We are pleased to announce that new bookkeeping and accounting courses are now available and open for enrollment. In addition, we have also added 11 new Self-Paced Tutorial courses to the catalog.

 

Advanced Career Training 

Professional Bookkeeping with QuickBooks 2019 and Payroll Practice and Management (Software Included)

This online course bundle covers all critical areas of bookkeeping and payroll administration. In Professional Bookkeeping with QuickBooks 2019, students will learn how to use QuickBooks in common bookkeeping situations. Payroll Practice and Management provides a foundation for overseeing payroll functions, including worker classification, overtime pay, and tax laws.

The cost of QuickBooks 2019 is included in the course price.

COURSE CODE: GES2036 | SUGGESTED RETAIL PRICE: $3,595


Professional Bookkeeping with QuickBooks 2019 and Payroll Practice and Management

This course bundle has the same content as our software included bundle, but it does not include QuickBooks 2019 software. This version is ideal for students with current access to QuickBooks 2019, whether through their employer or another source.

COURSE CODE: GES2035 | SUGGESTED RETAIL PRICE: $3,495


Who should take these course?

Students pursuing a career in the broader accounting field would benefit from earning both bookkeeping and payroll. These two disciplines are critical for entry-level generalist positions such as Payroll Clerk, Bookkeeping Specialist, and Junior Accountant. 

How are these bundles different from Professional Bookkeeping with QuickBooks 2018 with Payroll Practice and Management?

The new bundles have updated course content that aligns with QuickBooks 2019.

Should I add these titles to the ETPL?

Yes. If you have our other QuickBooks or Payroll Practice and Management courses on the ETPL, these two bundles provide another option for students.

When should I add these titles to the ETPL?

If you plan to add these titles, you should apply for approval immediately. If you need more information on the ETPL submission process, please contact your account manager.

What do I need to do?

If you’ve elected to auto-add new titles to your catalog, then no further action is required. Otherwise, you will need to add them manually in the online administration center. If you’re not sure if you have the auto-add feature set up, contact your Account Manager.
