Certified Bookkeepers are to bookkeeping what CPAs are to accounting: the elite of the profession. Becoming a Certified Bookkeeper can increase your earning potential, enhance your professional status, and give you a decisive edge in any job market. This online program was created by the American Institute of Professional Bookkeepers (AIPB) to prepare experienced bookkeepers for the certification exam at any Prometric Test Center. The AIPB certification is the only national standard for bookkeepers.
The Web-based format of this program will allow you to move at your own pace while learning in the comfort of your own home. The program consists of six separate subject areas:
- Adjusting entries
- Correction of accounting errors (including the bank reconciliation)
- Book and tax depreciation
- Basic payroll
- Merchandise inventory
- Internal controls and fraud prevention
This program includes a set of six workbooks that will help prepare you for each of the exams.
Students will have one year (365 days) from the date of enrollment in the Certified Bookkeeper Online Training Program through ed2go to submit the Application for Certified Bookkeeper Designation form to The American Institute of Professional Bookkeepers. The cost of the exam is included with this program.
Upon registering, you're given an initial six months to complete the program. Should you need more time, you may request a six-month extension at no additional charge.
