Basic Bookkeeping Training

Learn the basics of bookkeeping and see how everything adds up

Course Introduction

Will a basic bookkeeping course help me?   Numbers! Numbers! Numbers!  Wherever you go, you are certain to see them.  On addresses, license plates, phones, prices, money! Numbers connect all of us to each other in many more ways than we can imagine.. Basically, our world centres around numbers. A number of us appreciate working with numbers while others  may be anxious over numbers or even have a phobia about them.  For those who have already recognised and appreciate the influence numbers have on almost everything, you deserve a cookie. Welcome to our Basic Bookkeeping Course!
