In-class hands-on QuickBooks Training

In our hands-on QuickBooks training courses, you’ll learn how to perform common day-to-day QuickBooks transactions by first learning how to enter the transactions and then trying them yourself. We’ll give you plenty of practice so you can return to the office and begin using your new skills with confidence! We’ll also give you access to our “let me try” application simulations so you can continue to practice your new skills in the comfort of your home or office!

In order to get the most out of our in-class hands on QuickBooks training, students should bring a laptop with QuickBooks Pro 2015 (Canadian edition) already installed.
