The Bookkeeping Certificate can be completed in one year of full-time study at 13 credits per semester. It provides the student with focused instruction in introductory accounting theory and practice, accounting software (QuickBooks), and sales and payroll taxes. There is also emphasis on accounting for non-profit and government agencies, and spreadsheets used in business decision-making. 

The graduate is prepared for entry-level bookkeeping positions in both the private and public sectors, such as accounts receivable/payable clerks, payroll clerks, and county or town account clerks and bookkeepers. All the courses listed in the certificate can be transferred to our A.A.S. degree in Business: Accounting as part of the core curriculum.
