Hi Stephanie, you’ve got several options when it comes to becoming a certified bookkeeper. The American Institute of Professional Bookkeepers (AIPB) has a self-paced study program to become certified. You don’t need any formal education and the work experience you already have will count towards the required work experience needed to obtain certification.
If you’ve never taken a bookkeeping course, you should probably start there. You can find these courses at your local community college or continuing education programs. We’ve provided a few options in the article on How to Become a Certified Bookkeeper.
Best of luck,
Crystalynn Shelton, CPA
