If you can do the maths then I would wholeheartedly recommend Training Link. I have completed level 2, 3 & 4 plus SAT in just under one year, gaining distinction at all levels. The materials along with the online testing provide a good grounding for the ICB exams. One tip – always attempt all available ICB mocks as these will be perfect preparation for the real exams alongside thorough revision of materials.
Thanks Training Link
I purchased a package of ICB courses with Training Link back in 2015 and have now managed to pass my Level II Bookkeeping, Level III Booking and Accounts, Level IV Advanced Bookkeeping and Accounts, Level III Diploma in Payroll and Diploma in Self-Assessment. Throughout my time with Training Link I have found them to be exceptionally helpful, in particular Bev Roberts who is a special treasure. I don’t think I could have done it without her assistance. I would highly recommend Training Link as your course provider.
Just completed ICB BA4. Found it very difficult but would not have passed without the patience of my tutor, Gary who heads up Training Link and Gill one of the support staff members who is absolutely, brilliant. They are a great team and have kept me on track with kind words and amazing tuition.
I have rated them 5 stars because they are always striving for excellence. Although they want to achieve good results, it is more important that their students have a thorough understanding of the subject.
I also chose them from a recommendation from another satisfied Training Link student.
First class training material and tutor support.
I would very much like to thank Training Link for creating a first class Sage One Accounting training course. Your instruction manual was very easy to follow and understand. I prefer it to webinars or online helps. I have just completed every single task and balanced the accounts to the last penny without asking for any help.
In this case Training Link has lived up to its standards and can be proud of their quality assured distance learning.
Having completed my Level 2 with Training Link, I wanted to continue my studies, so going with Training Link again for my Level 3 was the easy part. The course detail is good and clearly written and published to a professional standard, there are a few typos, but then with the amount of information provided it’s not possible to find all mistakes until there pointed out. Some wording can be hard to understand, and could be more clear on what is to be done or is required, after all if you are doing bookkeeping girl a client you would ring to clear it up. Tutor support is fantastic and by far the best asset that Training Link has, I often work late at night and submit my assignments or mocks and there marked and back the next day. Even sometimes at the weekend. Any questions or help needed is just an email away and a reply is normally only an hour or so away. I would highly recommend Training Link to anyone who wants to start bookkeeping, great value for money, great tutors and staff, great courses.
I wanted to change my career and start my own bookkeeping business. I signed up By December I had passed my Level II and Level III Courses and was able to obtain a practice licence and set up my own business. on the 18th January 2015 I took my Payroll Diploma and I now have 2 more exams to complete for my Level IV. Training Link have been fantastic throughout. All of the office staff, the tutors, the examination markers and the lady who books the exam have given me support beyond my expectations. The Fast Track syllabus makes it easy to progress and the workbooks are very well laid out and easy to understand. I had considered several training providers prior to signing up with Training Link and I am so pleased that I chose them. Without their help and support I would not have been able to complete this course as quickly and would certainly not have ended up with Distinction in both level II and level III. If you are considering going down this route I would not hesitate to pick up the phone and give Training Link a call. They are not pushy, they tell you exactly what their courses contain, and will even send you a trial before you buy.
I don’t have anything negative to say about my learning experience. The course work was clear and concise and the support from the tutor was excellent. Assignments were returned promptly with helpful insights in any areas that were lacking. Thanks!
For someone who was apprehensive about studying from home, or studying at all considering I’m 36 and done no study since school, Training Link not only helped me set up the right MICB package but also provided great support throughout the first stage of the course. The friendly & responsive approach from its staff made me feel at ease and they fielded my questions no matter how silly; they are there to help and make you understand when there’s time you need to fully understand items or tasks. The course material is thorough and very easy to follow. Being from a finance background I felt that even complete beginners could follow the material with ease especially with the way information and tasks were laid out. I’m looking forward to starting level 2 of my ICB course (I’ve just passed level 1 exam) now knowing the support I will receive from Training Link and with the initially apprehensions now long gone. If your like me, and confidence alone might make you feel like your not sure if you can study out of a class, then just go for it as Training Link will get you through it.
I have really enjoyed doing my level 2 bookkeeping with Training Link. They are organised and professional. The course itself is easy to follow and the tasks and assignments, mock exams ensure that you are ready to take your exam with confidence
Work books are clearly written with great use of screen shots. The summary’s at the end of each chapter are great giving concise details of the tasks you have just completed. Swift reply’s re any concerns from tutor are a great feature of training link. Previous training providers I have encountered can take up to 5 days to respond leaving study stalled! The workbooks appear daunting at first but once started are engaging and written in simple easy to follow terms. Would highly recommend this course provided via training link. Professional service, speedy replies and I feel excellent value for money
I have been studying with Training Link for a number of years now and cannot recommend them more highly. My tutors have been fantastic – responding to my emails promptly (within 24 hours, often sooner!), giving clear guidance when needed and both practical and moral support to overcome any hurdles that may arise. The course material, workbooks and assignments are specifically designed to take you logically step-by-step through what you need to learn and the mock exams are excellent preparation for the ICB exams. I have studied both the manual and computerised bookkeeping courses to Level III and have passed all of my exams – I don’t think I would have achieved this without Training Link. Thank you all very much indeed!
It is a great pleasure to take home study course. Even if English is not my native language, I found it easy and fast. Brilliant support of tutors and student support centre. Always fair reports and comments about your work. Fast response to any concerns. I like every minute of my course and I would strongly recommend this to my friends. Big, big thank you.
As a beginner to bookkeeping I have found my tutor to be very patient knowledgeable and helpful in all areas which has put me at ease. Due to the style of tuition I have been able to adapt and improve weekly. I really appreciate the time and hard work that had been afforded me.
From the moment I requested information about bookkeeping courses I knew immediately that this was the company that would help me achieve my civilian qualifications in Bookkeeping . It did not matter whom I spoke to within the company I was always supported and given open and honest advice.
The course material is superb and a dedicated tutor is there to assist me with my studies and at times over the weekend. I started my course seven weeks ago and I have already passed level 1 with distinction 98% and I am booking my Level 2 Examination tomorrow .I have already been notified that my Level 3 workbook is in the post , superb service. The course thus far is all that I expected and I am so pleased that I chose Training – Link.
I have just completed Level 1 in Manual Bookkeeping and I am now ready to take the exam. The course material provided has been exceptional with lots of practical examples and detailed information. My tutor has been so helpful and answered any questions I have had along the way. I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Training Link to anyone and look forward to moving on to Level 2!
I have found them to be extremely helpful and friendly. Not to mention understanding and accommodating. They strive to get the best out of you and are always there to try and motivate and keep you moving forward when you feel like quitting. I really appreciate their time, energy and patience
