Bookkeeping Basics Course

Course Description

Num­bers! Num­bers! Num­bers! Wher­ever you go, you are bound to see them. On addresses, license plates, phones, prices, and of course, money! Num­bers con­nect us all to each other in many more ways than we might imag­ine. Essen­tially, our world revolves around numbers.

Some of us enjoy deal­ing with num­bers while oth­ers may have a fear of them, or even a pho­bia. For those of you who have already rec­og­nized and appre­ci­ate the impact that num­bers actu­ally have on just about every­thing, you deserve a cookie. Wel­come to Book­keep­ing Basics!

"I have a first degree in Geology and Mining and an M Phil in Environmental Management. I have worked as an administrator most of my life and needed certification in the field. Thank you for a wonderful training experience in the CIB Advanced Human Resource Certificate Program. Not only have you given me a certificate but most importantly opened my eyes to things I never knew, at my own pace and convenience. Looking forward to acquiring more certifications. #IAmSpreadingTheWord”
