How many Units/Exams do you have to do for technician level on the NVQ route?

    I am just moving onto it myself,

    Units 8 & 9 - PEV & PCR
    Unit 10 - the dreaded project
    Drafting Financial statements

    Choice of 2? from:
    Cash management
    Business Tax
    Personal Tax
    Audit Procedures

    So do you have 4 exams?

    Depends what ones you pick - Unit 10 is just the proejct writing (just!!)

    Units 8 & 9 are an exam each - I find that strange as they relate to each other and the workbook is combiend for the 2.

    Drafting Financial Statements is an exam and I think both the tax ones are exams.

    Cash management is definitely a simulation and I think Audit procedures is as well.
    I am body swerving the tax units as I have no interest in working in practice ( if I can help it, who knows the way construction is at present)

    Of the compulsory units, PEV, PCR & DFS are exams. Of the 'voluntary' units Auditing and Cash Management are simulations, BTC and PTC are exams. So, a minimum of 3 exams.

    Ok, thanks! Is technician level much harder than intermmediate?

    So they say - only just getting started. My problem will be that it looks like a fair bit of it is for if you want to be a "proper" accountant i.e. doing final accounts and tax or going onto CIMA or ACCA.

    I just want to learn how to do what I do better but it will be an awful waste only to do the costing units etc. and not go for the full qualification.

    It is harder but I wouldn't say it is loads harder. If you got through intermediate without struggling too much you should be fine
