|Bookkeeping Basics (.6 CEUs)
Whether for personal or business reasons, bookkeeping is a necessary part of life. This course is designed as an overview of key concepts, bookkeeping practices, and terminology that will help you better utilize bookkeeping software (i.e. QuickBooks, Peachtree, and others). It is not meant to teach you how to become a bookkeeper. Topics include the accounting cycle, starting with an introduction of basic accounting terms and record keeping rules. You will be introduced to double-entry accounting (debits and credits); cash versus accrual accounting; chart of accounts and ledgers; and accounts receivable and accounts payable accounting. You’ll also review financial statements (profit and loss, and balance sheet), how to avoid fraud and embezzlement, and business entity types. Handouts included. Bring notepad and hand-held calculator.
