My Premier Training Account (MyPTA)
With this new resource students can fast track their AAT course effectively. Each student will be provided with their personal login username and password upon enrolment and can start studying within an hour of enrolling!
Premier Training will provide each student with:
Online interactive videos: E-learning videos allow tutors to cover key topics visually. It provides invaluable reinforcement of the subjects covered in the course and helps students by seeing the material as well as reading about it. Students can access the videos anytime from anywhere through the internet instead of relying on DVDs or flash drives, with easy access using mobiles, tablets and laptops.
Online assignments: Our assignments and practice assignments are skills based, allowing you to put into practice what you have learned in theory. They cover the course topics extensively to ensure that students are fully prepared for the AAT assignments.
Each assignment will cover just a few chapter of your study book. We will tell you which chapters of which book you will need to complete for each assignment. You can choose how long you want to study your course and we will prepare a timetable to suit. This timetable will keep you on track and help you achieve your goal in the timescale you have chosen.
Our videos are interactive with integrated tests to ensure the students have absorbed the knowledge effectively. The students will benefit from the ability to pause and rewind and gives the student the advantage of studying at their own pace; something a classroom course cannot offer.
Online live interactive lessons: With the combination of visual and audio, the tutor can mimic the one-to-one experience of the classroom and deliver clear, concise instructions but still have the flexibility of distance learning. You can ask questions throughout and are tested to ensure you have absorbed the knowledge correctly and fully. Our live lessons run weekly on a range of topics but if you cannot attend, they are recorded and stored in MyPTA so you can access them at anytime and as often as you like.

Assessment and Examinations
AAT will assess your knowledge and understanding of the skills you’ve developed by a series of computer based assessments (CBA). You can take the CBA’s as and when you are ready, as soon as you are fully prepared.
Computer Based Assessment (CBA):
Computer based tests (CBT) are online assessment that you will take at an AAT approved assessment centre and for most units the Level 2 and 3 results are available as soon as you have completed the test and should be provided by the invigilator/exams officer. Level 4 results are available within six weeks of the assessment date.
There are also two optional ways to complete units:
Recognition of prior learning (RPL), where we take into account your previous study. This is available for all units. Workplace evidence (WPE) is only accepted for a limited number of units where specified.
How to book your CBT:
The booking procedure for a CBP works a little differently which is explained upon enrolment and your course advisor will assist you with this if required.
In the event you fail your assessment you will be able to pay and re-book the assessment three full working days after. Premier Training will continue to support you at no further cost.
On successful completion of each level you will receive a certificate directly from the AAT.
