My name is Ruth McDougall, I am a part qualified accountant through ACCA (The association of chartered certified accountants), and an ICB (Institute of Certified Bookkeepers) approved learning provider.
I started my accountancy studies many years ago with the ACCA's foundation in accounting and progress from there through the ACCA's fundamental papers and more recently the ACCA's professional papers.
