  • Bank reconciliation (including fixing errors)

  • Cash coding and Bank rules

  • Settings (including chart of accounts & tracking)

  • Sales & Purchases

  • Contacts


After the training, you’ll be provided with Case Studies and Review questions to work through. This will require about 2 additional hours of self study time. Once you’ve completed the self study exercises you can then sit the 30 minute certification test online – at any time that suits you. A pass mark of at least 80% is required to become Xero Certified.


All content for the test will be covered in the course, but it is handy to get familiar with the demo company before attending – the Certification training assumes you have basic knowledge of Xero functionality.

NZ: The course has a CPD allocation of 4 hours.

Email if you have any questions.



Before you sit the certification course you need to have watched the Xero Partner essentials webinar or video.
