What is a payroll course?

A payroll course can be anything from a one day course on a program like Xero to a Diploma of Payroll Services.  Typically, payroll courses are taught through TAFE or another registered training organisation (RTO). A longer-term course may involve multiple units of competency, and cover a range of course content, including industrial relations, managing payroll systems, payroll training, activity statements, GST and how to use accounting software that may be relevant. 

A payroll course could be helpful for those who want to become:

  • A payroll officer
  • Working in payroll management
  • Working in financial services
  • People creating accounting software
  • Those in HR who may need to understand the payroll process
  • Those who will be working with an accounting system at their work
  • BAS agents or tax agents
  • Bookkeepers and payroll professionals
  • Accounts clerks

How to study payroll courses:

If you’re interested in studying payroll, it’s important to know what training course is right for you.

If it’s a small part of your job, then a more specific short course or training package that teaches a particular skill set, such as how to use particular accounting software like Xero or MYOB may be more suitable. 

Meanwhile, if you’re interested in working as a full-time payroll manager, then a Certificate IV or Diploma in Australia may be more suitable for your needs. The course materials will be more extensive.

There are a number of ways to study, including online courses and part-time study. That means that no matter where you live, whether it be a city like Melbourne, Sydney or Perth, or rural NSW or rural South Australia and still be able to study a payroll course.

Entry requirements vary depending on which RTO you’re interested in enrolling in, so make sure to check with the specific course that you’re interested in, and get started on your future in payroll today!
