This course introduces the student to payroll record keeping and processing, allowing them to develop the necessary knowledge and skills required to record and process payroll transactions in a semi-manual and computerised environment.

Previous experience with payroll is no essential. The course is open to students with no pervious knowledge of payroll, or students who have worked in a payroll environment but have no accredited payroll qualification
