Struggling with the basics? Enrol in Boot Camp!
Many students struggle with accounting because they don't have a strong foundation in the basics. It is essential to have this foundation in place before tackling the Leaving Cert Accounting syllabus. If you're concerned that your foundation is not strong enough, if you struggle with basic double entry book keeping, then we highly recommend you complete Boot Camp.
Boot Camp is available through Chartered Accountant Ireland, Ireland's leading professional accountancy body. Just like our courses on ProTutor, Boot Camp is a fully online course, complete with a downloadable workbook, notes and easy to follow video tutorials. It can be completed by students on their own or under the guidance of a teacher. The programme is free to teachers and costs just €10 for students. To find out more and enrol in Boot Camp, visit:
