Let me start by thanking you for uploading these Quickbooks tutorials. While I’m in the process of watching the first video, I can already see how valuable the information will be. While I am a college graduate, I’m a novice when it comes to Bookkeeping and Quickbooks, and would like to know the recommended course of action to pursue. I have researched various schools, Intuits courses, ed2go, and others. However, I’m undecided about which program will offer comprehensive training in an online environment. It is my opinion that Intuit probably offers the most comprehensive training out of other programs, however, a 2-day training course just doesn’t seem to be a sufficient amount of time for a novice, like myself, to grasp the multitude of information that is written in the catalog. Do you have any recommendations/or advice that you can pass along? Do yo offer training?
Looking forward to your response! Thanks!
I’m glad that you are enjoying our free QuickBooks Course! There are a variety of ways to learn how to use QuickBooks Online. I wrote an article that includes training courses, workshops and materials that you can find both free and paid options. See the link to this article below. At the end of the day the training that you need really depends on what your end goal is. Do you want to work as a bookkeeper for one employer or do you want to start offering bookkeeping services to your own clients?
If you want to become proficient in QuickBooks so that you can work for an employer, I recommend that you pursue the QuickBooks Certified User program. However, if you plan to support your own clients, I recommend that you go through the QuickBooks ProAdvisor program. Both of these are self-paced study programs that you can do on your own for free. If you want to learn QuickBooks in a live environment, take the 2 day Intuit course. I do offer training (live and online) through UCLA which you can find more info on in the article below. Finally, if you’re interested in a private training session with me, send me a DM via Twitter. My Twitter handle is CrystalynnPens.
Best of luck,
