Bookkeepers oversee a company’s financial data and compliance.
Bookkeepers oversee a company’s financial data and compliance by maintaining accurate books on accounts payable and receivable, payroll, and daily financial entries and reconciliations. They perform daily accounting tasks such as monthly financial reporting, general ledger entries, and record payments and adjustments.
Certified Bookkeepers are to bookkeeping what CPA’s are to accounting; the cream of the profession. The four modules in this certificate program focus on preparing you for the AIPB Certified Bookkeeper exams by helping you master the skills and knowledge required for certification.
- Bookkeeping Practices
- Mastering Correcting and Adjusting Entries
- Mastering Depreciation and Payroll
- Mastering Inventory, Internal Controls and Fraud Prevention
Students who successfully complete all four Bookkeeping modules in the program will be awarded a certificate of completion. To achieve the Certified Bookkeeper credential and designation, students can submit an application to the American Institute of Professional Bookkeepers (AIPB) at https://aipb.org and pass the credentialing exams. The credential is optional, but recommended for employment. Exam fees are not included. This program is offered in conjunction with Naugatuck Valley Community College.
