Certified for today’s accounting environment
Accounting in the 21st century requires more than information on GAAP standards or an eye for detail—students need important computing abilities. Intuit QuickBooks, the business chief in administrative bookkeeping programming for business visionaries and a private company, gives a straightforward stage for students to get a handle on bookkeeping ideas while sharpening skills in the most pervasive accounting application in independent ventures today. Students can approve their QuickBooks information by turning into an Intuit QuickBooks Certified User (QBCU).
Moreover, QuickBooks Certified User test vouchers will presently incorporate admittance to both the QuickBooks Desktop and QuickBooks Online tests so candidates can exhibit their skills in whatever version of QuickBooks they prefer.
Distinguish your school’s business, accounting, finance, and entrepreneur program
A recent Certiport survey revealed that 84% of accounting instructors at two-year colleges believe students who are preparing for an accounting career should be conversant in QuickBooks. Said one respondent: “Many students now learn QuickBooks as they learn bookkeeping or accounting…You might start every bookkeeping or accounting course with it.”
Building the business coursework to support the achievement of the Intuit QuickBooks Certified User (QBCU) credential increases the value of academic programs and provides your institution with additional recruiting tools.
