About AAT Level 4 Course
AAT level 4 is the final level of the AAT qualification. Once you have completed level 4, you will have gained the full AAT Accounting Technician qualification.
Like most qualifications, level 4 is considered a lot harder than the previous levels. Completing the level 4 qualification will give you the knowledge and confidence you need in order to progress onto further qualifications like ACCA, CIMA and ICAEW.
Unlike levels 2 & 3, the assessments will include some written elements to them, meaning you will need a good level of understanding about the different topics covered, so you are able to confidently explain certain concepts of the syllabus in your assessments.
AAT level 4 is made up of 4 mandatory units and 2 optional units:
You need to choose 2 out of a choice of 5 optional units in order to complete the Professional Diploma in Accounting (level 4).
