This course provides hands-on instruction on how to set up QuickBooks as a system for small businesses. Students will learn about the types of information they need to track in their business and will become familiar with the most common tasks required, as well as the more advanced functions of the software.

Students will learn how to create company files and deal with more advanced tasks for receivables, payables, inventory and payroll. Upon completion of this course, students will be advanced QuickBooks users and will be fully prepared to write an Intuit QuickBooks Certified User Examination.
