It is a fact that Universities teach accounting for the largest 2% of the companies out there. While corporate accounting makes up a large number of accounting jobs, the remaining 98% of companies with fewer employees create far more jobs than large companies.
The Universal Accounting® Professional Bookkeeper™ course was originally created by Alf Bostrom when he became frustrated that no course exists that teaches the hands-on process of doing small business accounting.
This accounting course has evolved over the last 25 years into a comprehensive course in doing the day-to-day bookkeeping of a small business. The principles also apply exceptionally well to larger companies as well as our graduates have found. You not only get the theory taught in college, but you are taught by practical examples of real-world companies. From a bakery to a car lot, you will do books for 9 businesses and see how they are similar and how they differ.
Upon successful completion of the accounting course, you will earn the Professional Bookkeeper™ designation, allowing you to add PB to the end of your name as evidence that you understand small business accounting at a very practical level.
