
One last word from George…
“Can you imagine that?
One year ago, I was a disc jockey in Greece without any studies. And eleven months later, without even English being my native language, I work as an accountant in London having almost finished the AAT and having moved forward to the ACCA!”

Why AAT students choose Training Link
We sat down with a few of our former AAT students and asked what they thought about Training Link…
Bieke enrolled on our AAT Complete Course Package…
“My study experience has been really good so far. There’s a lot of material available… It’s not just the course itself, you have a lot of additional resources… tests, assessments, questions, to test yourself.”
“The extra resources gave me the best possible chance of succeeding in my exam… The tutor support was very helpful. Not only could I reach them by email if something wasn’t clear I could also contact them by phone which was really nice and personal.”
