AITI Charted Tax Adviser (CTA) qualification
In order to be an expert tax professional whose job it is to advise chief executives, financial controllers, managing directors, small and medium business owners, and private individuals on the important commercial and life decisions they are about to make you need to qualify as an AITI Chartered Tax Adviser (CTA).
To become an AITI Chartered Tax Adviser (CTA), you need to obtain the AITI qualification.
Tax Technician Qualification
Our Tax Technician (TMITI) qualification is the only tax compliance qualification in Ireland. Prospective students must hold a Level 5 qualification on the National Framework of Qualifications or equivalent (Leaving Certificate).
The Tax Technician (TMITI) course is one year part-time
No training contract required
You are not required to obtain a training contract to become an AITI Chartered Tax Adviser (CTA) or Tax Technician.
Graduates from all backgrounds can enroll on the AITI qualification.
Applicants must hold, at a minimum, an undergraduate degree at honours level (Level 8 of the National Qualifications Framework) or equivalent. Candidates who do not hold an honours degree or equivalent may be considered on a case-by case basis, through the recognition of work based learning.
It is not necessary to have studied business or legal disciplines before undertaking the AITI qualification. Engineers, scientists and teachers have become highly successful tax consultants. However, if candidates have studied law, accounting or tax previously, they may benefit from exemptions. Exemptions are not subject to time limits.
The AITI Registered Tax Consultant course is broken into three Parts, assessed through a mixture of continuous assessment and examinations. Classes run in several locations around the country and we run both winter and summer courses. Click here to see the summer 2011 timetables.
