Success for Si­mon with top marks in ac­count­ing ex­ams

Wicklow People (West Edition) - - NEWS -

WICK­LOW based-ma­ture stu­dent se­cured one of the top marks in the coun­try in the Diploma for Ac­count­ing Tech­ni­cians pro­gramme. Si­mon Sheri­dan (40) from Aughrim has just sat his first ex­ams in his Char­tered Ac­coun­tancy stud­ies af­ter de­cid­ing to con­tinue his ed­u­ca­tion.

‘I’m work­ing in Copsey Mur­ray Char­tered Ac­coun­tants in Ark­low, and also pur­su­ing my stud­ies on­line,’ said Si­mon.

‘The Ac­count­ing Tech­ni­cians Ire­land course was fab­u­lous and gave me the per­fect foundation to re­alise that I loved the area and wanted to fur­ther my ca­reer in it. The course also al­lowed me four ex­emp­tions in the mod­ules I have to com­plete over the next three and a half years, be­cause I had them com­pre­hen­sively cov­ered with the ATI.’

‘I was only ex­pect­ing to learn about ac­coun­tancy, but I also cov­ered business man­age­ment, ethics and a lot more that would as­sist any­one in their fu­ture op­tions.’

Ac­count­ing tech­ni­cians work at all lev­els of fi­nance through­out the pri­vate and pub­lic sec­tor.
