Testimonials

  • I found studying by Distance Learning a lot better than I thought it would be. The text books provided with the course are excellent, and I was able to complete the course a lot quicker than I would have been able to following a college-based curriculum.

    Rosemary Bishop

    I would highly recommend distance learning as a great way to study. You need to be self-motivated but that’s great for me and it gives me the flexibility to fit studying around everything else. I can truly study at my own pace and spend more time on the areas that I find more challenging, rather than having to go at the speed of the tutor. Groves Training Services is a really committed provider which offers an excellent all round service. They have experienced, understa ...

  • In 2011 I enrolled at the UWI Open Campus in Barbados to pursue the Level 3 Diploma in Bookkeeping & Accounting.  Taking that first course was like a refresher for me which led to me taking another course.  As the studies progressed they became challenging but with the help of my tutor Mr. Brathwaite and Louise Scott my personal attendant at IAB it became easier and led to my successful completion of three Level 3 exams. I even attained my MIAB designation.  ...

    Suzanne Greene MIAB

    I decided to setup a small business providing book-keeping and payroll services shortly after my retirement.  My previous experience had given me a background in administration and financial management but no direct experience of industry.  Membership of the IAB proved invaluable in getting the project off the ground. Not only did they endorse my qualifications;  I have since achieved FIAB; but they also provided a range of essential services such as a Practice ...

  • Having worked in my own business for many years and being the one responsible for looking after the bookkeeping side of things, when I sold my business some years ago I thought that this was a skill that I could put to good use so Total Bookkeeping services was born and started out at the age of 57 on a new career path. Having some bookkeeping skills I wanted to become qualified and provide my clients with the best possible quality of work so I searched for a training provid ...

    David Wright (MIAB)

    As a member of "IAB", I find the services provided by this organisation excellent.  It helps me to achieve my work goals and keep up to date with current financial information. I really enjoyed the newsletter that I read at my own pace.  I find all the IAB staff extremely supportive.  The CPD structure is so flexible that it fits in with my other commitment. I would definitely recommend membership to anyone.What a fantastic organisation!

  • I completed my IAB Level 1 Computerised Accounting for Business with Sage through my Adult Education College in Dec 2013 which I found to be OK but I didn’t feel that I got anything extra out of sitting in a classroom environment. I then considered learning through a distance learner and did a lot of research on the companies that actually run your courses. As Goldings were a Silver awarded company, I called them. I spoke with Di whose telephone manner was impeccable. ...

    Tracey Stewart

    There are several things I like about being a member of the IAB, but I think the most important one to me personally is that the organisation is about people.  Helping people, training people and encouraging people to be great bookkeepers. I'm certain my business wouldn't have survived it's first year without their guidance and reassurance.
