QuickBooks Training and Certification
QuickBooks training at New Horizons will help you learn all the features that QuickBooks has to offer. Course topics include entering company details and building lists, setting up and managing inventory, recording product sales, creating invoices, setting up and managing bank accounts, managing Assets and liabilities, and payroll.
Once you complete your training, you must pass the QuickBooks Certification exams. QuickBooks recommends updating your certification status every year. Gold Level QuickBooks Certification requires an additional certification in the most current version of QuickBooks Desktop or a QuickBooks Online Certification within the past year.
To maintain Desktop Advanced Certification, you must complete additional training every three years, while Point of Sale Certification and Enterprise Solutions Certification require you to certify every two years. QuickBooks Advanced Online Certification is a little more demanding, and you must complete an exam each year to stay up-to-date with changing technology.
