Corporations and local organizations need qualified bookkeepers, who track all financial transactions: sales, purchases, payments, wages, depreciation, inventory, internal controls and fraud protection.
According to ONET, bookkeepers earn $19.78 per hour, on average. Top bookkeepers' earnings can exceed $60,140 a year.
Three of the top specialized skills found in job postings include accounting, accounts payable/receivable and bookkeeping. The fourth skill requested is QuickBooks®, an accounting software that expands the capabilities of bookkeepers.
QuickBooks® training is included in two short-term training courses at Wake Tech: Intuit QuickBooks Certified User Online and Certified Bookkeeper AIPB Using Intuit QuickBooks Online. Together, they can prepare you for the American Institute of Professional Bookkeepers (AIPB) Certified Bookkeeper certification exam.
Don't have enough money to pay for a course? Right now, Wake Tech's Propel program offers scholarships that cover the cost of registration, fees, books, course-specific supplies and credentialing exams.
The Propel scholarship application is closed and will reopen October 1.
