Hi Sue, thank you for your question. Depending on your education, work experience and goals, you will need to decide which class you should take. In our How to Become a Certified Bookkeeper article, we have provided you with several programs that are available both in a live classroom setting as well as an online environment.
If you have no formal education in bookkeeping or accounting, the AIPB certification is ideal. However, if you have a degree in Finance or accounting or a related field then you may want to pursue the NACPB program. The details of these certification programs along with others are included in the article mentioned above.
Best of luck,
Crystalynn Shelton, CPA
