Introduction to Accounting

The function of accounting in any organisation is to closely monitor the movement of funds in order to determine the financial health of a business and identify ways of increasing profitability. This short course covers the accounting requirements for Australian businesses, describes key accounting concepts and provides the basic skills required to interpret and report on financial activity.

The financial health of a business is of course important, and while most organisations will have dedicated accounting professionals, it is highly valuable for all members to be able to interpret and report on financial activity. The AIM Introduction to Accounting short course, facilitated by experienced industry practitioners based in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, and Adelaide, will assist you to identify your unique leadership style and give you the tools and knowledges to adapt to different situations and needs.

If you’re looking to gain a better understanding of accounting concepts and how to evaluate financial data, but don’t have an accounting or financial background, this is the ideal course for you.
