A finance professional with a Dublin-based tax advisory company made the impossible possible and enhanced her career through an accounting qualification open to school leavers and mature learners.

Moldovan native Diana Rosior (33) had English as her fourth language when she decided to upskill from processing data to become an accounting technician through the Accounting Technicians Ireland (ATI) Diploma.

The mother of two young children used the institute’s online* option because regular college hours did not suit her.

Now, Diana plans on continuing her studies to becoming a fully qualified accountant.

Thanks to the ATI programme, Diana has gained promotion from her employers, Dublin tax advisors, E-Koncept on Portland Street North, and uses her newly learned skills on a daily basis.

Diana, who settled in Ireland in 2017, got a job collecting and entering data with E-Koncept the following year.

“Over time, I knew I wanted something more, but also that I required an Irish accounting qualification,” said Diana.

“With English as my fourth language, after Romanian, Russian and Italian, and two small daughters to look after, it looked like I was not going to get it.

“But my managers recommended the ATI Diploma and so, I enrolled for the online course in 2020. I had thought that a full-time job was an impossibility for me but resolved to make the impossible possible!”

She continued: “I very much enjoyed the course. It has allowed me take up a new position at work, applying what I have studied. It was exactly what I needed.

“The support from tutors and my employer was excellent.  The programme format is well organised, easy to follow and makes learning enjoyable.

“I chose the online option because normal college hours did not suit me. Flexibility was essential. I could learn and study anywhere, 24 hours-a-day.

“And passing the exams has given me confidence and experience. I would recommend ATI to anyone who wants a career in accounting.

“Now I plan on studying with the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants to become a fully qualified accountant.”

The Accounting Technicians Ireland Diploma is recognised as the fastest pathway to a fulfilling and rewarding professional accounting career.

ATI provides a nationally and internationally recognised accounting qualification, and graduates are employed in industry, commerce, private practice and the public sector.

The highly regarded professional qualification can be obtained in as little as two years, and is open to school and college leavers, mature students and people working in business, industry or small practice but who, as yet, have no formal training. 

The qualification opens a world of employment opportunities to graduates across a broad range of accounting and finance roles and enables students further progress to senior financial management and accountancy posts.
