Accounting Technicians Ireland, the leading professional body for accounting technicians in Ireland, has conferred certificates of membership to newly qualifying graduates from Cork including Lorraine Healy from Passage West and Dana Maria Sosiade from Blackrock. They recently completed her final year examinations and work experience requirements and graduated among an overall class of 284 new members. They received their certificates from Accounting Technicians Ireland President Bernadette Costello FCA at a special ceremony in Dublin.
Accounting technicians are qualified accounting professionals who work at all levels of finance. They can work in all types of organisations and are widely employed throughout the public sector, industry and commerce and in private accounting practices.
Accounting Technicians Ireland currently has almost 5,000 students and its syllabus is taught in over 80 colleges nationwide.
Gay Sheehan, Chief Executive, Accounting Technicians Ireland, said: “I would like to warmly congratulate this year’s graduates from Cork. The Accounting Technicians qualification is both a valuable investment by our graduates in themselves, but also a fantastic resource for employers in both the public and private sectors.”
“Over 95% of our graduates are currently in employment in all sectors of the Irish economy. The range of skills that they learn during their study and work experience enables them to make a significant contribution to their employer. These valuable financial management skills are particularly in demand given the challenges we currently face.”
Students taking the Accounting Technicians Ireland qualification come from a diverse range of backgrounds, from established professionals to school leavers, to people looking to change career.
