Understanding Bookkeeping Training

Transforming finance training

Understanding Bookkeeping Training .

A highly practical case study driven training course designed to ensure you understand bookkeeping and how accounting works.  Even though accounting software such as SAGE, Quickbooks, Oracle and SAP do a lot of the “heavy lifting” there is still a need to be able to understand the debits and credits and see what is happening “under the hood”.

Who should attend this Bookkeeping Course?

For a manager in an operational role – to understand finance you don’t actually need to know anything about bookkeeping.  However, some people find themselves in roles where they actually need to roll their sleeves up and obtain a better understanding of accounting and accounting processes which is when it is helpful to obtain formal bookkeeping training.

Understanding Bookkeeping training is recommended if you work in a finance related role but have no interest in pursuing a qualification, or you may be considering a more formal qualification and want to dip your toe in the water.  We often find that finance graduates go on this course prior to their formal qualification.
