Over the years, I have attended a number of schools and I want you to know that I’ve enjoyed this one the most. You’ve not only made it interesting as well as educational, you have the best systems of teaching I ever experienced. You brought each lesson alive with personal experience. Thank you so much. I also feel very secure in the support system you offer after completion of the course.

Katherine Leon

Great practical course providing you with the skills and self confidence to go out and build your own bookkeeping/accounting service.

B. Pace

I reconmend UAC to anyone who wants to understand accounting principles, find out about opportunites in the accounting field, get practical experience in preparing financial statements, recording transatives, etc.
The principals in this accounting center have extensive and
impression accounting are denteals and experience in a wide variety of business.
I have been greatly impressed with the support, interest and genuine regard for their students success and highly recommend this programe.

Bette Young

Because of all your good training, I now have two
clients and am working on a third before I’ve even sent out my letters. I just took your advice to contact firms in the paper who needed bookkeepers and used my resume to get in the door.

I am so sold on Universal, David. In interviews I’ve spent a lot of time explaining who Universal is, and it’s paying off.

Lee Bonacker

This was an excellent program. I really liked the way it was presented. I also appreciated the personal attention that was given. It was a very practical approach to doing accounting. Thank you so much.

Loarlee Pearce

This course was excellent in every aspect, the material was concise accunate, interesting. The hands on approach kept things interesting at all times. I would recccomend this course to anyone interested in finance.

Spencer Frankel

I was very pleased with the training I received at Universal Accounting Center. I had done bookkeeping for six years and was amazed how little I really knew. After graduating from Universal, I have a lot more confidence in my capabilities.

Diane Murray

I took accounting in college and I learned more in these 4 weeks than I learned in college.

Kathy Farnsworth

The course has been well worth the money. I am glad I took this class and am excited to start getting clients.

L. Broadhead

Words simply cannot express how much I learned and how much I enjoyed the UPB workshop. I left SLC yesterday feeling an amazing empowerment, knowing that the process of building my accounting practice has only just begun and that the sky is the limit. With the excellent guidance, advice, and education I received this past weekend, I now feel ready to take on the task of building the best accounting practice that I possibly can (and as quickly as I can, too!). Meeting the other participants was also an inspiration. Thanks for an amazing experience and event that was definitely, without a doubt, the best use of my weekend.

Jessica Salzman

After starting the courses with absolutely no background in either accounting or bookkeeping I find that I am prepared to begin the accounting and bookkeeping for a construction corporation my son and I own.

Edward Calton

This class has for surpassed my expectations. This class has been a lot of fun. I would certainly refer my friends and family to Universal Accounting Center.

Jennifer Nisonger

U.A.C. was great. It was much more than I expected. The education I received was very valuable and I am more than happy that I decided to take the course.

Kellie Tuione

The primary strength of this course is the hands-on work and the well-organized materials. The value to me is primarily in filling the gap between accounting theory and real world applications.

Everett Merrill

This class was extremely informative. It definitely surpassed my expectations. It was very fast paced, but not overwhelming. Thank you for a great experience!

Suzy Gustafson

Not being one with a lot of accounting background, I found that the course work was more that adequate for me and will sustain me as I develop a more knowledgeable background in this discipline.

Wayne Sayer

I want to thank you and Allan for all of your work. Getting through the hassle of the financing paid off tremendously. As you are aware, I finished the course in two weeks of off-and-on studying, and I took the practice tests and final examination the same evening getting a 100% on the final examination. When you told me that I was in the elite few, that made me feel SO proud and excited about the whole process.

After teaching for fifteen years, and after taking an income tax preparation course and working through tax season this past year, I began heavily investigating Universal Accounting’s program. I had majored in economics in college with an emphasis in accounting. I was a treasurer for several organizations, was a manager at a McDonald’s, and did bank audit work for a couple of summers about 15 years ago. I was looking at my chiropractor’s bulletin board where his clients leave business cards. I noticed there was no accounting professional listed. Noticing that out loud, the massage therapist who works there asked me what I was talking about. I explained to her how I was thinking about starting my own accounting/bookkeeping/tax preparation business. She urged me to do so—because her husband needed someone to do his back taxes.

Making the decision to go through with it, I contacted Universal Accounting about their program. I purchased the package and anxiously awaited for the time when the package would arrive. While I was zooming through the course, I realized that I COULD do this.

After taking the course, I spent the remainder of my summer vacation preparing the forms, buying business cards, and letting the marketing get rolling. I also took an on-line Notary Public course. In Florida, we have access to a website that informs us publicly of new businesses that are starting up as their articles or fictitious licenses are filed with the State. I began accessing the website weekly, using the information to send out a welcome letter and business cards.

In two weeks time, I received a call from a new business owner. He and his wife were going to start a paving business, but their mother was going to do the bookkeeping. They asked me to set up the chart of accounts, advise them of a software package to use, and go over the accounting with their mother. She felt uncomfortable because she has done church accounting for 15 years, but did not know where to get started with a business. So, I have become a consultant to this company, and I go in quarterly to check her work.

Still sending out letters and business cards, one of my potential clients gave my business card to a friend who needed to find a new bookkeeper. I landed my BIG client. I am doing weekly payroll for about 50 employees in addition to setting up his books from scratch. His former bookkeeper—who supposedly had 20 years of bookkeeping experience—was putting funds into wrong accounts, not reconciling the accounts, and was giving him balance sheets with negative checking account balances that kept getting out of hand. We talked about what I could do for him. After working the numbers, he agreed to my price and I am off. If I get three more clients of his magnitude, I could quit my current job and “be my own boss” earning the same amount of money and working 5 hours a month per client.

My third current client is also done on a contractual, as-needed basis. One of my colleagues’ mother is a principal who is working on her doctoral dissertation. She needed someone who could do some “computer work” for her. So, I am doing some document preparation and data analysis. Although not technically accounting work, my advertising has led me to another client who is assisting in supplementing my income.

I am taking additional tax preparation classes so that I can assist my clients in preparing their personal and corporate income taxes come January. In that, I am generating some additional income by offering to prepare taxes.

So, in summary, after taking your course, I got some additional accounting information, I got some great marketing techniques, and I have gotten three clients in two months time will result in $10,000 per year of extra income that I did not have before I bought your training program.

Thanks for all of your help!

Paul Casual

I love love loved your course!!!!!!!!! So many people need this course and I dream of teaching bookkeeping to others.

After 25 years in the bookkeeping business, I have finally found someone who can teach bookkeeping/accounting and make it SIMPLE AND FUN! Again, love love it!! Thank Alan Bostrom for his wisdom and courage to pursue his dream in developing this home course thus providing a simple and economical way of helping all of us that didn’t have the opportunity to go to college and obtain a degree. And had to graduate from the School of Hard Knocks with a Masters Degree. Unfortunately, that Degree is not a recognized “Acceptable Degree.”

Thank you very much for all your help.

Sherrie Mckinley

I would recommend this course to anyone. A “AAA” Rating

Charles Johnson, CPA

My experience over the past four weeks was a very good experience. I feel like the class was very well taught, as well as being very impressed with the books and information that was provided for learning and reference purposes. It was very impressed.

Seth Olschewski

It has now been only two years since I invested in the Universal Accounting Program. I purchased the whole system including Bookkeeping, Tax, QuickBooks and Universal Practice Builder. In addition I also purchased the coaching.

At that point I had just opened Expert Tax Solutions, Inc and focused on tax accounting, bookkeeping and QuickBooks. In three short tax seasons I have built up to over 250 new clients from ground zero. It is a dream comes true. In addition to this I now have six new bookkeeping clients and numerous consulting jobs with Quick Books clients.

I just have to let you know that I don’t think I would have had the guts to pursue this dream if it were not for your program. The training is wonderful, but the coaching is necessary as well. The confidence that I received from the knowledge that if I really encounter something that is beyond me, there was a team to coach me through it was the key to my success.

My tax practice is now approaching $50,000 in revenue in the third tax season. You were right! The demand is unbelievable for good, conscientious tax professionals, this I know first-hand! Thanks again for being such an important part of my business success! I am glad I invested it has really paid off!

Lori Rademacher, President

This is an excellent course to advance your self confidence, self esteem, and the knowledge needed to start up and run an accounting service. Thanks.

Nellie Parsons

I found Universal Accounting Course to be very informative, to the point, and would recommend it highly.

Okay Harmon

It was great to see the overall picture of how accounting “puzzles” are put together. I feel this class was very informative.

Kami Barben

I found the class very appropriate for people who don’t have any background in accounting.

Francisco Portilla

The over all course was excellent and most informative.
Thank you a very posititive experience.

Beverly Bartnicki

Thank You very much, Thank You very much, Thank You very much, Thank You very much, Thank You very much,

Leticia Bishop

The merit of this couse cannot be merely stated here. My accounting courses at the university might have filled graduation requirements, but left me with little or no practical experience, knowledge of apllications or priciples. Universal Accounting has provided me with a workable and useable base of the priciples necessary to make bookkeeping and accounting an important and potentially valuable skill.

Keith Godfrey

Because of Universal Accounting we are financially doing great and our dreams are becoming reality.

Dear Allen:

I just wanted to drop you a quick note to thank you very much for allowing
me to purchase the “In the Black” business cards as a stand alone item. I
know that they are usually only available through the purchase of the
Client Generator program, so I want you to know how much I appreciate you
allowing me to purchase them separately.

I also want to thank you for the way my life has changed in the last year
that I have been associated with Universal Accounting. I really enjoyed
learning from you. You are a fantastic instructor. The bookkeeping course
was great. I’m still going through the tax preparer program. I haven’t
moved as fast through that program as I have a lot of work to do from the
bookkeeping clients that I have acquired through the bookeeping program.
Too bad you don’t teach the tax preparation course also.

Among the many positive experiences I have had with Universal Accounting,
none is more enjoyable or appreciated than my association with your
employee Angie Dennis. Throughout the past year, Angie has been in touch
with me regularly to not only monitor my progress with the courses, but
also to share in my successes that I was having acquiring clients. She was
genuinely enthusiastic about what I was doing and it was greatly
appreciated. She always goes the extra mile for me.

To sum up Allen, I just want to say thank you for everything you and your
company have done for me to change my life for the better. The next step
is to be able to quit my job and pursue this business on a full-time
basis. I’m almost there. It shouldn’t be much longer now. Hopefully, only
a few more months.

Thank you again, Allen and may God Bless you and your family.

Very truly yours,

Pete Marchiano

Pete Marchiano

This course work has been very informative and well taught. Ever since I graduated in accounting several years ago, I have only worked with computers. My experience in doing accounting by hand has been limited. This course has leaped tremendously in that one area. I have also learned a great deal how to solicit new clients in order to set up a new accounting business. Thank you for this class. I would highly recommend it to anyone who has a desire to learn more about accounting.

Scott Barhold has been performing magic nearly all of his life. He started with simple tricks in front of family and friends when he was a boy, and even performed on stage after high school. Today, Barhold likes to start his Universal Accounting Client Generator Seminars with a magic trick, turning a balloon into a box of money showing the magic he can deliver to his accounting clients.

“Unlocking profit is no magic trick,” Barhold said. “Most people have not been trained to do it right.”

Barhold found Universal Accounting through an ad on Craigslist and attended a seminar in Daytona Beach, Florida in February of 2008. He was seeking new ideas and proven techniques to help grow his existing accounting business, called Business Resolutions. He left the seminar invigorated and finished the Universal Practice Builder (UPB) program, a self-paced workshop consisting of eight DVDs, in just one weekend. Next he took the UPB Live seminar, an in-person weekend workshop by Universal Accounting, which energized him even more.

“Participating in the UPB Live was like playing in the Super Bowl, versus watching it,” he said. Barhold said before he found out about Universal Accounting, he had been losing clients. Now, after using the information learned at the UPB and UPB Live Workshops, his closing rate is about 28 percent.

“They taught me a different way to close a deal,” he said. He explained that in his urgency to find clients before attending the Universal Accounting Seminar, he was dramatically reducing his rates, accepting payment after the work was done, and practically begging people to have him do the books. “I was in front of the wrong people and was doing a lot of work for nothing. Now I have people calling me, telling me, `I’m a friend of so-and-so and I need you to help me like you’ve helped them.'”

The first customer Barhold was able to help after completing the program was a company that had been very unhappy with their accountant. “They were paying late fees, couldn’t get the information they wanted, or even visits from their accountant,” he said. Barhold explained that with the knowledge he had gained through the Universal Accounting programs, he was able to sign this new client in one meeting.

“Universal Accounting taught me how to relate my knowledge of accounting to the things that are meaningful to small business owners,” he said. “It’s not a pitch; it’s explaining how I can help them.”

In 2008, Barhold set a revenue goal for Business Resolutions of $72,000. “If I didn’t make my revenue goal,” he said, “I was going back to my old job.” Barhold was able to achieve his revenue goal two months early, and ultimately exceeded it by more than $15,000.

Business Resolutions is on track to make $97,000 in revenue in 2009, during an economic slowdown, when many companies have been struggling to stay in business. For 2010, Barhold’s revenue goal is $125,000 and to hire two data entry clerks and bookkeepers. To help him meet these revenue and staffing goals, Barhold plans to host six-to-eight Universal Accounting Client Generator Seminars.

“At this point in my career, it’s not about the money, it’s about the people you help.”

Scott Barhold

I feel I have learned a great deal.

Kenneth Larsen

This course taught me everything I needed to feel confident as an accountant. The instructors were always willing to help and spend extra time on anything that you did not understand or felt uncomfortable with. I have and will continue to recommend this course to anyone interested in the accounting field.

Cindi West

I was hired within 15 minutes.

Bruce Bushman

This course has been a valuable learning experience in accounting and in personal development.

I just wanted to take the time to say thank you for all of your help with what is now the business I have always dreamed of owning and operating- my own accounting firm on my time. You’ll be glad to know that in the time since I completed the course, I have gone from one client, a good friend of mine, to 27 clients in a matter of just 8 months. I’m very, very busy, but that’s the way I’ve chosen to have things. You can expect to see them at Universal as well, to get the same training that helped me to build my business. I’m finally realizing the potential that I always knew I had. It’s been a dream for some time to own my own business, to offer services to others in ways that I now can better than ever. I’m looking forward to complete financial independence, and the opportunity to spend time with family whenever I want. I now feel that I have the skills and education to go wherever I want to take myself, and that’s the realization of a lifelong pursuit.

Vilia Van Tonder

I have been greatly helped by the contents of this course. I will be opening up my own practice soon. I have looked at several other bookkeeping options. This course offers far more than one I looked at in California. Being a graduate in accounting, I have still learned a lot and feel very confident that I can do it.

Steven Spencer

With my accounting background this class has taken me to the next step. I appreciate your personality and method of presentation.

Kathy Bentzien

I was very satisfied with this course. I am very satisfied and confident that I will be a good bookkeeper. I’m really happy I took this course. I have always wanted to learn accounting and bookkeeping. This is a very easy class to understand and get the hang of.

Tamara Bell

Not only did I learn everything I needed to know about doing accounting for any small business, but I also found a confidnece I didn’t think I had.

Jennifer MCazier

I can recommend this class to any of my friends. If anyone is debating whether to take this class or not, give it a try! I’m glad I took this course over some college classes at this point in my life.

Kaye N

I would recommend this accounting class to anyone. It was very well structured and flowed right along.

Lois Brown

i had 2 years of accounting at a prestigious college in New York city. I also have 2 years experience doing payroll, accounts receiveable and accounts payable and yet I got more out of UAC’s course in 4 weeks than I did at the universities.

Israel Teischer

The bookkeeping course brought theory into reality for me.

Joan Ruff

I have been very impressed with the quality of the knowledge presented to me in this course. I have and will continue to recommend this course to friends and fellow business owners.

Mikki Cabrera

In November of last year, Angel Vincent quit her day job. She was a manager of finance with a major non-profit health organization, and was doing well. The problem? The higher she climbed the corporate ladder, the more unbalanced her life became. It seemed ironic that the better her career, the more hours was dedicating to it; she found herself with little time for herself and her family. Angel knew that the flexibility she craved would only come in launching her own financial practice.

Angel has a strong accounting background; she earned her bachelor’s degree in accounting over 12 years ago. But she didn’t know how to start and run her own business. That’s when she decided to enroll in Universal Accounting’s training programs, and boy, did she enroll. She began with the Professional Bookkeeper Program and the Professional Professional Bookkeeper’s Guide to QuickBooks. Months later, she added the Professional Tax Preparer Program and the Universal Practice Builder program.

Now, just months after quitting her job, Angel has a total of 22 regular accounting clients and 23 tax clients, and she continues to get referrals. These are just a few of the benefits she enjoys after experiencing Universal’s quality training. She explains that other perks include “confidence in the specialty of small-business accounting and taxes…and QuickBooks knowledge too. …But I would not have known where to start when I meet with someone [or] how to price my services if it was not for the UAC marketing techniques.”

She enjoys other perks that come from full-time self employment as well. Angel says that her favorite thing about managing her own financial practice is “Freedom! Freedom to choose my clients, freedom to set my own hours, freedom in my salary because I choose how much work and for what fee! Plus, the commute is great (I work out of my home, [and while I] visit clients in the field…most of the work is done in my extra bedroom).”

Angel credits her success to Universal’s training programs. She is seen by clients as a proactive financial professional that routinely demonstrates their business’ fiscal health. She explains, “I don’t just do their books—I help them understand what is happening in their business so they can make better decisions. I hear all the time from my clients that they never had the help/interaction/analysis from their prior bookkeepers/accountants.”

Angel has been so swamped with tax season that she hasn’t yet been able to earn her professional certifications or begin the Universal Practice Builder program, which she plans on doing as soon as the tax deadline passes. Once she does, Angel anticipates that it won’t be long before she’s making more than she did in the corporate world and happily recommends Universal’s programs to like-minded individuals. She advises other students to “trust the program. The lessons are explained in a way I never was taught in college; they are explained in a way that is easy to understand. And trust your UAC advisors—use their knowledge and expertise! They are there to assist you with the proven method.”

Angel Vincent

I loved the course.

Susan Dixon

I wish I had taken this class before I opened my business. The knowledge gained would have been very useful. This course taught me accounting principles never taught in my college accounting courses.

J. Tomlinson

I want to express my deep appreciation for this course. Many courses only lead you to one type of employment field. Universal’s course fits a variety of people in different goal situations. The sky is the limit.

Ann Richerson

I have experienced difficulty finding “full charge” bookkeepers. I have found that many individuals who claim to be bookkeepers have experience with some aspect of accounting, such as accounts receivable, but they do not have a knowledge of the complete accounting cycle. Therefore, I have often been unable to find a person with the necessary skills.
After reviewing The Basic Accounting and Bookkeeping course offered by The Accounting and Bookkeeping Center, I have concluded that it will give students the knowledge of the accounting cycle, as well as the computer skills, that are needed to serve my clients. Students who complete this course will have the training necessary for entry level employment in my firm.

Michael Fisher, CPA

I am so excited to get started. This has really turned my life around and I finally have a sense of direction in my life. I am excited for my future. Thanks for everything.

Julee Hayes

I purchased the course from Universal Accounting for the purpose of renewing my CPA license. I was delighted to discover that this course renewed and refreshed the skills I acquired in my Masters Degree program, as well as the many years of experience I have as a CPA. The best part of the course for me were the tapes on marketing my services. I sat down and listened to numerous strategies for marketing accounting services, and a flood of creative ideas flowed into my brain along with the actual nuts and bolts of how to build my practice. I also discovered a variety of other uses for the course.
I use the course to screen potential employees. I can easily attest that the purchase of this course has been one of the best investments I have made in my career as a CPA. I would highly recommend this course to anyone who is serious about establishing or expanding a career in accounting.

Wayne Reeves, CPA

My current clients have recognized the changes and appreciate them greatly.

S. Christensen

I was amazed how practical this course was, and surprised how much I learned. Having an accounting degree and over 17 years experience in accounting, I didn’t realize how much I didn’t know.

This is well worth the time and money, and you will be benefited from this class for years to come.

Philip Lufkin

This class will make a dream come true- having a working, profitable, meaningful business at home. I will be able to use my years of experience to “stay alive” and to benefit others.

Thanks so much!

Linda Clements

I wish I had taken this class before I opened my business. The knowledge gained would have been very useful. This course taught me accounting principles never taught in my college accounting courses.

Ken,

Just a quick note to thank you for your prompt reply, patience, professionalism and cooperation in helping me with the Mod. 1 QuickBooks download yesterday.

Again, I have learned more from UA than I did attending two private colleges!

The entire course was excellent. I have some previous accounting experience, but was constantly amazed at how well the information was presented–in a way that helped everything click together. It was wonderful!

Sheri Hemple

Thank you for the new opportunity

Darwin Thompson

I am so excited to get started with my own accounting and bookkeeping service. This course has given me the training, materials, and confidence I need to be a success.

Cherie Lee

I have attended most accounting marketing workshops in the USA. This is by far the best. (Information was good and on point—not fluff). Best, succinct info.

Don Henderson

I have received 5 clients since receiving the Universal Accounting training

Valerie Cooper

I didn’t have the confidence to start m own business. I was sceptical. Universal accounting gave me the confidence I needed and I did not find one single negative thing about the course or the people at Universal accounting. I would recommend this course to anyone interested in accounting!

Monique Potter

This course was very informative. I learned more about certain aspects of accounting.

Linda Fish

Rock and roll

Beavis Jones

This was a great course that showed me the ins and outs of accounting. I have a Bachelors degree in finance, but I never really understood basic debits and credits. Now I have a keen understanding of the day to day transactions in a business. I plan on taking this knowledge and starting my own small business with it.
I highly recommend this course to anyone wanting to learn about business and accounting.

Cameron Stringham

I would heartily endorse this course, particularly as taught by these instructors as they are not only knowledgable but confident and enthusiastic.

Edith Littlefield

Helped gel accounting concepts that I was un-clear on.

Mitzi Bender

After taking this course I have gone from “I can do your books” to “This is why your company can’t do without me!” It was exactly what I was looking for. It is money well spent! I now have the marketing confidence to go out and get clients! The practice sets were good. For someone coming into this brand new, the first two weeks are great for them! Overall, this is awesome!

Darlene Bennett

What a great class!

I am a college graduate and have sat through many long-boring classes. Not with this one. It is non-stop, hands on accounting. When I graduated I felt confident I could do a set of books and financial statements for any small business.

I loved the way you presented the material.

Dina Bassett

This course was an excellent opportunity for me to get hands-on training for real life situations. Now I feel more confident approaching my clients and talking to them about how I can provide the service they need. I would recommend this course to anyone who wants to improve their talents and start their own business. It was an excellent experience with Universal Accounting Center.

Rajeswari Sethuraman

Your course is the greatest and I would recommend your organization to all my friends. Good job!!

Janeen Rees

I am so thankful for this course

Sharon Nicholson

The tapes I watched at home were very helpful.

Kristine Nelson

This has been a very interesting and fun course. I enjoyed it a lot. Out of all the accounting courses I have taken, this one was the only one that showed me how to do what I needed for my own business. I want to thank you all.

Millie Moser

I graduated with honors with a BSBA. After completing UAC’s training I opened my business, I know have 15 clients, and have only had one meeting that did not result in a new client. I can only assume that the confidence, coupled with fantastic marketing ideas from UAC, put me into my own leage for bookkeeping services in my area.

Victoria Richardson

I have had the opportunity of not only interviewing, but in many cases placing graduates of the UAC’s training program. I have found that many of the graduates are placable. I truly look forward to each graduating class and the opportunities that come from working with these candidates.

Sue Chaney

Universal Accounting has great bookkeeping classes. They help prepare you to be a bookkeeper. All the books are well covered and explained. It’s amazing how much you can learn in four weeks about accounting.

Allen Christensen

I can’t believe the accounting knowledge covered in four short weeks. I spent years in school and did not get the same education I did this past month…

L.C. Westergard

Being a special needs student, I found Universal Accounting Center to be professional, caring and sensitive to my needs and physical limitations. I can and will recommend Universal Accounting to friends, relatives, clients and anyone who wants to learn to be an accountant.

Muerial Sorenson

I am working toward earning my Enrolled Agent designation. The process to earn this designation is not easy, but the knowledge I gained from taking the Universal Accounting Professional Tax Preparer course has made it ‘attainable’ for me. I am so excited!

I am also now a QuickBooks Pro Advisor. The Universal Accounting QuickBooks Specialist course was extremely helpful in preparing me for all of that!

Thank you,
Brenda J Walukones

I have enjoyed the Universal Accounting course. I did not realize how much I did not know about accounting. The course brought out my need for further study. I learned a lot and feel more qualified to go out and get accounts.

Hal Bond

I took some accounting classes at college but I learned a lot more in these 4 weeks about accounting than before. Excellent instructors, materials and class. I would recommend it to anyone with the desire to succeed in accounting. I really enjoyed and learned. Thank you very much to all.

I very much enjoyed learning about my new business I’m going to start. I’m very excited to help people in business with their business. I feel very great about everything I’ve learned.

I am totally amazed by all of the knowledge I received from this course. I have so much more understanding now of the small business world. I feel very confident in doing accounting now.

Gary White

I really enjoyed the course.

Bradford McRae

I previously graduated with an accounting degree and am a CPA. The instructions were simple to undersand and the instructors are very personal. I would recommend this course to anyone. a “AAA” rating.

Charles Johnson, CPA

My wife and I debated taking the Accounting Course at Universal Accounting Center because we had just finished a $23,000 MBA. We felt like if I hadn’t learned everything about setting up a business and running it from an accounting perspective then no one else could teach it. I feel like I have learned more in 4 weeks (about the practical side of running an accounting business) than I learned in 2 years of business education. While much of the MBA curriculum was theoretical, it did not teach the very important details of doing accounting on a day-to-day basis. I have begun a business on the side at home, that I never could have begun before taking the Universal Acct. Center course. It has turned out to be the best investment I have ever made in real earnings potential. Thanks for taking the time and effort to organize the curriculum- it is by far the clearest method for learning a subject I have ever encountered.

Nathan Lee

I have found that the quality of your curriculum and staff excellent and based upon our experience with Universal Accounting Center we will give full consideration to your graduates for employment.

Jay Schiller

I found this course to be a most rewarding experience.

Rebecca Crowther

B. Davies

My husband and I received the course last week and IT IS FABULOUS!! We have learned more in 1 week than I have learned in 5 years on the job! I am a project accountant and it seems as if I am always using my wits to carry my through but now I feel my feet being firmly planted on the ground.

Alecia Gale

I think Universal Accounting Center is a great company with a wonderful concept. I feel the UPB is a workshop that will live up to its capacity.

The textbooks used for the course particularly impressed me. I have used many textbooks in teaching English, and I found your books to be clear, intelligent and professionally written.

John Green

I owned a small trucking company and did my own books for four years. I was amazed at how much I did not know. This course really taught me a lot that had been missed before. The information here is presented so much more clearly and thorough. Thank you so much.

John Suderich

My employment with Card Access is working out beautifully. When I first took your accounting course, I wasn’t sure what opportunities would follow, but the owners are amazingly accommodating with their training and my personal schedule. This is an incredible opportunity and has been a blessing in my life, one that would not be possible without you and the Universal Accounting Center.

Marci McQuivey

Having done a great deal of investigation into training programs this was by far the most thorough and complete.

Ralph Coleman

Without your training program I would never have considered this position, I now have the confidence and the skills to be an effective member of the corporate level management group.

Norm Millman

I have enjoyed taking this course. I found it informative, professional and fun.

Overall very high marks in producing a window into the MASS of accounting in a short time. Very well organized, well written manuals.
One of the few true real business opportunites that you can make many from.
Very honest, high integrity. I recommend this for many different purposes.

Larry Brockman

After 15 years experience in bookkeeping I have felt for the first time that I understand the accounting concept through this course. I always knew I had what it takes to fit into it but now I have fulfilled the confidence I lacked before this class. UAS is a very meaningful entity for me and has my respect.

Ana Estrada

The Small Business Accounting class was one of the most enjoyable and probably the most useful and practical I have ever taken. That includes the MBA I recently received. It was only a few months ago when I was wishing I had the expertise to start a small business and now, due to your training, I am seeing my wish fulfilled.

Nathan Lee

This course has been a great refresher on bookkeeping and accounting. The additional items learned on consulting, loan set up and resumes have been of great help to me. I look forward to applying the knowledge I’ve gained.

Deven Twitchell

We decided to start our own business. We purchased an existing business with clientele. I am truly thankful for all the knowledge that I have now from taking your course.

Kim Prescott

The salary I was offered was $8000 more per year than the previous job. I believe that my self-employment experience and Universal training were huge contributors to this job offer. I continue to operate my business on the side and provide consulting and tax services.

Chantelle Lepore

I enjoyed the classes a lot. I feel I have learned a great deal. I will be able to apply what I have learned at a job or on my own if I should so decide to venture out and do that. I highly suggest this class to all and want you to know what a benefit it is.

Pat Hewitt

I have really enjoyed this class. Allen, Alf and Ken are very good teachers and more that that they are here to help after we graduated. I appreciated all the special attempts and support that is given to me in getting my new business off the ground.

Mary Leonard

I have the videos and will watch them over and over. This support sets Universal Accounting Center apart from the other institutions. The material presented by Universal Accounting Center is what I have searched for all my life. I know from years of educational experience that no finer information exists and no one puts this material together better than Universal Accounting!

Benjamin York

This type of accounting instruction provides valuable and practical exposure to “real life” business situations which go untapped while attending university courses and reading standard textbooks.

Rich Weston

I learned more in 4 weeks at Universal Accounting Center than in 2 quarters in college. Plus everything and everyone was always upbeat which made it a great environment. It was intense yet I never fell behind and all my questions where always answered.

Alan Navy

Six years ago Monica Mendez was working in a factory with a capped salary and not much chance for promotion. An immigrant to the United States when she was just 17-years old, she had long worried that she would never be able to excel at anything. Unsatisfied with her current position, she decided that instead of working for someone else, it was time she determined her own salary and work schedule by becoming a paid tax preparer.

For five years Monica ran a stagnant practice that provided her with greater flexibility but not the income she desired. She decided it was time she expanded her service offerings in order to enhance her clientele and her income.

One day, Monica began Googling small-business bookkeeping courses when she discovered Universal Accounting Center ; they were offering a free Start Today Seminar in her city the next day! She couldn’t believe her luck. Monica says attending “has been one of the best decisions I have made in my life.”

Now Monica has successfully completed nearly all Universal’s training programs: the Professional Bookkeeper, the Professional Bookkeeper’s Guide to QuickBooks, the Professional Tax Preparer, and the Universal Practice Builder. And she just enrolled in the Master Coaching Program .

As she began talking with her clients about her new service offerings, applying those things she was learning in the Professional Bookkeeper training, one of them retained her accounting services before she had even completed the course.

Since completing the Universal training, Monica now has 9 bookkeeping clients and 550 tax preparation clients, an increase of more than 200%! And she has made approximately $20,000 more as a tax preparer this year, not to mention the $21,600 she has logged in receivables from her bookkeeping clients so far. She has also earned her Professional Bookkeeper and QuickBooks Specialist designations and is working on earning her Professional Tax Preparer certification now.

When asked her favorite thing about managing her own financial practice, Monica says, “I love to advise my clients. Being able to explain a Profit and Loss Report or Balance Sheet is PRICELESS! … I am the first person they call when they are making big purchases. I love the feeling that I can assist my clients.” Her clients especially appreciate the quality of her customer service. “I make them feel like they are the most important people on the planet.”

Monica recognizes that having your own business can be difficult sometimes, but she is grateful that she is getting paid to do something she loves. She is also grateful to Universal for laying the foundation that makes it easy to achieve success as long as you work hard and apply the principles learned.

Long ago Monica discovered that the definition of insanity was doing the same thing time and time again, hoping for a different result. The day Monica decided to attend the Start Today Seminar was the day she changed her business, her family and her lifestyle because she decided to do something different.

Monica is the first to acknowledge that Universal’s training has changed her life, but she realizes that it may not be for the reasons you would expect. She explains, “Universal has helped my aptitude and attitude, and now I know that everything was in my mind. I was lacking confidence and now I am a different woman. I changed. I have learned to respect myself.”

Monica Mendez

I have taken courses in accounting before and I can tell you now that none of these courses match or even come close to what I received from this course. We not only received the training necessary to operate a successful business, but we also receive the training on how to get your business started. We didn’t go at too fast of a pace. I enjoy the course immensely. Thank you.

James Hunt

The course not only gave me the basic fundamentals of accounting, but also the opportunity to understand how to establish a new or existing business in a spectrum of industries.

Mary Davis

Awesome! Much more than I thought it would be

Terri

Excellent course, my time was well spent as a whole. Practice sets were excellent. Boosts my confidence in analyzing financial statements.

You gave a “stay-at-home-mon” the knowledge and understanding of accounting needed to go out and get work that can be done from home

Irene Snow

I am very glad that I look this course . I would recommend this to everyone. The information was thorough, clear. This was really a great course.

Karen Stensrud

I wish I had taken this class five years ago. I’ve been working in the accounting field for over 10 years and didn’t know half of what I learned in one month in this class. I feel completely qualified now to accept a position of great responsibility with a large organization or to be self employed. I’m excited about the potential for money making that this course has given me.

Kris Trout

Great course. Best value I have seen in a long time.

Dick Elgin

I am a fully qualifield graduate accountant with several years experience in the accounting field. The subject matter was very well treated and presented in a very practical manner.

Daylene Waite

This was one of the best experiences of learning material that I’ve ever experienced.

Linda Morgan

I can honestly say that the hands-on training from Universal Accounting Center was far more helpful than that of my degree program. The training I received in you class was superb, exactly what I needed for the type of accounting business I was trying to start. I have been so pleased with the training I received from you, that my two part-time employees are currently taking your course.

S.A. Ivins

You gave a stay-at-home-mom the knowledge and understanding of accounting needed to go out and get work that can be done from home.

I had a bookkeeping course 30 years ago….
Whichever direction you are going, this course will help when you take their counsel; in private business for yourself or as an employee.

Bernel Juran

This class was very informative. I learned a lot in these past 4 weeks. I was looking for a career change. I believe I could use the accounting in any business I will be in.

Viveca Starks

Thank you so much. Iam very happy for to learn in this wonderfull school.

Julio Quispe

I have acquired 8 clients and one part time job since receiving Universal Accounting Training. I found the course very useful. Though all my clients are using some kind of software I am able to apply the principles learned in your course.

Rebecca The

I would recommend this class to many types of people: business owners, work at home parents, or people who wish to build their own business and a promotion.
You learn how and why you are doing, what you are doing, but you learn the way most people learn-by doing.

Connie Hamilton

For 14 years, Amy Rines worked as a comptroller for three different construction companies and saw the same thing happen each time; once she came in, and trained people on procedures, she was no longer needed full time. So, as she was faced again with switching roles within her company, she began to wonder how many other companies might need just a part-time accountant.

Soon after that Rines Management was born. Despite already having an accounting background, Rines turned to the Universal Accounting.

“I debated long and hard before investing in the program because it is a substantial investment that I am still paying for, but if I hadn’t I simply wouldn’t be successful in my business because I wouldn’t know what to do,” Rines said.

In only a few short months since Rines learned the Marketing aspect of the Universal Accounting programs, Rines Management has taken off.

“They taught me how to market my skills, contact people and get out of my comfort zone,” she said. She added that without the program she wouldn’t have known to take many of the steps she has to be successful. “They teach the basics that all businesses need to succeed: production, accounting and marketing.”

Rines is well on her way to meeting both her short term and long term goals. “For the next year I hope to earn $150,000, increase marketing strategies and pick up one new client a week,” she said. To gauge her success, Rines mentioned that she has been picking up two clients a week lately, and has already hired one part time employee to meet growing client demands.

Best of all Rines now has flexibility and says she loves what she does. “The most satisfying part is being able to help my clients grow their business,” she said.

Amy Rines

This course has been very educational, interesting, and fun. This is definitely a class worth taking. I would recommend it to anyone who is interested.

Fawn X

I have been in business for myself for the past 15 years and this is the best course I’ve seen to help the small businessman. An outstanding course.

Scott Turner

The enlightenment in this bookkeeping course is absolutely awesome.

Margaret Murphy

I found this to be a very valuable course. I wish I’d taken it years ago.

This course has been useful in better understanding why record keeping is important, the purposes, and explanation of bookkeeping/accounting, and the better understanding of finances. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed this class.

Elizabeth Ballard

Universal’s Accounting course is great for anyone wanting to open their own business. There is so much one on one attention that you can understand anything they teach. Thanks for all your help.

Kathy Haddenham

I previously had a job doing some AR, AP, Payroll,and Bank reconciliations, and enjoyed it very much. However, my one year of experience did not technically qualify me for the jobs and the salary I was looking for/needed.
The knowledge and training I have now recieved will more than qualify me for these jobs and more.

Jennifer Russell

This program is awesome. I have really enjoyed the classes. The material presented was intense but thorough. I would recommend this program to anyone.

Rhonda Hanson

I would like to state that I wish I had taken this course 20 years ago as it is very well done and explains those aspects of accounting that ,as a businessman, I took for granted.
One last thing, even though I am only half through the course I have been solicited by and have started two new accounts. I’m enthused at the potential ahead.

Tony Porrello

The course was presented in an easily understandably format. Questions were answered so that all uncertainties were eliminated. I feel very confident now that I would be able to really help small businesses. Thank you so much for all your help.

Margaret Lynch

I was really impressed with the help we all received from Alf, Allen and Ken. They wanted each of us to succeed and went out of their way to make sure we understood all the concepts. The money that I spent on this class was well spent.

Michelle Arndt

I thoroughtly enjoyed this course. It has refreshed a lot of the accounting principles that I have forgotten. It has also brought a lot of new ideas and principles that I have not dreamt of. I would recommend this to anyone.

Tuen-nar Spaid

I have been a bookkeeper for two years. When I was first hired, the owner of the company sat me in front of the computer and told me which buttons to push and left me on my own. Until I took this class, I never fully understood why this accounting information was needed. Within 3 days, the light bulbs went off and I began to realize why financial statements are useful. I was also able to explain to my boss what we were looking at.
This has been a great learning experience.

Heather McShane

The information contained in this newsletter is invaluable. I am a degreed accountant and am working on starting a parttime bookkeeping business from my home and your newsletter gives me a lot more confidence.

Thanks,

Martha Sharp

Universal Accounting Course was the most enjoyable course I have ever taken.

Y Nielsen

Many thing were touched upon that were never covered in my original accounting courses in college. Many of the accounting processes became much clearer.

Virginia Tali

I am really impressed with the Universal?s approach to teaching. Watching the video is like being right there in a classroom. But the big benefit is you can pause whenever you like and watch it over if you need too. I just finished the first volume and it has really helped me. To me this is worth every penny. I would like to take there Quick books course after I have paid this one off. Like I said before, I just got my Bookkeeping Diploma from Education Direct and am waiting for my study guide books to arrive so I can get prepared to take the Certified Bookkeepers Final Exam. I learned a lot from that course also. I have been out of school for 30 yrs., so if I sound a little excited, I am!!

Carol Harris

The professional Bookkeeper course was very helpful and your counseling and assistance after the course was even more helpful. I have been able to get an exciting opportunity because of the training and information that I received from the excellent instruction, materials and advise. I am using all of these today to keep books for an established company as well as start the books for an exciting new e-commerce business. The course is well worth the time and money spent.

Thank you for a great start to my new life.

Barbara Deputy

I have done various forms of accounting and bookkeeping for various sized business for 15 years. Some of the class was review for me. But it was still presented in a very informative, helpful way. The parts of the course that were new were clear and understandable. I feel that this course would be beneficial for all business owner’s and bookkeepers.

Brenda Brown

Being a business owner, this class was very beneficial to me. Now I can look at our books, financial statements, etc. and understand what I am looking at. I will now be able to do the accounting for our business. I now know what I need to look at to improve our business. The class is taught in a comfortable and casual manner. You do not feel intimidated or afraid to make mistakes.

Connie Stewart

After graduating from this course I now feel competent to run my own bookkeeping/accounting business. I want to thank the staff at Universal Accounting for the outstanding course of instruction.

Gary Hamblin

Having been a CPA in large Firms and a top level executive in blue-chip companies, I especially appreciate your ability to simplify the subject. You definitely are providing a greatly needed service to people who are interested in being independent.

D. Bird, CPA

One of the best parts of this course is the support I can get after the course is finished. That along with the toos that you can’t get anywhere else.

Cindy Dickey

This has been just what I was looking for. Working directly with the bookkeepoing process from start to finish.

Nicky Sharp

Thank you for all your help, guiding me to success, and being there anytime I needed.

Thanks to UA I have started my own business (even though it took me lot longer than expected); and I have always received a great service.

I have started my own website, but will definitely continue use your great services, as well as recommending UA at any occasion.

Thank You again

I have been amazed at the customer service here. When I have had questions during the day the president of the company actually sat down with me to answer them.

Robyn Kimpton

The tutorial part of this course is second to none. I wish I had known about this course earlier. This course has been very valuable to me.

Chukwuba Uzoma

This has been a wonderful experience. I’ve taken the equivelant of a full year of accounting classes and this 4 week course taught more practical useable knawledge than the full year of college. The instructor is clear and easy to fallow.

Janice Paterson

Since receiving your course, I’ve acquired 5 clients, 3 of my clients are medium sized corporations which I devote 10 – 15 hours per week, 2 smaller clients require about 20 hours per month of my time. I’m negotiating terms with another smaller client, and should know in about a week. Other small businesses have expressed interest and I’m in the process of arranging meetings to discuss how my services can benefit their companies.

Universal presents an excellent course for both the novice as well as the experienced accountant. Even with 15 years of accounting background, I found myself learning something new nearly every day. Of particular benefit to me was the field experience.

Bob Variechon

I thought I knew a lot until I took this course. This was one of the most informative courses I’ve ever taken.

James Baker

Universal Accounting is out to help accountants and bookkeepers to understand how to market their trade and to help their business clients become profitable. The training and programs are great.

It is comforting to know that I have this great company (UAC and staff) to provide support to me if I need it or falter. Thanks for a great job.

Anthony Awotwi

I learned so much more in the accounting classes at UAC than in the accounting classes I had taken in college. This course gives you a lot of practical experience.

Shana Patson

Class Act! Knowledgeable staff and good communicators. Packed with valuable resources and friendly staff.

Ronni Darden

Charity Howard

This course is effective for someone who is currently studying or has graduated from an accounting program. This course has greatly complemented my course work there. I understand the broader picture of accounting much better and understand small business accounting better which is not taught at the University

Greg Brimley

I think I’m becoming one of your success stories. Getting your set of training was one of the most important steps to starting a new career.

I do some subcontracting work with a CPA and he complimented me on starting a new career. After being laid off from a large temporary services company I purchased the self study materials. Then I fromed my company and I’m still in business and growing.

I was up to 5 clients in January and have been above that since then. I just hired a part-time bookkeeper to help me keep up. Now I’m preparing plans to move from the spare bedroom to an office and am hiring an additional full-time person to help.

Yesturday, I was mentioning Universal’s training to a CPA who subcontracts to me about how I learned the basics of double entry accounting from universal’s self-study training materials and how it taught me the accounting basics that go on behind the scenes in QuickBooks and Peachtree.

Paul Hill

I just wanted to send you a quick e-mail to let you know that your resume methods work.

Benjamin York

I found the course to be very detailed and easy to understand. All the instructors ware very helpful, and presented the material in a manner that made learning quite enjoyable. I would recommend the class to anyone that was intersted in learning accounting.

James English

It was well worth my time! This course far exceeded my expectations. I had accounting in college and learned the same concepts but not how to apply or understand them. They actually make sense now! This is a great class!

Heather McEvoy

I would recommend this course to anyone interested in taking it.

Janet Nicole

My understanding of accounting and bookkeeping practices has been dramatically increased. I would highly recommend this class to anyuone who wants to do business for themselves or just organize your personal finances.

Mr. Conrad

This course has given me the confidence I need to begin my own bookkeeping business in my home. Even though I have worked as an accountant for two years, I have learned a great deal and feel more comfortable with the entire accounting cycle.

Guy Wangsgard

My experience with Universal Accounting Marketing Program was stimulating, revealing and most of all educational.

My coach Rick Howard from the offset guided me from being very doubtful to being confident and believing that I have all the qualities to pursue my dream, which is to be a business owner.

When the sessions started I was filled with apprehension and self doubt. Rick explained to me that once I set my goals and follow through, the journey would not be as difficult as I once perceived. He was so right, I now want to tell everyone that I meet about my business. I feel more open and ready to take on more challenges.

I mentioned to Rick once that I was fearful of rejection. He said,I should repeat “So what, who cares, whose next”. I take those words with me each day as I visit the local businesses in my area. I will continue to use the tools that Rick and Universal Accounting has given me to assist me in growing my business. I’ve been attending networking events and have met some real great people and making some new acquaintances. Two weeks from today I’ll be attending my first trade show. Since I signed up for the marketing program I have acquired two new clients and I have a prospect who I am working with.

Once again thank you Rick and Universal Accounting for making me believe in myself once again.

Lucy Ryan

Our goal when I started Universal Accounting was to get enough clients that my husband could go part-time and finish school. Because of Universal Accounting we are financially doing great and our dreams are becoming reality. And the support is great, you’re always there when I need you.

Tammy Brooke

This class has already changed my life. I learned things that will help me in the future. Everyone at Universal Accounting Center was very pleasant to work with. The support they offer throughout the class is wonderful. I feel I was blessed to have this opportunity.

Mary Godman

I enjoyed the training videos and the practice sets tremendously. I was so excited about the prospect of having my own accounting and bookkeeping business that I set my goal to finish the whole self-study course in one week and a day.

Kim Rimmer

The Universal Accounting couse is an excellent course not only for someone going into business for themselves, but also for those achieving to maintain their continuing education. This is an 3excellent course and I recommend it highly.

Faila Fakalata

Your “Professional Bookkeeper Program” has been awesome. I have really enjoyed how you have explained things. Even though I have been doing bookkeeping for years, I finally have the confidence to strike out on my own….Thank you!!

Debora Bailey

I have enjoyed this course inmensely. During my high school years I decided I did not want to do accounting. I ended up working in Accounting for the last 10 years. As you know, I became an expert in a few accounts and I worked with GL a little.
By taking this class I finally undestand what I was doing and how it fits in the whole picture.
My opinion of accounting has changed an I will enjoy it (fully)
The teachers have been great it was really easy to understand all the concepts.
I was affraid to venture into the bookkeeping world because I felt I needed a cor to be one. I feel I just received my tools ( and weapons ).
I was affraid of the Accounting processes in my own language, I now fully undestand it in a different one. Thanks.This course is great.

Kathy Burnnell

I have really enjoyed the four weeks of class. The four weeks passed by quickly. There was a lot of information given in that time. I am excited to get my own clients and starting my own bookkeeping business and overcoming my fears!

LeAnn Woolstenhulme

Just a note to tell you how much I enjoyed the bookkeeping course. I learned a lot and am able to distinguish between a Debit and a Credit. That may sound funny, but I have been confused about each role for most of my business life. Your presentation helped me understand many business concepts more clearly.

Please accept my thanks for four weeks of intense, but rewarding activities in your course. We will be sending people to go through the course as our growth permits. We will also refer interested people to your programs.

Will Clegg

I love this class, and I feel prepared to start my own business.

Augusto Cordeiro

I loved the program. First class. Wish I could do it again.

Universal Accounting Center class provided a great background and given me a sstarting point. I know tha tI wanted to do bookkeeping at home, but I did not have the education or direction I needed to do so.

Sacha Butler-Gomez

I would recommend this class to anyone who is considering starting a business!

Cathy Aston

I have a degree in accounting but have not practiced in public accounting. This has been an excellent review, and also gives tools for practical application that are not covered in college courses. I would highly recommend this course to anyone interested in small business accounting.

Mark Nelson

The course was fun and very informative. It will help greatly throughout my life.

JoAnn Childs

I feel this course far surpassed my expectations. I’ve worked in the “real” world of accounting for 20 plus years and this course really turned on some lights for me. I feel I’ve learned some real practical procedures to help me get started in my own home bookkeeping business.

Donna Pope

The Universal Accounting course was absolutely wonderful. I learned more in these 4 weeks than I ever imagined. This course is definitely NOT just an introductory course, although it is wonderful even for beginners. It is a comprehensive accounting and bookkeeping course that truly taught me everything I would need to know to start my own accounting business, and gain clients with confidence.

Jessica Young

Thanks for all the encouragement. You make me feel I can really do this. The support is wonderful.

Sherene Stunger

This course was not only extremely informative, but was professionally done and very complete.

Gia McCormick

The class was exceptionally informative. It was well planned and easy to review. The instructors were good as presenters and made it clear as to what we were to learn.

Betty Joseph

The Universal Accounting Center saved my life! Having been out of the work force for 30 years, I was wondering how I would ever be able to make a living. I came to the Center totally green about accounting, and left knowing I could do bookkeeping and accounting for small businesses. I was able to secure clientele, set up the accounts, and run my own small business for five years.

Elaine Wyckoff

This course provided straight-forward instruction with ample practice sets to reinforce the instruction.
I learned some very important skills that I know I will retain and be able to apply at my new career

Jodi Elridge

I would recommend this course.

Donna Webster

Thanks for enlightening my mind and giving me understanding of accounting.

Maeta Beck

I was impressed by the professionalism of the material, lessons and instructors. The lessons wre presented very well. I understood concepts that were shaky from other accounting classes.

When I first started to course, I had a lot of anxiety, feeling that this might not help me with what I had in mind. Now that I have finished the course, I am very thankful for it. It has helped me to understand the accounting concepts and applications.

Michelle Winn

This is a great class! More than I expected. The training was top notch. The classes were packed with information that will prepare anyone to be able to do accounting for nearly any small business.

Gary Bowers

I never knew that I could learn so much about accounting in such a short period of time.

Don Evans

The Small Business Accounting class was one of the most enjoyable and probably the most useful and practical I have ever taken. That includes the MBA I recently received.

N Lee

I started the course and discovered accounting/bookkeeping is my “passion” and so self-fulfilling. I have never been so excited about anything in my life. The curriculum, course material, and visual aids were of the highest quality; add Allen Bostrom as one of the best instructors I have ever had to that mix and you have an extraordinary learning experience.
I took the exam about a week ago and received PB Certificate. I am getting ready to start my business four months before retirement, and thanks to UAC, I am good to go!

Sondra Jacob, PB

I just completed the Universal Bookkeeping course. I have 20 years of corporate accounting experience and like you I was a bit uneasy getting started with samll businesses. Prior to taking the course I had 4 clients. After one month I still have the original 4 plus I added a part time bookkeeping position for a small manufacturer, several clients for QuickBooks training and support, and one gentleman who wants me to get his tax infomation organized each year before he takes it to the CPA. My business is booming and I believe the skills and confidence I gained from the course contributed to my success. It is a comprehensive course and gives you all the information you need from the accounting to the marketing. It was worth the money for me. If you are not satisfied, Universal will refund your money. Good Luck.

John Smith

I enjoyed the class. It presented me with an excellent overview of the accounting classes I have taken.

Phillip Peterson

Schools are not preparing people adequately for the “real” accounting work force. I am glad I took the course to help better prepare me.

Paul Baca

I enjoyed the class as it was presented well and in a timely manner. The teachers are very knowledgeable. I look forward to going to work with the knowledge I have been given and the continued support.

Vickie Hendry

I have enjoyed the course very much. I felt the theory was presented well and this application great. The application and how it was adjusted to the particular business was what I came for most and was not disappointed. Thanks for Everything.

Michael Adams

I have worked for CPA’s doing bookkeeping for many years. I now have the confidence to start my own home based business.

Sharon Hokanson

Great practical course providing you with the skills and self-confidence to go out and build your own bookkeeping/accounting service.

B. Pace

Very good course

Jeni Durant

Having been a CPA in ‘Big 8 Firms’ and a top level executive in bluechip companies I especially appreciate your ability to simplify the subject. You definitely are providing a greatly needed service to people who are interested in being independent.

As far as the training, I am very pleased. It has given me the confidence to push ahead in this adventure, because I know I have a full team of professionals behind me. Thank you

Frank Taylor

I have enjoyed the course very much. I have been in accounting all my life and have a degree, but the class was excellent for the basics of bookkeeping for several different types of companies. After attending this class, I now feel I have the material to professionally present myself to prospective clients.

Evan Lyman

Very impressed. I thought the seminar was very well done and the people from UAC seem to really care about you’re future success. I really enjoyed it! Once I got here I realized how worth while it was . If you’re not a marketing guru, then I highly recommend it!

Dave Annese

I was very pleased with the course. The videos are excellent. Everyone is very knowledgeable and professional. I took the course because I am a 1099 financial professional and I want to take control of my own business. I also plan to expand my services to include tax preparation and accounting.

Leonor Olivieri

I am very happy with the value of the course. I feel that I received a lot more than I expected. The education value alone was worth the investment.

Jared Saunders

This program is great! The course is taught in a gradual manner so that those with little or no background can catch on.

Teresa McClain

The accounting course is a very efficient way to learn the tools neccesary for having an accounting business. I feel that the course taught me all I wanted and expected to learn, and then some. The instructors know what they are teaching and have real life experience in the accounting field. Whereas in college you might not get an instructor who has the experience. This course taught me what I wanted to learn and gave me the chance to do the books for businesses. I feel confident in what I was able to learn and am excited to get started.

Brook Lowe

Excellent course. Instructors are knowledgeable and always willing to give one on one additional training. Well worth my time and money. I’m excited to get started.

Zandra Anderson

You guys really know how to start someone’s wheels turning.

Becky Leoncini

Excellent coverage of small business accounting issues.

David Lawrence

Even though I have worked for small companies and their books for quite a few years, I learned more in the first 2 weeks than in my years of doing books. This class has given me the confidence to go and start my own business with confidence. Thank you for an enjoyable experience.

Julie Hemsley

The four-week course at Universal Accounting was terrific. I have spent the past two years searching for just the right idea for a home based business. The business for me would have to provide a service of real value. I was looking for something interesting. something that would be relatively easy to start and not require a lot of capital. I was looking for a business that could start small and gradually be expanded. A business that could be further developed with additional training and experience. This is just the thing I was looking for.

Eileen Jackson

I was very impressed with the entire course. I have enjoyed the class and now feel confident talked to prospective clients. I felt like I was actually sitting in a classroom. Found myself giving my answers out loud.

Penny Hermance

It was a wonderful class. I have been impressed with the material presented and its presentation, but most of all is the credentials behind the teachers. I especially like and appreciate the support that is available after the class. I feel that this class offers the best in academics to apply to making money in the accounting field. I am excited to go forth and apply what I have learned. Thanks for a great class.

Michelle Campbell

I really enjoyed this course. It was all very professionally presented with good energy and enthusiasm. I would highly recommend this course to anyone wanting to improve their skills. This class has been a very wonderful and rewarding experience.

Mary Spencer

I have taken accounting classes at other Universities. I have worked for a small corporation for ten years doiong all phases of the Accounting Process. I have gained more understanding and knowledge of Accounting through this course than I received at the University or work. This is a complete and very understandable course. I hastily recommend this to anyone.

Garry Guymann

Excellent course.

Dru Burgess

After seven years working in a corporate finance enviromnment. My biggest challenge was the fact that, although I knew all areas of accounting at one time. I had only a small piece of the puzzle for such a long time that I had forgotten too much.
I either never knew, or clarifiel what I had already been taught and perhaps never quite understood.
The peaple at Universal Accounting are great as well.
They genuinely care about their students and the students success. I would recommend this course to anyone.

Robin Saylor

After experiencing total confusion in college Accounting courses, I didn’t expect this course to be any different. But I was wrong. This course cleared up all of my confusion. Everything was taught clearly and was easy to understand. Universal Accounting does a great job.

Mary Newcomb

When I came into this course, I had four years of accounting experience in Quickbooks. But I was only a “button pusher.” I never knew what a lot of the financial statements meant or any of the reasons why certain numbers went where they did. I didn’t know what happened to some of it after I put it in. By learning how to do accounting by hand and actually doing it, it finally began to make sense. Thank you.

Lessa Moll

This course has literally changed my life! When I started I hardly knew the difference between a debit and a credit. Now I have the confidence to tackle almost any type of business and do their books. My wife (a tax preparer) even asks me questions concerning depreciation, amortization, and business-related tax information. The Universal Accounting Course has given me a foundation in accounting and bookkeeping that I could have gained in no other way. I am amazed that after just four weeks, I can speak knowledgably about a subject that before was Greek to me

R F

I am so glad that I have UAC to back me up. Thanks for the great tips and important information.

Angelline Seln

I found this to be an excellant class. I found it taught me accounting well in a short time. It is well worth the money.

Judy Davis

Universal provided me the confidence of being able to sit down with a perspective client and really market myself. Year to date, we’re at $600,000 in billings.

Scott Christensen

This is not a “get rich quick” scheme. This is a real work hard, improve yourself, and make your own place in the world course. If Allen can do it I can.

Darlene Phelps

I was very impressed on how well the class was taught. I liked it because it was quick and to the point. I would recommend this to anyone.

Becky Nichols

What a great class! When I graduated I felt confident I could do a set of books and financial statements for any small business.

D. Bassett

This has been the most informative course I have ever had. I felt the information was very concise and exactly the information needed. Time was not wasted on unnecessary information.

Sherrie Sayers

I thought that the course was very helpful, not only in the bookkeeping aspect but also in the client information. I would recommend this course to anyone. The price is a great value and I got my money’s worth.

David Taylor

I learned more in the four weeks of this class than in my 3-4 years of accounting school. It was simple to understand and more practical to apply in everyday life!

Carrie Ericson

I know that I learned a significant amount, and the manuals will be a great advantage for refremces later on.

Rex Orgill

I have never been so please with a couse. I learned more from this course than any other I’ve taken. Now I feel much more qualified, confident and ready op open my own business doing accounting and bookkeeping.

I have always known I have enjoyed accounting, and would like to enter into it as a career. I have had plenty of schooling, but no one has ever gave me a bearing to follow. Thank you for that direction.

Amy Rogers

I would recommend this course to any accountant

Mike Whittle

The Accounting and Bookkeeping Center program and it’s course on Basic Accounting and Bookkeeping will train people in the accounting and computer skills needed by our company. We would definitely consider people who complete this course for employment in the above jobs.

Jesse Swartz

This class has helped me complete the accounting puzzle so that interpreting what I have been doing for years makes sense.

Janet Harris

The class was very good informative.

Diana Ridgeway

I came to this course to purify my small business accounting knowledge and to learn how to start a bookkeeping business. If I fail to succeed in a small bookkeeping business, it will be my fault and not the courses. The course provided me with everything I need and was everything I hoped for. Thank you for the opportunity.

Ed

I came into class without knowing anything in this field. The class was very good. The most important thing was the format and instructors. I can’t say enough good about this class.

Scott McNabh

Taking this class really refreshed my accounting skills. It has made me very excited about the new opportunities that this class has brought me. Thank you very much.

I have taken a bookkeeping and accounting course before but I feel this course has been more informative and knowledgeable. I feel more encouragement at making that “First Step”

Joann Dodge

I am starting my own business and they have also given me great information on getting clients and overcoming the anxiety that goes along with entrepreneurship. It’s nice to know they are here to help even when the class is over.

Becci Williamson

It was a great course. I’ve taken distance learning courses through a community college. With Universal accounting, I had someone in touch with me regularly to see how I was progressing with the course. And, when I called wth a question, I would receive a call back promptly. It made me feel like Universal Accounting genuinely cares for its students. I also got encouragement when talking about my business and the new client I had just started working with.

Anne Foster

I found the four week bookkeeping and accounting class much more informative and in depth than I had expected. The materials were wonderful and the instructors genuinely showed interest in each student. One of the most beneficial classes I have ever taken.

If you really want to learn accounting this is the class that you want to take. Includes lots of hands on experience.

The best part was that it gave me the courage and confidence to start my own business, which has been a dream of mine for years. I quit a good paying job and already have 3 clients. I’m on my way!

Carole Christensen

Thank you for offering this course. I know it will change my life and my family’s too.

Stephanie Leavitt

I really enjoyed accounting in this class. I have a degree in accounting and yet I never thought of persuing any kind of accounting work. This class made it so much fun and enjoyable. I can’t think of doing anything else now.

Malaiska Deo

Universal’s Accounting course is exquisitely designed for all experienced and inexperienced individuals with a desire to do any accounting which they see fit. Never have I assimilated so much useful information in so little time. I highly recommend this course to anyone who wishes to progress through the field either alone or as an employee.

Kevin Jensen

I am currently employed with a small business in town as their office manager. I am responsible for all accounts payable, accounts receivable, and monthly financial reporting to the bank. The subject matter covered in your course has been invaluable. I have worked in the accounting field for the past 6 years. Your course gave me the training and confidence I needed to advance in this area. I have also continued to keep a few of my favorite clients and help with their accounting on a part time basis in the evenings. My home business is still going well and I find great satisfaction working with small businesses. I thank you again for the training that you provided to make this all possible for me.

Mary Starnes

I feel the course would be excellent for anyone working in an accounting department of any company.

Jessica Swenson

I had completed several accounting college courses but I found that they did not adequately prepare me for the day to day real life challenges of a bookkeeper. Since attending this course I have had no trouble working as a full charge bookkeeper/accountant for several businesses on a contract or temporary basis. Usually after a couple of months the company will hire me as a full-time employee, so I have found that I can choose how I wish to work for them.

Richard Pendleton

The hands-on training has made me extremely confident in my accounting and bookkeeping skills. This type of training is the key to being successful in the field of bookkeeping.

M. McQuivey

This class has been very interesting. I have enjoyed every class. Even though I have taken accounting courses in the past, this course has offered many new ideas and much needed information to start my own business. Thank you!!

Stephanie Nelson

Words cannot describe how much your course has contributed to my knowledge and confidence in going out there and getting clients.

In the past, I have attended different courses that related to [the] Accounting designation that I was planning to achieve. Although some of the professors at the college were good, the courses were very expensive and difficult to follow. I had to drop out because my mother was ill, and I never went back.

Wishing that I would have taken this course first before going for the CGA. This, I would strongly recommend to anyone who is planning to become an Accountant to take this course first.

Nicoletta Romita

The course was excellent even for those that have studied accounting before, but need a comprehensive review. All basic concepts for small business accounting were covered.

Paul Hansen

Your course got me started in my bookkeeping business and I went full time in 2 months  at the end of 2008! I’m still going!

Cammie Hughes

I have a bachelor’s degree in accounting, but felt like this course provided me with the overall necessary skills to start my own accounting service.

Kristina Christensen

I was able to quit my job last November… my tax practice is in full swing and my referral business is growing rapidly!  It really is true, after you get a few clients, the referrals start popping up, and I am at the point now where my basic living and business expenses are covered – YEAH!!! And business is growing, I have taken on 3 new ongoing bookkeeping clients in the past 2 weeks, with one more probable coming up….

I am very excited about the growth of my business and very thankful to UAC for the help and support I get when I need it.

Angel Vincent

Having 16+ years experience in accounting, I was introduced to some of the most basic small business accounting concepts that I never learned in college. Construction accounting, flooring, and dealership accounting are perhaps the most significant areas of learning for me. I highly recommend the course to anyone looking for a lucrative career in accounting. This is the best investment I’ve made in years!

Jeffrey Mitchell

I have found this course to be more than I though it would be. I was a little skeptical at the beginning. I would wholeheartedly recommend this program to anyone who is interested in the bookkeeping profession.

Craig Barlow

I have been hired at a local CPA firm. I am the first CPA hired by a two-CPA firm, so I won’t get lost in the shuffle.

Thanks for your assistance. I did benefit by taking the course. I scored very well on the tests that they gave me to test my accounting knowledge. While I believe I already had most of the knowledge, the UAC review was very helpful. It also gave me some new skills, especially learning how some specialized businesses operated and handled their accounting. I will use the manuals and my notes for reference sources.

Terry Harrell, CPA

The salary I was offered was $8,000 more per year that the previous job. And, I believe that my self employment experience and Universal’s training were huge contributors to this job offer.

S. Thomas

I recommend this course to anyone and everyone. I’ve been a bookkeeper for 10 years working for other people. I’ve always wanted to have my own business to work at home, be my own boss and make my own hours. With this knowledge, I can do something I enjoy.

Kathy Blair

I will graduate from the university soon and only because of UAC can I go to work for myself now. I am so excited to get started.

Bradley Jensen

This has been a very thorough and informative course and I am more confident in my abitlity to succeed.

Debra

I have had an idea to go back to school and get an accounting degree so I could operate my own business. I haven’t done so because I didn’t want to take all the other classes.

This has been a wonderful class. It has given me everything I needed to have confidence to aquire clients and do their accounting.

Thank you! I learned a lot and I am excited to get started.

Thank you. This has been a very informative and instructive/ constructive experience for me.

Alan Tomlinson

I cannot describe what Universal has done for me but what I can say without any hesitation is that Universal has changed my life and my business forever.
Being able to work with Universals courses has opened a new world of opportunities for me and with the coaching it just helped me to explode what I already had. Working with Rick every week gave me the confidence that I can do it and I just needed to do it the right way.
Rick kept me accountable every single week and I consider him a great mentor and a friend. Rick helped me implement a new marketing campaign, which is working great by the way, I received my professional bookkeeper designation thanks to him because he gave me the confidence to take the test, and I even change the design on my business cards. I can’t say how many changes I have done with his assistance. Rick helped me to overcome my fears and I feel different now and all this happened because I trust him, I let Rick to show me the right way and I followed his instructions.
Rick gave me many ideas to help me grow my business to a different level. I’ve even hired a part time bookkeeper so I can have more time to go out and meet more business owners.
The reason I decided to have my business was because of my family, I wanted to provide to my son the best education and now I am finally doing it. My business is helping me to provide what my family needs and I am in control of my life.
Rick’s assistance as you can see has changed my business but the best of all is that it has changed my life.
I want to say thank you to Allen Bostrom for fulfilling my dream and for having wonderful people in your organization like Rick who has changed my life forever.

Sherry Gott

Universal Accounting is out to help accountants and bookkeepers to understand how to market their trade and to help their business clients become profitable. The training and programs are great. The materials and the presentations were very easy to follow and enlightening. All the presenters, the staff were great. It is comforting to know that I have this great company (UAC and staff) to provide support to me if I need it or falter. Thanks for a great job.

Anthony Awotwi

I thoroughly enjoyed your accounting course. The education I received from you was well worth the money and time I spent.
I was particularly impressed with your ability to make accounting concepts simple. Your consistent use of examples was an excellent way to drive the points home and make them stick. I am surprised at how much I was able to learn from you in just four weeks.
In addition to making the material easy to learn, your approach was motivating and fun.
This course filled a gap in my knowledge and will be extremely useful in my work. I am glad I found Universal Accounting Institute and would recommend your course to anyone interested in learning accounting.

I have picked up a retail account, another construction account, am now Treasurer of our local Chamber and also the 250th Forward Support Battalion family support treasurer. Things have been getting busy and I am now in the process of looking for an outside office. Universal was a God-send and it was because of the course that I was able to re-establish myself in the accounting field. I had been a stay at home mom for almost 10 years, doing only light bookkeeping on the side and tax prep on the base. I took accounting in business college and several bookkeeping courses throughout the years but nothing compared to UAC’s course. It gave complete hands on experience and the confidence I needed to approach others and get my businesses started.

Tina Parmigiano

I wish I had taken this class before I opened my business. The knowledge gained would have been very useful. This course taught me accounting principles never taught in my college accounting courses. Thank you.

Jim Tomlinson

Having no formal education in Accounting, this course took all of the knowledge I had from learning “hands on” in my career and put it into an easily and understandable format.

Dana Condie

The subjects covered in class were much more oriented towards the actual working world than that of a college classes that I have taken in the past.

Daniel Vilvart

I am a college graduate and learned more in your course that I did at college. I am confident that I have the knowledge to go out into the “real world” and put what I know to work.

Julie Mansell

I feel confident about my newly acquired skills not only about the accounting process but also about how to get my business up and running.

Joe Orme

The accounting skills taught in UAC are very powerful and I am sure that I will use them in whatever area I work in.

B. Campbell

I was pleased with the entire course. I hold a BS degree in Business Administration, but never understood the basic accounting principles. After 3 or 4 days a light came on and I finally understood the previous 4 years of school. I recommend the course to anyone who hold a degree but secretly knows he “doesn’t know beans.”

Four years ago, Shannon Beck was working long and stressful hours as a headhunter – recruiting CPA’s, Controllers and Bookkeepers for Robert Half International. He spent a great deal of his time in traffic and rarely saw his family. Because of the increased stress, lack of sleep, long hours, and on-the-go eating habits, his doctor told him that if he continued to live this way he would die by the age of 40.

Becks’ wife, Tina, had opened her own bookkeeping firm, Beck Accounting Services, in October 2004 and had turned to Universal Accounting to help her run her business more successfully. After seeing the growth his wife had gained from Universal Accounting, Beck saw an opportunity to help his wife grow her business, and recognized that he would have more time to spend with his family. Beck took a chance and joined her, after consulting with Universal Accounting’s management.

“The main reason was I never saw my family,” he said. On June 1, 2005 Beck left his corporate job to become an entrepreneur with his wife. He spent a great deal of his time working on the sales and marketing side of their business, helping his wife bring in several new clients. Within 5 months, they made more money than he had earned at his previous job.

Despite taking accounting classes at BYU, Beck also graduated from Universal Accounting as a Certified Professional Bookkeeper. “It helped me to really understand how to be an accountant,” Beck said, explaining that the several college classes and experience as a finance manager, didn’t give him all the knowledge he needed, or the support. Beck continued to train to be a full-service accountant, and again chose to enroll in the Universal Accounting Practice Builder Workshop.

“It’s a fantastic tool,” Beck said. “It gave us the knowledge and tools to run and operate an accounting firm for small and medium sized businesses.” He testified that the program not only showed them how to get the company, now called Professional Accounting Solutions, up and going, but how to organize and run it. “After five years, Universal Accounting is still working with us today,” he said. As past students they can still ask questions and get help from the company at any time.

As for his health, Beck says there are no problems, plus the family is making more money and spending more time together. They bought a new home in Highland, UT about two and a half years ago, they added additional services to their business, and are now living the American Dream! “It’s been great for our family,” he said. “We get to do what we want more often.”

Shannon Beck

This is a “must take” course for all business owners so they understand the process-whether or not they do their own books.

Utabua Tassie

I just wanted to write and thank you for help in finding an Accounting Assistant for our office. I received a number of resumes with Universal Accounting Institute listed on them.
We have filled this position now and are very happy with the individual we hired.

Shelby Nordman

I found this course to be very informational. The instructors were very helpful and left me with a feeling of empowerment. I completed this course with a peace of mind for my future and a Charge! attitude.

Stephanie Thayer

Loved the course; I can’t wait to work in the field. Thank you very much.

Wade Maraj

I now have 4 Accounts and am where I want to be.
thanks again for everything! Taking this class has boosted my confidence and given me a new meaning. Thank you!

Tammy Brooke

The course was very organized and presented in a way to understand the material quickly.

Heather Jones

Great Course and worth every penny. I would recommend it to anyone looking to supplement their income or start their own work from a home business.

Deb Jones

This class puts all accounting principles in order so most anyone can understand them.

Ken

As a tax preparer this course had helped me to increase my knowledge as I can provide more services to my existing clients and new clients, therefore increasing my income as well.

Alma Rojas

The subject matter covered in your course has been invaluable. I have worked in the accounting field for the past six years; your course gave me the training and confidence I needed to advance in this area.

G. Morton

I have done bookkeeping for over six years but never learned the basics for what I was doing. This course filled in all the missing pieces so that the accounting process makes sense. The knowledge I gained here has given me the confidence to have my own accounting business that I have always wanted.

Shauna North

I enjoyed this class. The information was very valuable. It was well worth my time and hopefully the beginning of a new career.

Carol Kenor

I found that the class not only helped my memory, it also increased my condifence and showed me easier ways of accounting. The whold experience has been FABULOUS!

LeeSa Brown

Mark,

Here is my testimonial email. You will notice I am using a different email, now that my site is up and running.

Universal Accounting Coaching has helped me immensely. It not only reinforced the marketing tools in MOD IV but with the accountability of having assignments done and discussing them with my coach puts me in a “working on my business” mindset throughout the week. The coaching program has helped me stay focused on my business and has given me the confidence to keep at it. I now believe I have the tools to become a successful accountant.

John McCalpin

John McCalpin

This class far exceeded my expectations. I learned more in the 4 weeks of this class than in the two quarters of accounting I had at the University of Utah in the early 80’s. The accounting concepts were presented in a clear, understandable manner. This was adult education at it’s best. I will gladly recommend this class to others.

Ed Kaczka

We have owned a couple of business in the past, and I have had a very limited knowledge of business because I was not directly involved. This class has given me a greater undestanding of how a business is run besides all of the valuable bookkeeping knowledge and experience I have received.

Zenda Rawlings

I have an Associates Degree in accounting but I did not have the self confidence to go out and get a job as an accountant. Now I am ready to go out and get my own clients and to work as an accountant. The course was simple enough to be understood by anyone but so well prepared that anyone could go out and start their own business. I highly recommend the course. I have loved it.

Edwardo Richards

This has been a very enjoyable experiene, one which I hope will become profitable for all concerned. I would recommend this course for anoyone who has an interest in this line of work.

Larry Stuart

I am an accounting student in college. I have been frustrated with my classes because they don’t allow students to understand where each part fits into the whole. They teach you to work with corporations. I don’t want to work for corporate giants. I want to have my own business where I make the decisions. This course teaches me the tools necessary to start working with business in a short period of time. Universities cannot do that.

Joshua Stats

I enjoyed this class very much. Although I do have accounting experience I still recived a lot of info I know I would need for my future.Thank you very much.

La vette Cruz

I feel it was a very complete workshop for the tools that I need to take my business to the next level.

Bernie

I felt the course was very thorough and complete. I feel prepared to start a Bookkeeping Business. I enjoyed the experiences of the instructors.

Blair Burnett

I would like to commend you all on your professional business etiquette, combined with personalized and helpful service. All of you at Universal Accounting Center have been a pleasure to deal with since day one. You have come through with everything that you promised and solved any small glitches perfectly to my satisfaction.

I am itching to get to work on QuickBooks Made Easy (I was starting to get writers cramp with all those ‘by hand’ practice sets!!).

I have completed Module 1, 2 and 4 and am just beginning Module 3. The more I do, the more I understand, the more my confidence builds. Allen, you are a great instructor, I really enjoy your teaching style – thanks. I am getting close to officially launching my business ‘Bradbury Bookkeeping Services’. I am busy gathering Canadian Specific Information.

Keep in touch and thanks again,

Kerry Bradbury

Kerry Bradbury

I would just like to say that this is the BEST accounting course I have ever taken. I had started to get my associates degree in accounting through Harcourt Learning Center, but I never even got to the bookkeeping or accounting phase. There were too many other courses to take before I even got started that I got out of it. I have done taxes in my home for the last 10 years and was a full charge bookkeeper for several years. All I can say is thank God he sent me in the path of your website. Your videos had me answering all of Alan’s questions as if I was right there.

Tina Parmigiano

Universal offers high quality instruction. The teachers are great.

Susan Webb

The accounting couse I took is one of the best I have ever taken. There is genuine concern for the understanding of the material. I would recommend this course to anyone that has any interest in learning about bookkeeping and accounting.

Tiffany Schipannboard

I graduated from college with a Bachelor’s Degree and walked away with no clue about the “real” world. I have wanted to go back to school for years for a second degree in accounting, but feared the same thing would happen- I would learn nothing more than what I had learned in the field (or learn nothing about the “real world”). This class was exactly what I needed; all the basics, and excellent examples. Very good confidence builder!

Leslie Brown

I enjoyed learning from the teacher on the tape. He personally took the time to help me understand some concepts that now seem so clear. Thanks so much. I look forward to working with the marketing team to help me get my business going.

Denise Futrell

I am impressed with how comprehensive this class was. I learned some stuff that I had not have learned before. I would recommend this class to anyone who is interested.

Pamela Foster

I enjoyed the class very much.

Carla Larsen

I have worked in the accounting field for over nine years and learned more in this class than in all other work-related courses I’ve taken.

Sherri Lund

Your course got me started in my bookkeeping business and I when full time in 2 months, at the end of 2008! I’m still going! 😉

Cammie Hughes

This course will provide you with the tools, knowledge and ability to operate your own business. Without this couse we could have made many costly mistakes.

Fred Brown

I really enjoyed Universal’s Accounting course and the quick and easy system that has been presented to me. I plan to use this system and gradually build into my own bookkeeping business. After having four years of accounting in school, and still coming away confused, this was refreshing to be able to walk away with more understanding and confidence. I recommend this course to anyone wanting a little edge.

Taunnia Dyson

What I learn at Universal Accountant Systems is more surprising and more convincing than my college years. The course efficiently extends my horizon not only in accounting but also in the business field. At Universal, the materials taught are not behind the time. What a good investment I ever made.

Karl Leroy

It was easy to understand and very helpful and informative.

Suzi Palmer

This course has been very beneficial for getting better employment and the future of owning my own business, which is my goal. I had wanted to open a business and I didn’t know where to begin. Now I do, plus more.

Brenda Hamlin

Thanks for everything. I learned a lot more than I thought I would. Still learning.

Marsha Hayes

I would highly recommend UAC and this course to anyone thinking of starting their own business or who would like to expand their knowledge of accounting and bookkeeping. These days a college degree is not enough. This course will help apply knowledge learned in college to real world examples.

Dax Doyle

You’ll be glad to know that in the time since I completed the course, I have gone from 1 client, a friend of mine, to 27 clients in a matter of just 8 months. I’m finally realizing the potential that I always knew I had.

V. A. VonTonder

I had no accounting background even though I had done Tax Preparation and Processing for over 4 years. I now have full confidence in my ability to perform in all aspects of accounting and bookkeeping.

Fred Barton

Thanks for all the support you continue to give.

Elaine Wyckoff

About a year ago I was working as a business broker and I came across a bookkeeping business for sale that seemed to offer steady revenue, good profits and the opportunity for growth that I was looking to get into myself so I could transition out of brokering, which I didn’t really enjoy. After investigating the business for sale I determined that the price just couldn’t be justified but I liked the business model enough that I started investigating starting a similar business on my own. That is when I came across Universal Accounting and decided to attend a seminar like this. I had a general business background but I didn’t specifically know how to do bookkeeping and I realized if I was going to be able to sell my services to small business owners I would have to be both confident that I could discuss their needs and offer solutions and competent enough to follow through on my promises.

I enrolled in the courses last November and finished in about a month. I officially launched my business at the beginning of the year. I was able to get my first client within a week of starting- they are still with me, by the way- I have not had a single client leave- and since then I am now up to 16 monthly clients with several more starting soon and I have also done quite a bit of one off project work each month. I am now at the point where I have had to turn down some work and I am about to sign a lease for a small office and start looking for my first employee so I can continue to go out and pull in new clients and have someone to take over a portion of the work. I can definitely say that taking these courses was what enabled me to have the ability to go out and make this happen.

Let me know if you need anything else. Thanks,

Matt Remuzzi
CapForge Bookkeeping

Matt Remuzzi

I heartily recommend this accounting course for anyone who desires a deeper understanding of how bookkeeping can be implemented in any situation.

Steven Hoerle

I have learned more in one month here with greater comprehension than in two semesters of college courses.

John Mobey

This course has been very informational and I’m glad that after a year from when I originaly attended the seminar, I finally enrolled int the course.

Phillip Dickson

Thank you for all that you taught me in the four weeks of school. I know that with the training I received at Universal Accounting Center I will soon have a profitable accounting service.

Michelle Squires

This couse is giving me a way to five our business continuance if something happens to my husband.

Victory Kofod

I have really enjoyed attending Universal’s Accounting course. I have been really impressed with the information presented and have learned many things that well help me as I continue to pursue a career in accounting. I am very glad that I learned about these classes and would certainly recommend them to others.

Karen Ellis

The support organization is very customer oriented, and very professional.

Don Pritchard

It was a very professional course.

Dylan Sedlacek

Aside from presenting an excellent accelerated course in acounting with practical hands on experience. I think I also learned to look at life in a different way. This came mostly from the presentations and makes for a very enjoyable learning experience. I would highly recommend this course to anyone interested in bookkeeping or accounting or for those like me looking for a business to run out of my house.

J O

This course has helped me to see the overall picture and how to organize a simple financial record keeping system for another business better than any of my work experience or my education.

Gordon Hall

I was very impressed. I originally took the course to get a raise with the company I work for. Now I am interested in starting my own business.

Crystal Memmott

Great course! I am more confident as well as comfortable with my fine tuned skills. Thanks to your innovative concepts and principles of small business accounting.

Elaine Johnson

With the help of your company’s program I was able to get out of the bad advertising job I had and finally set foot as a professional bookkeeper. I now make $10,000 more per year than my old job and I am very working in this field. I am very Happy!

Forrest Woolman

Because of Universal Accounting we are financially doing great and our dreams are becoming reality.

T. Brooke

You have given me the tools and made available the resenses that I need to do.
Thank for taking the time to create this excellent system and for presenting it so clearly.

Arilyn Jensen

What a great class! When I graduated I felt confident I could do a set of books and financial statements for any small business.

D. Bassett

You’ll be glad to know that in the time I completed the course, I have gone from 1 client, a friend of mine, to 27 clients in a matter of just 8 months. I’m finally realizing the potential that I always knew I had.

V. VonTonder

Thank you for your school, it has helped me in more ways than you will ever know.

Har

This four week course will teach you all the fundamentals necessary to start your own bookkeeping service.

Jeffrey Webber

Having been involved in owning or consulting in business, I have never seen a better more complete approach to business operation and management.

Gordon LaPearle

It is amazing that this course teaches more info. about accounting than college courses! And it makes sense! This course is great if you want to learn abut bookkeeping or just want to understand your debits and credits. It cuts out all the unnecessary information found in the huge accounting books, gets right to the point and it is very easy to understand. TAKE THIS CLASS! IT’S FANTASTIC!

Brandie Schely

We have sent one of our employees through your training center, and the training she received was very satisfactory.
We are a construction campany, and it is difficult to find full charge bookkeepers with the proper training for our business. When we received the information on your course we were very excited.
We are sending another employee, through your course. We have found that the quality of your curriculum, is excellent. When we have vacancies in our accounting department, we will contact you regarding potential employees.

James Austin

This course fullfilled my desire to work at home and work with numbers.
I like the accounting classes and am very happy with the knowledge I was able to obtain in order to start my own business.

Wendy Billings

I want to let you and your team at Universal Accounting know that I have retired. Actually I retired on June 1, 2011 ( sorry to be so tardy in letting you know ). Sharlane Bailey, my manager has taken over the practice.

I wish to express my appreciation to you and your company, especially David and Alan for all that you did for Canwest Accounting and myself. Your ideas and support were very beneficial in improving Canwest Accounting to the point that it had considerable value when I sold it to Sharlane. I am financially able to enjoy a comfortable retirement. Sharlane and I agreed that I would retain 8 of the clients as well as 50 of the income tax returns (quite a few family and friends at no fee). My company is called Cavalier Accounting Ltd., 133 Mocha Close, Victoria BC V9B 5T3 ( yes that is my home which you visited). Email is cavalieraccounting@shaw.ca. telephone is 250-391-9966. My biggest regret is that I did not begin my association with Universal Accounting 10 years sooner. I have recommended to a few people that have called that they must attend your workshop in Salt Lake City. This will give them a great start in building their business. Please feel free to have any potential clients call me for a reference.

Things that I found beneficial were your concept and advice on marketing ( a major weakness in bookkeepers and accountants ); pricing and how to “sell” the value, and the financial reports that compare my client with others in the same industry.

I would also like to thank you and your associates, especially Alan for the kind hospitality when I was in your beautiful city.

Best wishes

Norman Arden

Norman Arden

It was a worthwhile class and I enjoyed it very much. I learned something such as establishing a bookkeeping system, non-profit accounting etc.
Thank you so much for providing this class. I greatly aprreciate it.

Dora Deng

I really enjoyed this course. I have an accounting degree and I still learned a lot of new things. I really enjoyed the practical applications for small businesses.

Marie Chappell

The Professional Bookkeeping course will provide the opportunity for individuals to obtain the skills necessary to carry out the clerical steps in the accounting process.

Dorothy Mattison

I was very impressed with what I had learned in the few short weeks of class. I was also very surprised that I understood and could finish the material given successfully. The presentation and teaching of the class was great. You could ask questions and get answers. I really enjoyed it and I believe it will certainly help me in my financial future. Thanks.

Amy Miles

We would like to thank you for the opportunities you uncovered for us through your excellent accounting course.

Stormy and Craig Scharp

UAS has done a remarkable job in preparing this course. UAS provides their graduates with the knowledge, understanding, materials, and expertise to hit the ground running. And most of all it’s fun.

Pilarr Parkinson

I haven’t quite finished the Universal Accounting Course yet, but it has already been so useful and well worth the cost.

Majella Vallely

I learned more than I thought my brain was capable of. I feel like I’m prepared to handle bookkeeping for many different types of businesses. The teacher and course materials were excellent. I especially appreciate the support of being able to call for questions that I may have. That’s most reassuring!

Carol Miller

Universal Accounting Center has provided a great background and given me a starting point. I now feel confident and prepared.

S. Butler-Gomez

I really enjoyed this course. I found it very informative and very exciting. I am anxious to get started.

Richard Olsen

This is a practical course that yearches you what it is like and what you really need to know in the “real” world. Having gone through college and received a masters degree in Accounting, I wasn’t sure if I could gain anything from this class. I have learned more in 4 weeds than I did in 5 years of college.

Janet Trelease

As an average for each client I am making about $30 – $50 an hour, I’ve been able to quit my full-time job. Thanks again to everyone at Universal Accounting Center! It has created for me a brighter outlook financially, as well as more free time in my personal life. And, I didn’t have to go to college for years and pay thousands of dollars for an education.

S. Thomas

In our conversation he mentioned he was interested in doing our books. He explained were he got his education and I couldn’t wait to learn more. I feel that what I have gained goes far beyond what I had hoped for originally.

Don Anderson

The Universal Accounting course taught me some things that I had never known and a lot of things I can now put to work immediately in my own business. I appreciate the methods used to present the material and the practical examples given.

Deloy Tanner

The small business and bookkeeping classes were very beneficial. All in all I was very impressed with these classes.

Shari Youd

After I graduated, I quit my job of 6 years at Zions Bank and started my own bookkeeping and tax preparation business. I work mostly with the Spanish people and after more than 6 years we have a very nice clientele on business and personal income tax.

Santiago Gonzalez

This is a great class. This is my second time through and I have learned even more this time. There’s a relaxed atmosphere and it was a lot of fun. I feel confident that I have the knowledge to succeed in establishing new clients.

Zenda Rawlings

I really enjoyed this course, and it taught me quite a bit.

Aubrey Hansen

I already had some accounting from a local college, but they did not compare in any way to the classes I have taken at UAC. The class and instruction I learned were much more than I expected. I feel more confident in my recent learned accounting and marketing skills. I now feel I can begin to start my own business and be in control of my own future. I would recommend this course to anyone who would like to succeed in accounting.

Gilbert Alava

After being a business owner and trying to understand accounting from at least 5 books on the subject, this course took the mystery and fog away quickly and concisely. I now have a new grasp of accounting to enhance my skills and I feel capable of acquiring clients and serving those client’s needs. I recommend this course to anyone even considering starting a business or career. Great school and great philosophy of teaching!

Jeff Rogers

Taking the Universal Accounting course has been a most rewarding and exciting accomplishment. The material was presented so well that it was never boring and very well organized. All the fine details were covered and addressed. I will always fondly remember this experience.

Karen Crawford

This is a VERY informative and positive class and after 4 weeks you walk away with a feeling of accomplishment and pride in what you have done. This is a very good course and a very encouraging one in your endeavors to get into your own business.

Fawn Nelson

I am very happy with the accounting study course you hooked me up with. Mr. Bostrom is better than some of the professors I had at College. He has a great delivery style and he does a fabulous job of making dry subjects entertaining. I’m on the 4th disc of the 1st module and I am glad I made this investment. This has helped raise my confidence when prospecting in the field for new tax/accounting clients.

Forrest Woolman

There is no word in the English language that can even remotely begin to explain how superb this course is. If there is anything that I could say to you about this course it would be to stop reading and enroll right now. I wish that I were more elaborate in my writing so I could convey the importance of this course. This course has advanced my life far more than I ever thought possible. Best luck to you. DON’T MISS THIS OPPORTUNITY!!!!

Jeff Oriye

The course will be a benefit to me in that I now know how to get a accounting service set-up as a home-based business.

Ronald Bodrero

Universal Accounting provides a very thorough course that will teach you the skills and give you the knowledge you will need to run your own business. I highly recommend this course for anyone that wants to start an accounting business or any other type of buisness.

Matt Olsen

If you want direction and actual steps to take to grow your practice you will not be disappointed. The presenters are sincerely interested in helping you set and achieve your goals.

Roy Bartels

Betsy Mitros

I have more confidence in my ability to accurately track and manage information for a business.

Dan Condi

The Universal Accounting course was a great experience. A lot of information in a short time, but well worth it.

Becky Hess

I enjoyed the course very much. It helped refresh a lot of things that I have not worked with much in the past few years. It was very condensed and covered all the things needed to find a job in accounting.

Heidi Swan

I came into this class with no knowledge of accounting. By the time the four weeks were over I was amazed that I could walk right out into my own business already having clients. I recommend this class to anyone.

Stephanie Hippach

The Universal Accounting Program gave me the confidence I needed to pursue a job as an Asst. Controller, that most people would say I was not qualified for. Because of the changes to the real estate market this job was short lived but I have since become employed as a Full Charge Bookkeeper at a retail home and garden store. Thank you Universal Accounting Center for giving me the confidence I lacked and the belief in my abilities to know what I am worth.

Nancy Martinez

It was wonderful! The course covered areas long forgotten due to not being used by my clients. Thanks for the refresher.

Joyce Wolske

This was a great class. There was so much to learn that at times it was overwhelming. I hope I will be able to retain even half of it! It was very instructive and even entertaining. I look forward to using the skill I have acquired in starting my own accounting and bookkeeping business.

Sherry Burton

Universal Accounting is a great tool in the accounting world. I came into this class with some accounting experience, but got a lot of information and new techniques.

Stephanie Kobel

This was an excellent course.

Rebecca Chen

Thank you so much. May GOD bless you all…and your company.

Lilli Washington

I enjoyed the class. I feel prepared to start my own accounting business.

Cheryl Green

This course turned alot of “lights” on that completed the accounting “Puzzle” with my acquired knowledge. I hope to improve my husband’s business with more accurate records.

Carolee Marsala

This course has really helped open options I never thought I had before. The training was easy to understand, and the hands-on work emphasizes that understanding and know-how.

Barbara Woodbrey

I really liked the course, especially the way it was presented with the method of cases and examples of real businesses. I think it is the best way of getting into an area like accounting for small businesses.

Abel Sneiva

I would recommend this course to anyone.

Bart Burnett

The workshop was awesome. You guys certainly over-delivered. I now feel extremely confident to be able to sell my profession, knowing that I am truly providing a great value to my clients.

Igor Pimentel

This course was really clear and easy to understand. I have taken accounting classes before and it really didn’t all come together until after taking this course. I would recommend this course to anyone.

Eric Ottesen

This is the first time I have completed anything academically after graduating from high school- I never felt like I was smart enough. This has helped me so much to see that I can succeed. I feel this will help me tremendously as I develop my home business and accomplish financial freedom and confidence.

Stephanie Parrish

I have really enjoyed this class. I have learned a lot more about small businesses in this class than I have in any of my college accounting classes. If you are looking for a small class atmosphere and personal attention this is the place for you.

Melissa Hall

Matt Remuzzi had been working as a business broker when he decided that he could no longer tolerate the roller-coaster income. A self-made entrepreneur since 2000, he couldn’t imagine working for anyone other than himself. But he needed a change.

Matt associated with many small-business owners who had little to no bookkeeping support; he recognized a need that he could potentially fill as a professional, affordable bookkeeper, serving those same people with whom he was already working every day.

While at that time he had the opportunity to purchase an existing bookkeeping business, he decided, after doing a little research, that he would rather start his own and enrolled in Universal’s Professional Bookkeeper (PB) and QuickBooks training programs.

Matt completed the training programs and in January of 2012 he launched his own bookkeeping practice, CapForge Bookkeeping & More. He currently serves 22 regular clients in addition to working on a project basis for many more. In addition to having earned the Professional Bookkeeper and QuickBooks Specialist designations, Matt explains that through Universal’s training he gained “increased confidence in being able to provide a quality service.”

To those who may want to follow Matt’s lead he advises, “There are plenty of clients for everyone if you provide a reliable, professional service. But you have to go out and find them—they aren’t going to call you out of the blue.”

Luckily, the Professional Bookkeeper program not only provides training in small-business accounting, but it also teaches you how to successfully promote your services to a target market. In fact, one entire module of the program is dedicated to Building a Successful Accounting Service.

Matt says he is “selling peace of mind more than anything, and [his clients] appreciate knowing that someone who knows what they are doing is now keeping an eye out for their best interests.”

Matt Remuzzi

I did not know there was a school that would actually teach one the step by step process in setting up a bookkeeping service. I went to your 2 hour seminar with great anticipation and fortunately, unlike so many other seminars I have attended, it far surpassed my expectations. I left your seminar believing I really could start a bookkeeping service.

Jim Stafford

This is the best investment for the money and for my future.

Becky Davies

Thank you very much. This class has given me a great deal of confidence in my ability to start my own business. It was amazing how the principles of bookkeeping were made to be exciting and fun to learn.

Steven Motteshard

Without the knowledge of the accounting course I received from UAC, I would have never landed this fabulous position.

J. Eldridge

I really enjoyed taking the bookkeeping class. It was fast, informative, and very interesting. The material was presented well and the practice sets were designed to assist with learning the whole acounting process. I’m excited to start building a business and using the knowledge I’ve learned.

Susan Gyllenskog

I am a single parent who was registered at the community college to complete my accountingbookkeeping course. This would have taken 2 years to complete. Having completed the course at Universal Accounting, I have cancelled my registration at the college. I now feel able to offer accounting services and will also be able to run this out of my home.

Lori Moore

This course has been well worth the money. I am glad I took this class and am excited to start getting clients.

L. Broadhead

I thought it was a great course . I would recommend it to a friend.

Shawn Thredgold

I learned so much more than the accounting classes I took in college. This gives you a lot of practical experience.

V. Chmelka

I am writing to thank you for your support and the opportunity that your facility has brought to me. In such a small amount of time, I have found that I learned more attending your school than I learned in three years of high school. I would like you to know I aprreciate the quality of the teaching that is shown and expected at your school.

Kelly Christensen

I just wanted to thank you. You have really been very informative with areas of funding and opportunities that I had previonsly been unaware of.

Denise Cardall

You all are the best in everything you teach. This is a dream come true for someane like myself. Thank you.

Dina Flores

This class far exceeded my expectations.

C. Levit

I found the material presented in class was easy to understand. I now have a good, solid foundation with which to work. I have learned how to present my knowledge to the clients and show them how I can be of benefit to them as a bookkeeper.

Gerry Stegg

I have completed the course and am very pleased at what I have been able to learn. In tallying with other accountants, the material that we have covered in a short span of time would take several years in college. The fact that the school will not give up on you until you give up on yourself is in itself a tremendous benefit.

Kenneth Trimble

I have taken bookkeeping courses before and always left with some confusion of the overall picture. I feel more confident now and know that I can do full charge bookkeeping.

Linda Williams

Universal Accounting gave me a very strong understanding of small business accounting. I recomend this course.

Patrick Simmons

This course was excellent. I started with little or no accounting experience and by the end of the course I have enough knowledge and confidence to take over most any small business’s books.

Cindee Bahr

I have worked as a bookkeeper off and on for 15 years, but I never felt that I had a good understanding of the calculations, processes and possibilitis attached the work of complete financial picture, even though I had created it.
This class has given me insight into new businesses, how the financial pictures are effected by even small business decisions, and what wonderful things that your financial goals. I felt that my education was very thorough and enjoyed the challenge in each phase.

Melinda Jeffress

Universal Accounting System has been a tremendous help for me to give confidence and information on how to go into business for myself. I would recommend this course to anyone remotely interested in accounting either as a business or just to help them understand accounting principles.

Jeff Bruckman

I have always been a fanatic about accounting for every penny in my check book.
This class has been an eye opene of how much more need to be done to be accurate improve bookkeeping skills.

Michelle Coats

This was a tremendous course. I learned many things about accounting far beyond my university training. I would recommend this course not only to potential accountants, but also to any small business owner.

Greg Wille

Coming to Universal Accounting Center and attending this course was the best thing that happened to me. I did not know what to expect and was a bit apprehensive at first. I did not imagine that I could face this world out there and talk confidently about accounting and bookkeeping, let alone start my own business in it. But having this class, I have developed the confidence that I need to go out there and be on my own and the confidence to make a go at it. I’m ready to face the world!!!

Julie Musumba

This program is making things a lot easier to understand. I am currently in school getting my degree in Accounting and if I would have had instructors explain it in this format, it would have been awesome

Tammy Oberst

I have just finished an Associates Degree in Accountin and I didn’t know where to start accounting. This course has been heaven sent for me.

Kent Miller

I really enjoyed this course. It has changed my whole life by giving me more control and freedom. Plus I will be able to make more money. Thank you!

Misty Eyre

After completing UAC’S course, I feel that I was able to obtain a better understanding of other accounting principle necessary for my perspective clients. UAC was able to give me the skills to adapt too many different situations. My current clients have recognized the changes and appreciate them greatly.

Scott Christensen

This class is highly recommended to take and you won’t regret it.

Ruth Jacobson

I don’t have any previous experience but I learned a lot. I really enjoyed this experience.

Bonnie Miller

I came to this class with the expectation of brushing up on my skills and obtaining a certificate that would show prospective employers that I can do their accounting and have a certificate to show I know what I’m doing as well as the 20 years experience that I have. What I came away with is much, much more than that. I have learned new things and relearned many things, very valuable things- techniques, procedures, and stories.

Thanks for everything.

Melanie Lloyd

The accounting course has been most beneficial. Although I’ve had years of experience with accounting, this course has helped me to crystallize a more complete picture of accounting concepts. It has also given me additional self confidence. I was seeking to begin my own Accounting and Bookkeeping service. I feel totally confident that I can handle most any type of accounting needs. I highly recommend the course to anyone serious about starting their own bookkeeping service.

Frank Flueburger

I have enjoyed learning about the accounting process. I have worked with QuickBooks for 10 years and taking this class has improved my understanding 100%. Thank you so much for offering this great class.

Ladonna Peterman

The instruction I received was excellent. I believe that I now have the background to start an accounting business.

Todd Loosle

This class has been a great experience. It has taught me more about accounting than what had been taught in school.

Leanne McKenzie

I feel I have gained much knowledge and ability in the accounting field in the relatively short time that I have been taking these classes. The support here is wonderful as the courses are very comprehensive and we are put in contact with outstanding resources to help each of us in our future work. I would fully recommend these courses to any person that has a desire for a career or just wants to learn more about accounting in general.

Paul Burggraaf

This class was excellent. I do feel that I can go out and get clients, with the confidence that I needed.

Tonya Johnson

This has been an excellent program. I truly believe anyone, including me, can have a successful bookkeeping business if they put forth the time and effort.

Kathy Ging

I have acquired more than 5 clients since receving my UAC Course.

Gregg Amicon

I am so pleased that I took the opportunity to get this training. I’m excited to get busy in its use.

JoAnn Anderson

I am currently an MBA student. I took this class to give me practical knowledge of accounting and to help me get a job in accounting. This class taught me some very practical information.

Richard O’Keef

I really enjoyed your course.

Kelli Kohler

My experience with accounting has been zero, until now. When I saw the ad in the classified section of the newspaper regarding the course, I never dreamed I would enjoy it as much as I have. Accounting was never my strongpoint and I never thought I would end up owning my own business, but I have already opened my doors. I highly recommend this course to anyone who is in need of sharpening their skills for the job market or has a desire to start their own business.

Debbie Christensen

Why I chose Universal Accounting Marketing Program

My experience with Universal Accounting Marketing Program was stimulating, revealing and most of all educational.

My coach Rick Howard from the offset guided me from being very doubtful to being confident and believing that I have all the qualities to pursue my dream, which is to be a business owner.

When the sessions started I was filled with apprehension and self doubt. Rick explained to me that once I set my goals and follow through, the journey would not be as difficult as I once perceived. He was so right, I now want to tell everyone that I meet about my business. I feel more open and ready to take on more challenges.

I mentioned to Rick once that I was fearful of rejection. He said,I should repeat “So what, who cares, whose next”. I take those words with me each day as I visit the local businesses in my area. I will continue to use the tools that Rick and Universal Accounting has given me to assist me in growing my business. I’ve been attending networking events and have met some real great people and making some new acquaintances. Two weeks from today I’ll be attending my first trade show. Since I signed up for the marketing program I have acquired two new clients and I have a prospect who I am working with.

Once again thank you Rick and Universal Accounting for making me believe in myself once again.

Best Regards
Lucy Ryan

Lucy Ryan

I’ve really enjoyed the course and look forward to starting my own business. Thank you for helping me to do something I can feel confident about and actually succeed at.

Tammy Brooke

I have enjoyed the class for the excellent review that I have received. After 15 years of being out of accounting, this has been an excellent class. The very organized way of presenting information made for an excellent course.

Roger Bewelshall

I can honestly say I have learned more in the few weeks at Universal Accounting than months in college classes.

I would be happy to and will in fact recommend this course to others seeking a class which gives the highest return on investment I’ve seen

N. Knight

I enjoyed the course. It was informative and interesting. Everything that was promised I would learn was taught during the course and taught well.

Donna Narrey

I have felt that it would be difficult to find a business course anywhere that could equal this one. The couse encompasses such a broad spectrum of the Accounting principles and business in general.

Linda Geertsen
About UAC

The class was very well presented both in concern and personality. I felt that I learned more in the 4 weeks of this class than in nearly a year of college course work.

Kevin Merrill

I spent a lot of time looking for a training and profession before I decided on the Universal Accounting course. I recommend this course without reservation.

Linda Webb

This course has been just what I was looking for. I have started many other programs only to find I had to go through months of study before I got to any bookkeeping or accounting lessons. It’s informative, easy to follow, and I felt as if I was right in the classroom. I would recommend it to anyone who is looking to get a good knowledge of bookkeeping and accounting. Thank you.

Tina Parmigiano

I want to thank you for making this course.
Thank you for helping me make my dreams closer to reality.
I had a dream. now I have a plan.

Chris Johnson

This cours is definitely NOT just an introductory course, although it is wonderful even for beginners. It is a comprehensive accounting and bookkeeping course that truly taught me everthing I would need to know to start my own accounting business, and gain clients with confidence.

J. Young

I knew I needed help marketing my business from the moment I first thought about starting a business. I am an accountant, not a marketing specialist – marketing is like a foreign language to me. I had no idea how to start marketing my business and myself, I needed someone to take me by the hand and lead me step-by-step through the entire marketing process.

My experience with coaching has been very positive. Rick is a great coach. He is very knowledgeable and encouraging. Not only did Rick show me that there are many avenues for marketing your business, but he was there helping me through my fear of networking. He explained that I was not “selling” anything, but developing and nurturing relationships. This change in thinking took all the pressure that I was putting on myself to go out and get clients off my shoulders. “Nurturing relationships” and not “getting clients” became my mantra. I no longer fear that people – including my family members – are running away from me, saying to themselves “oh no, here she comes again!”

With Rick helping me, my networking experience has been nothing short of a miracle. Although I still need some polishing, I have discovered that it is not how professional you sound, but how sincere you are. There is a wealth of people in the business world that want to help you succeed. The people I have met are friendly and really want to see you succeed. I no longer feel like a meek little office mouse. I feel enormous pride when I tell people that I am a profit and growth expert who owns a local business.

My confidence in myself and in my skills has grown so much. If you do what your coach asks you to do, you cannot help but succeed. Other than having Rick physically by my side when I go to networking events, there is not a thing I can think of that needs changing in this program.

Thank you Rick – I know that I have a very successful business in the works because of your help and support.

Jeanenne Leven

Being from Canada, I was skeptical whether your company was really going to be able to help my business grow. You and your team members were so hospitable to the group! We gained the knowledge on what it takes to build our business, along with being able to see the results of your hard work. When you talked about “MAP” I realized the importance of what I was missing—marketing/sales. The greatest asset I received from the UPB workshop. I need to believe in my own value, no one else will, even if I am gifted at what I do. If I cannot express the value of my services, I will not be prosperous. I am a Profit Expert. I definitely felt the UPB workshop was well worth my commitment of time and money.

Cheryl Chamberlain

Very well put together!

Brandi Milano

After completing Universal Accounting’s Course I feel that I can successfully set up the books for our Construction Company and actually tell whether we are making a profit or not

Reviews

This course is definitely NOT just an introductory course, although it is wonderful even for beginners. It is a comprehensive accounting and bookkeeping course that truly taught me everything I would need to know to start my own accounting business, and gain clients with confidence.

J. Young

The class was very enjoyable and enlightening. Though I have had 10 years of experience and education behind me in accounting, I still picked up and learned many new concepts and ideas concerning accounting and bookkeeping. I picked up enough new information to make the class well worth the money spent. I can now go out and find clients and make a go of owning my own business.

Craig Milner

In four weeks, your course taught me everything, and I mean everything, I would need to know about starting my home bookkeeping business. I am making more money than I did when I was employed full-time and I arrange my schedule to fit my needs, not arrange my life to fit my jobs’. I can honestly say, this was the best investment I have ever made in my life.

S. Myers

I really enjoyed this course. I liked the fact that the classes were taped. I could watch them whenever it was convenient for me, and I could pause or rewind the tape whenever I needed to. It took me through the bookkeeping process step by step. I think it is a very good, clear, and logical course.

Janel Roca

I want to start my own business and I know that I now have the skills to do that. This class has shown me how to market myself.

Felica Griswold

This course gives information on how to do the job of Bookkeeping as well as a good background into the whole financial structure of a business. I would recommend this course to anyone.

Steve Russo

In attending the course, I have been able to see that although I had good knowledge of general accounting procedures, I did not know how to do the books for different types of businesses. The program taught was very simple to understand and very detailed. Thank you for the help in getting organized to start my own business.

Curtis Donald

I am an economist with 1500+ individual return tax practice and 200 small business clients. We offer “ala carte” bookkeeping, payroll, business & tax planning, and investment services. We train and support our clients to perform many of their bookkeeping tasks (Quickbooks for most, however, some are singe entry ledger)… for some we perform all those tasks, fee per service. We are using your system to review and improve our in-house skills for, in turn, training our clients. Those who are interested in further improving their skills, we recommend instructional courses such as yours (currently, only yours). I have fairly extensive experience in one-on-one training, and we offer carious seminars that seek to tie bookkeeping concepts to the impact they have on business finacning, tax and retirement planning issues.

Dave Smith

Everything was really excellent

William Clark

I found this course to be easy to understand and very applicable to real life business. The training I received in college took a longer time and seemed a lot harder to understand.

Stephanie Staples

This course is very educational. I had come a long way. Although I had to learn accounting in college, this prepared me more efficiently for the working world.

Madhvi Ivain

The valuable information I learned while attending Universal’s Accounting Course has enabled me to achieve many personal goals, along with my business goals, in just a few weeks. In four weeks, your course taught me everything, and I mean everything, I would need to know about starting my home bookkeeping business. Your zest and vast knowledge of the field made learning from you a pleasure and the time passed so quickly that I was sad to see it end. I can honestly say, this was the best investment I have ever made in my life! I currently have 7 clients and have stopped aggressively marketing for any new ones. I am making more money than I did when I was employed full-time and I arrange my schedule to fit my needs, not arrange my life to fit my job. You not only educated me with accounting functions, but instilled a sense of “can-do”, “win win”, and the courage when I was in doubt of myself.

Susi Myers

I have just recently picked up my fifth account since finishing your program.

Tina Parmigiano

Even though I have a B.S. degree in accounting, I feel your training is far superior to the training I received from my 33 college accounting hours. True to my college training, most of my 25 plus year accounting career has been with large corporations including Oil & Gas.

Jim Stafford

I now have tools I can really use to take my business to the next level from a marketing standpoint. The staff was great and had great ideas.

Michele Crenshaw

I was so impressed with the way this course was taught. It was made simple by the videos which I loved.

Linda Hudson

I am happy to announce that I am going to use my education and 14 years experience by opening my own accounting and management services company, which will include accounting, payroll, tax preparation, plus acquisition of business financing, the preparation of business plans, writing policies and procedures and creation of small business corporations. I have my first client set and running, and working the marketing program to get others.

Cal Michels

For someone like myself who has had no background in accounting, the course is very helpful and prepares students well.

Bruce Barnett

I can’t believe the difference between the way that this course was taught and the University’s technique.

Kathryn Clark

This course has literally changed my life. When I started I hardly knew the difference between a debit and a credit. Now I have the confidence to tackle almost any type of business and do their books.

P. Lufkin

This has been a very enlightening course which has strengthened my involvement in the accounting field.

Glen Mihlfeith

I have started my business. As of July lst, I am leaving my job of 15 years and working my business full time. My number one priority now is to complete the course, as I already have enough clients, on contract, to give me a larger annual income than I had working for my employer, and my position was a senior management one (making the second highest income in the company). I plan on completing the course before I actively pursue more clients.

I am free to travel, and have signed up to take a Dale Carnigie course in the fall. Even though I am comfortable and have experience speaking to groups I feel this course would benefit me in the long haul.

Robbie Ursu

Hey Rick,

Here are some thoughts to address your talking points:

1) I was having a problem finding the first couple of clients and how the best way was to break the ice.

2) Having been in sales for many years, it was a good experience to revisit several ways to market my services. I think the coaching helped remind me there is more than one way to do things and helped me get out of the rut I was in.

3) The coaching sessions actually changed my goals that I had set. I originally was so frustrated about getting my first client that I had set me goals much too low. During the coaching sessions, I got three clients to sign up and consequently I needed to raise my goals to be more of a challenge.

4) My confidence has always been high. I believe in myself and my abilities. I think the coaching sessions made me realize this fact and that I also have confidence in the product and what I can do for a client.

5) During the sessions, I used several ways of marketing my services including letters to friends and local businesses, the local Chamber of Commerce, joined a BNI group (this was probably the best thing that I did) and I talk to everyone I come in contact with about how I can help them reduce their taxes, increase their profits and better manage their cash flow.

6) I have set-up three clients who I will do everyday accounting, consulting and taxes for. I just got back my first Business Assessment and am extremely pleased with the information within the reports and how it can sustain relationships with clients.

7) I think that informational discussions, new ideas, homework and anything of substance to the coaching session should be written and sent to the person being coached so that it can be used as a study for future use as well as making sure that they get an accurate depiction of what transpired in the session.

8) It was a good reminder of how to’s, variations on existing ways of doing things and a great reminder of the difference between marketing and sales.

I hope these answers will help in tweaking or fine tuning points in the coaching sessions. They are my opinions and I believe I got my money’s worth out of the sessions.

Thank you for your coaching knowledge and being able to relate it so easily. I know it will help me become more successful in the business.

Best Regards,
Mike Houy

Mike Houy

I could not have put together an approach that came close to Universal’s course presentation!

Paul Kovacs

I feel much more confident about my home business. I have taken an accounting class before and this course has been more educational in the accounting process as well as the bigger picture of doing business. I have really enjoyed this class.

Dixie Andersen

I have taken accounting classes through the local college, but your course covers so much more. I thoroughly enjoyed it and would highly recommend this product to anyone

Lorrie Barnum

When I started this class I knew nothing about accounting. Wow, what a difference 4 weeks can make! My advice, Just Do It. You never know what you can do until you do it. I know you’ve heard it before, but in 10 years do you want to be where you are now? I don’t. That’s why I’m here doing this.

Dennis Keener

Taking this course has been great for me. It really has helped my self-esteem to improve.
Thank you so much for providing this course. It was easy to learn.

Elaine Huntington

This course has been more than helpful in giving me an idea of what lies ahead for me in my business pursuits…I can’t believe I learned all this in one month’s time.

Jeff Geertsen

One of the biggest items out of this that I received is CONFIDENCE.

Vivian Peck

I feel that the course will greatly accelerate my success.

Chad Habby

I have been very impressed with the course, the way it has been presented and the things I’ve learned. It has been an excellent refresher course in accounting. Also and excellent practical approach. You’ve helped convince me that I can go out and od this on my own.

Stauly Petty

I’ve learned so much in such short time.

Karen Schvaneveldt

The family feeling and atmosphere. I have taken other courses but never learned somuch so fast ending with confidence a true sence that we can make this work for us.

Malinda Barnhardt

The Universal Accounting Center is an excellent place to learn the whole accounting system in a limited period of time. It has been my dream to have my own accounting business. I had no idea on how to set it up and had little confidence to start. From this course, I have learned what I have wanted to know and more than I expected.

I appreciate that the instructors were very friendly and helpful.

Jomiko Osaki

I came into this class to get a background in accounting. I have surprised myself by learning so much more about accounting and I love it. This has been an excellent and really fun class.

Janice True

Very well put together.

B. Milano

Overall, the course was more than I expected. There was a lot of information inashort period of time and was covered in a great way.

Lisa Nielsen

Well… I did, I learned a lot and I am very happy and I am proud of Universal accounting Center.

Ignancio Lopez

I have enjoyed taking this course very much. I have learned everything I came here to learn. You are all excellent teachers. I am glad I have had this opportunity.

Glenda Hales

Our employee attended your school and the training you provided is exactly what we needed.
Your training enabled Mr. Dusting to get more deeply involved with accounting and handle the contracts in transit and inventory financing.
The quality of your curriculum for an appliance store is excellent. If I were to have vacancies in my accounting department, I will be happy to give full consideration to your graduates.

Frank Adler

I feel that this is the most valuable course that I have ever taken.

Francine Rushton

The hands-on training has made me extremely confident in my accounting and bookkeeping skills. This type of training is the key to being successful in the field of bookkeeping.

M. McQuivey

I enjoyed of your accounting course. The DVD format was fabulous-many times I hit the rewind button to hear information repeated so I could catch everything. I would have been so frustrated to miss this information in a classroom. The material presented by Allen Bostrom was done in a very organized, well planned format. On the whole, I would recommend this course to anyone interested in accounting.

Jayne Krauss

This course was very interesting and informative. At the end of the course, I felt very confident that I had all the information necessary to do bookkeeping for others.

Neil Wright

The course was presented in a very efficient manner, especially learning by doing. We were given much more information than I expected.

Tom B

I felt the 4 short weeks were incredibly comprehensive. The concepts were presented in an easy to understand manner- with one concept building onto another. I would definitely recommend this course.

Dianna Janke

I’ve always wanted to have my own business and now I am qualified. I have the training and I definately have the tools. I know I can do this and it will be great. Thanks for giving me the confidence I needed to make my own business work!

Lisa Warnick

I now feel very supored to take on any apportunities that will come my way.

Blanche Smith

I wanted to thank you again for the wonderful seminar given. I definitely learned a lot about marketing! It is such a comforting feeling to know that you and your staff are there to answer my questions. I could see each one of you truly cared about the success of your students!

Karen Poniscan

My experience at Universal Accounting Center for the last 4 weeks have been beyond what I imagined they could be.

Ruth Despain

This course was fantastic! I already had an associate’s degree in accounting and eight years great accounting experience, including four years in small business accounting. I took the class and WOW! I was so excited everyday with how much I was learning, day one on. I would recommend it to anyone. This course is changing my life. It was worth every penny.

Marianne Johnston

I have worked in accounting for years and was amazed at how many things I didn’t know and understand. I would recommend this course to everyone that wants a better grasp on the accounting process.

Ruth Moss

My expirience with universal accounting has been very enjoyoble. I did learne a great ideal and also gane confidence in the accounting. I feel that I was recommend the course to business asociotes.

Gaston Lazarte

Well worth my time and money.

Stany

This course has literally changed my life. When I started I hardly knew the difference between a debit and a credit. Now I have the confidence to tackle almost any type of business and do their books.

In 1984, Sandy Rockwell started her first business with her husband. This began her nearly twenty years’ experience as a business owner. However, when her father-in-law became ill, she decided to sell everything in order to take care of him. After he passed away, she reentered the traditional workforce as an administrative assistant, but when the recession hit in 2008, she was laid off. It was then that Sandy put her business knowledge to use and launched her own bookkeeping practice. She explains, “Bookkeeping and accounting is what I am good at and it is the least favorite thing a business owner enjoys.” She had found her niche!

While Sandy had achieved a basic mastery of accounting and bookkeeping over the years, she knew that in order to become truly successful, she would need to update her training and acquire certification demonstrating her expertise. For that, she turned to Universal Accounting Center.

Sandy completed the Professional Bookkeeper and the Professional Professional Bookkeeper’s Guide to QuickBooks programs and obtained the designations for each. She says, “I enjoy having the credentials after my name which gives me immediate creditability. I have a better understanding of accounting even after doing my own books for years. I gained knowledge in several types of industries which gives me the ability to work with more industries than just the one I knew.”

Sandy currently has nine clients, most of which she acquired through word-of-mouth. She targets service-based businesses and non-profit organizations, providing QuickBooks training, bookkeeping services, coaching, and business assessments. She explains, “As a profit and growth expert, one of my primary roles is to ensure that business owners have the historical data that is needed to make accurate planning decisions.”

She credits her success to perseverance and hard work as well as confidence in her professional abilities and industry knowledge. It also doesn’t hurt that Sandy thoroughly enjoys her work and has felt tremendous achievement in helping owners turn their businesses around. She says, “It is a great sense of accomplishment when those who had no smile when I started with them are smiling now! Helping others acquire accurate information that will change their lives and the businesses that they are relying on to support their families is a great accomplishment.”

Sandy Rockwell is grateful for Universal’s training. “One thing that has been very helpful for me is the Master Coaching program. Being all by myself, I have that support when I run into something that I don’t know; I have someone there to help me when difficult situations arise.”

And to those considering enrolling in Universal’s training, Sandy encourages, “[The] UAC program is everything that you’ve been promised! Take the education and improve your marketability to achieve a better-paying position. If you have owned a business and enjoy this type of work, you can build any size of business with this program that you would like and make a great living. If you believe in yourself, you have all the material necessary to start your own company for the first time!”

Sandy Rockwell

This class was a wonderful experience. I thouroughly enjoyed it. The instructors were easy to follow and understand. I feel this will help me in my future endevors.

Stacie Gayler

This was an excellent class! I learned so much. I’ve never understood the debit/credit thing- but now it’s so simple. This class has been well worth the time! Thank you!!

Joye Griffin

I thought the workshop met my expectations. It was very thorough and I felt like I received very valuable information. It was well worth the time, effort, and money. I would recommend it to anyone who wants to expand, grow, or start an accounting practice.

Cindy Waite

The study materials are great. I am currently employed full-time, retiring in January, 2005. I had accounting in 1974 in graduate school (Purdue University) but it wasn’t this exciting. I have found my true “passion” in life taking this course. I have been in IT for the past 26 years, but this is truly my calling. Sorry, I didn’t mean to get into this now but I get so excited!!!!

Three years ago I found myself unemployed after returning from a career tour in Japan. As I was looking through the classified I came across an advertisement placed there by Universal Accounting, telling about an accounting course they offered. My husband attended the class with me as moral support, however, he was so impressed with th presentation that he along with me, registered to start the next sesstion.

Universal Accounting has given me this opportunity to be home an available for my chidren and grandchildren.

Without the support we have received from Universal accounting our failure would of been emanate. To them we give many thanks.

Linda Henderson

Thanks for the opportunity. Your curriculum was very student-centered. I was especially impressed with the marketing.

Tom Wood

Truly appreciated attending. It was immensely informative and first-class all the way! Thank you to all of the staff and thank you Allen!!!

Mary P.

Although my University training was wonderful. This class has given me the direction and confidence I need to make my accounting business succeed. Thank you.

Suzanne Wickerd

The training that I have received in this course has been exactly what I have been looking for in many years. Although I had just finished a 10-week course on accounting, I still learned many new and interesting facts about accounting/bookkeeping in the real world. I highly recommend this course to anyone.

Judy Corona

I have more confidence in my understaning at commercial bookeeping.

Marshall Eastman

The program delivers what it promises: practical small
business accounting that isn’t taught in the
universities. I wish I’d had this course before I
started my first job in public accounting 10 years
ago. After years of applying tax law and regulations
(mostly with nonprofits) while someone else did the
bookkeeping and write-up, I found myself embarrassingly
deficient in certain aspects of small business
accounting and accounting software. Now that I have my
own tax practice, I need to fill in the gaps. This
course (and the QuickBooks course) fits the bill. I find the practical approach by Allen Bostrom very
valuable and many CPA’s, especially those wanting to
start their own practice, would benefit immensely from
the bookkeeping course.

David McRee

I purchased the course as a review for myself, but also as a training tool for my two employees. My employees have a working knowledge in their areas of expertise (payroll and accounts payable); but little or no book knowledge of the complete accounting process…we are all impressed with the ease with which we are picking up and retaining the information.

Wendy Sines

I really enjoyed the class. Now I feel I can really do this and make a living of it.

Marie X

In four weeks, your course taught me everything, and I mean everything, I would need to know about starting my home bookkeeping business. I am making more money than I did when I was employed full-time and I arrange my schedule to fit my needs, not arrange my life to fit my job’s. I can honestly say, this was the best investment I have ever made in my life!

S. Myers

Thank you very much for the terrific bookkeeping course. I have just completed it and must tell you that this is undoubtedly the best bookkeeping/accounting course I have ever taken. I really learned a lot from your vast experience and expertise.

I was not new to accounting when I started it. I have taken accounting classes at the University before, however, your course gave me not only the experience in handling the books for quite a varity of businesses but most of all the confidence to start my own bookkeeping practice. I enjoyed the classes immensely. I liked very much the way you presented many of the accounting principles and concepts: you really made it look very simple and logical.

Also, many thanks for the newsletters. What a marvelous wealth of information! The same can said about the Universal Accounting Center’s website which is one of the best I have seen in the recent times.

Once again, many, many and many thanks for the course. What I have learned from it , no school has ever given me.

V. B.

I really appreciate your patience and overall interest, which has allowed me to finally complete this course.

Andrea Andrus

I came to this class with an associates degree. I had been working for a CPA firm since college and wanted to start my own business. This class was a wonderful review for things I had not been able to do in my job so I had not seen them since college. This class also has a great marketing strategy. They teach you step by step how to acquire clients and get your business off the ground. Taking this course brought my self confidence to the level I needed it to be to tackle the hurdles of getting my own business.

Dana Allred

I am so excited and confident to start my own business. This class has been so educating and a positive experience. I really learned the accounting system inside and out. The knowledge I have gained is more than I ever expected. Thank you so very much for the experience I have had during this course.

Lisa Mandryk

I’ll recommend your training to others.

Bobbie LouAnderson

The learning experience I have had in this class has been beyond anything I have ever had. Learning more than I thought possible in such a short time.

Linda Henderson

I believe that it’s courses will be a highly worthwhile addition to the range of programs now offered by post-secondary educational institutions within the state.

W. Seganish

I found out about this course on the internet. After going through all the parts I found it of great value. The instructor was excellent.

Lata Kirpalani

A lot of material covered in 4 weeks. The course is well worth the time and expense.

Randy Humphrey

At all the institutions of learning that I have attended, I have never met anyone who is as outstanding, helpful, knowledgeable, and concerned as you are. I will soon have a position, but will not soon forget your help during this difficult time. Thank you for keeping in touch.

Benjamin York

If someone is looking for a short term accounting course that will give them everything they need to set up their own business, I highly recommend Universal Accounting Center’s Cours. I found UAC to be very credible and provided everything they said they would at a resonalbe price compared to other courses.

Kathy Bird

I think the course is very good.

Maria Zamudio

Even students with no accounting background finish the course with a full knowledge of the bookkeeping and accounting systems in various fields. Thank you very much for the excellent program.

Estelita Marchard

This class is great! I took this class five years ago. I started my bookkeeping business immediately after graduating. Everything that is taught in this class is used in the real world.

Lori Hurd

This course offers a comprehensive review of the accounting process, as well as providing a system to help you help yourself. The instructors not only teach, but offer an unheard of level of support. I would highly recommend the course to anyone.

Laura Ogden

I would refer anyone to take this class.

Jackie Hansen

This is an excellent course for those of you who don’t have the patience for college. The detail and attention you receive from the instructors is great.

Ken Coon

The best part was that it gave me the courage and confidence to start my own business, which has been a dream of mine for years.

C. Christensen

Provides excellent training opportunities. Definitely worthwhile to help focus and obtain goals.

Judy Testori

I anjoyed this a lot and I’m excited about starting my own Business and being my own boss!

Rachel Crout

This course is an absoulute “must” for people wanting to start their own business. The intructors were very refreshing and blended humor with their teaching. I was never bored and learned more information in one month than I did in a year of college. You can not go wrong with this class. It’s the best.

Chris Sakellarion

I have enjoyed this class. I feel it was what I needed to completely understand a bookkeeping system.

Claudel Andrew

I completed your accounting course and I am in the process of merchandising my company. I just finished reading your book, “in the BLACK” and found it to be a an excellent explanation of what to do to run a successful business. It was concise and well written. It can be a most useful marketing tool for people like myself.

Bob Pape

Thanks to Universal Accounting, I have already started putting together my new business.

Christopher Chaput

My experience with UAC was fantastic! I had absolutely no previous accounting knowledge and I now feel that I can go out and market myself effectively. I also have a set of skills that will allow me to work from home and earn an income doing a legitimate job, not some “get rich quick” scheme. I would recommend this program to anyone. And if you’ve already signed up- Congratulations! You won’t regret it.

Donna Fisher

I was so impressed with the course that I took with Universal. In a few short weeks they were able to give me the tools and the confidence to embark on a new career.

Barbara Deputy

Although I came into the class with quite a bit of accounting experience, I was able to get valuable experience in areas I was never able to work with and also received a greater understanding of the processes I have already worked with.

Robert Ivain

I believe that I gained not only enough knowledge to talk with them [bank, bookkeeper, and accountants], but also have enough understanding to show them how I would like our financials to read so that it makes more sense to our business and the way we do business.

Bruce Kartchner

Workshop was great! It gave me the excitement and confidence to do my business.

Sharon Orlansky
Press & Publicity

Appreciated the class.

Charlette Sorensen

I learned a lot, and feel much more ready to go forth now and utilize my knowledge.

Clover Marks

Having attended university courses, I found the UAC approach- from people actually working in the real world at what they are teaching- far superior. The commitment to stand behind the student with problems they may encounter in their practice is remarkable and totally unexpected.

Theron Butler

I appreciate the service of being able to refer back to the class or receive additional help as questions arise in the business. I have found UAC to be very friendly and professional.

Jack Brinkenhoff

I knew nothing of accounting before I took this class and now I feel I have a good working knowledge of bookkeeping and starting a business.

S. David

I have been an accountant for 20 years. The course is wonderful. The marketing ideas are great, and it is nice to be able to go back into the manuals and re-visit technical ideas. UAC is right on with the technical & practical knowledge. I aquire about 2-3 new clients per month.

Gayle Kendall

This is the BEST accounting course I have ever taken. I have done taxes in my home for the last ten years and was a full charge bookkeeper for several years.

TIna Parmigiano

Based on my class experience, I think I have learned a sufficient amount to open my own bookkeeping service or obtain employment as a basic accountant with confidence.

Larry Cho

I really have thoroughly enjoyed the Universal Accounting Course. I have had previous experience in bookkeeping,/ accounting and I still learned so much. Each class was informative and enjoyable. All the instructors were wonderful and willing to help and answer any questions

Jill Pack

I have really enjoyed this course and I was very impreased with the amount of very useful information. I will recommend this course to anyone intereded.

Vinny Langley

I’ve worked in accounting for 3 years and this course improved my accounting knowledge immensely. It has given me the confidence in myself that I need to present my skills effectively.

Denise Brown

I have a B.S. degree in Business Management and find that the information received in this course is more useful today than the degree. The pride that the instructors took in taking the time with the students reflects well upon themselves, the course and the staff of Universal Accounting.

Jon Clark

Even though I have an extensive background in accounting, I learned many things in class that were new to me and in many cases, it was as though a light went on. I would say to myself, “so that’s why a thing is done a particular way.” Thank you so much for helping me!

Joe Hanson

I was very concerned with accumulating more debt to take this class after just having bought a new home. I came on my wife’s faith, not my own and I will be forever greatful.

Dave Jacobs

I was amazed how practical this course was and surprised how much I learned. Having an accounting degree and over 12 years experience in accounting, I didn’t realize how much I didn’t know.

A. Moody

I was impressed with the clear and understandable method that “Universal Accounting Institute” presented the bookkeeping and accounting systems. The printed materials were well written for information and practice sets.

I felt the course provided excellent training in a multitude of different types of businesses.

Lynn Jones

I took the accounting class through Universal Accounting. It was the encouragement I needed to do a good job and the confidence I could succeed.

I am also picking up a client on the side, and am grateful for the chance for him.

Becci Anthon

Thank you so much for all the valuable information and training I received in your institute. Though I have an accounting degree, I never knew how much I am missing until I graduated at your school.

Mourad Bishara

This was a fun and baluable brush-up fro someone who has been out of the loop for almost 10 years. I covered almost as much in 4 weeks as I did in 2 years.

Neil

Before taking this class at Universal Accounting my knowledge of accounting seemed to be limited to what my business accountant and tax preparer would tell me.

Now however, the training and knowledge obtained is only a starting point to where I am going to take this.

Richard Schultz

I thoroughly enjoyed the course with te classroom situation. Als, I already had my own busiess going and the courses have really helped to steer me in the right directions and I love the fact that I have been able to achieve another certificate for display on my office wall. I believe that gives me more credibility.

Marilyn Hill

An excellent course-which makes understanding accounting as clear as anything I have been to even after several college accounting courses. It provides the knowledge and self confidence to be very productive as bookkeepers or accountants

Larry Brown

It’s been a great experience. A lot of great information packed into 4 weeks.

Brian Murdock

This course was very comprehensive. It is far better than any other course I have taken and covers areas that would not be covered in any other classroom situation.

Fay Farr

The money I have spent here (which is not much to me)was worth my time and efforts of getting here! I have learned more than I can spend

Ruth Jacobsen

I’ve learned far more that I ever expected and feel very confident that my sister and I can make this happen.

S. Moyer

This class was a wonderful break from traditional schooling. I learned more in the first night of this class than in two and a half years of University schooling.

Danielle Nelson

Now that I am a little less stressed and so happy that the final is over, I want to tell you that overall my experience with Universal Accounting was stupendous. I have found two jobs, one working for a home inspector and one for a nonprofit. I am studying just as hard as ever to learn
about nonprofits, grants, nonrestricted funds, etc. You gave me a sound base to build on. Many, many thanks! I do plan to learn tax preparation but I had better concentrate on nonprofits for a bit.

Jayne Krauss

Thank you for a wonderful course.
I greatly appreciate the knowledge and practice gained from your course.
I feel I have greater confidence in understanding the accounts on financial statements.
The experience has been a real help as I change careers-and I will recommend UAC to others.

Robert

The course was excellent

Ray Pittenger

After taking the Professional Bookkeeper program I have acquired one very large client that takes about 50-80% of my time all at $60/hr, and five small clients.

Micki Chikwinya

This accounting course is the best schooling I have ever received. It covers all the basic and advanced principles in accounting. I have really enjoyed this class very much. Thank you for taking the time and effort in teaching and helping me understand all the principles.

Lawrence Rosenhall

When I started with this course, I didn’t really believe I would be able to start my own business. I am now confident that with Unviersal’s help, I will be able to build a successful and profitable business. This has been a very positive experience.

Ranae Colby

Thanks to everyone at UAC.

Jane Barry

I highly recommend the class

Jan Cannon

What a valuable course! It’s nice to not only have the knowledge, but the actual skills to start my own home-based business. The hands-on training has made me extremely confident in my accounting and bookkeeping skills. This type of training is the key to being successful in the field of bookkeeping.

Marci McQuivey

This was a great experience . I have worked in bookkeeping for 14 years and now finally undertand the debit/credit terms and how they relate to accounting. I was just doing what that been told.
Your course a presentation are excellent. I’m a former teacher and was rather surprised.
It amazed me that you were able to successfully teach us as much as you did in such a short time.
In other words, you are great.

Gayle LaPearle

I would recommend this course to everyone with a serious desire to do accounting or even just a personal interest.

Scott Wyness

I truly enjoyed the Samll Business Accounting Course and would recommend it most highly to anyone who is interested in learning the Accounting buisness. The instructors are very supportive and have ways to make the lessons interesting and enjoyable. The materials are paced so as not to overwhelm and give the extremely valuable information and practice that is so very important to any course of study.

Wendy Hemmert

I am so pleased with my decision on choosing Universal Accounting for my training. Everyone that I have had contact with has been helpful in every way. Thanks to everyone at Universal Accounting.

Pamela Johnson

This economy has a need for well trained accounting personnel and Universal Accounting is supplying just that. The intensive training your graduates receive is a highly marketable asset in todays market. Dollar for dollar I have found no better educational value than Universal Accounting Program. Your candidates are a valuable resource to our operation and are easily placable in the majority of positions.

Brett Thompson

I am so pleased with my decision on choosing Universal Accounting for my training. Everyone that I have had contact with has been helpful in every way. Thanks to everyone at Universal Accounting.

Pamela Johnson

I must say I was pleasantly surprised. I found myself understanding concepts I never thought I could. It was exciting to do my homework and learn something new.

Lesa Bryant

This course was a great review on the basics and was packed full of information that will give me the confidence to make this major change in my life.

Deborah Bybee

I have not had any accounting experience at all. Now I am confident that I will be able to succeed in a new career.

Marshall Metcalf

The Small Business Accounting class was one of the most enjoyable and probably the most useful and practical I have ever taken. That includes the MBA I recently received.

N. Lee

This course is excellent. I was impressed with the material. Even my college courses were not this in-depth. I now feel I can do this on my own.

Becky Olson

I really enjoyed the class. UT was so good to get good hands on experience as well as the learning and knowledge.

Raul Henderson

I thought the class was excellent, I have very little experience in bookkeeping but I feel very good about what I have learned.

Barbara Sargent

I really enjoyed the course. I learned a lot more than I expected, my tax accountant will be so happy that I can be of help to him instead of a hindrance.

Judy Corrigan

Excellent Company the people really care about their students. I really feel they want to see their students succeed. It is a pleasure to do business with UAC. This was an excellent workshop. There was a lot of quality material presented by some excellent and sometimes even funny instructors. I walked in with no plans and walked out with a special plan of action to help market and grow my practice to the next level.

Pete Marchiano

Although I had no accounting/bookkeeping experience since my college years in the late 60’s, the format and logical sequence of the class was such that the material came back to me easier than anticipated. I sincerely appreciate your instruction and highly recommend this course.

Len Allen

When the company I work for told me I was going to an accounting class that would last 4 weeks and at the end of these four short weeks I would be able to not only do the accounting for the business I work for, but be totally capable of starting my own accounting business, I almost burst out laughing. I tell you now at the end of my 4th week that I am not only not laughing but I passed this class with an A! I not only know what I was taught, but I really understand the material too.

Jeanette Conant

I want to let you and your team at Universal Accounting know that I have retired….I wish to express my appreciation to you and your company, especially David and Alan for all that you did for Canwest Accounting and myself. Your ideas and support were very beneficial in improving Canwest Accounting to the point that it had considerable value when I sold it to Sharlane. I am financially able to enjoy a comfortable retirement… My biggest regret is that I did not begin my association with Universal Accounting 10 years sooner.

Things that I found beneficial were your concept and advice on marketing (a major weakness in bookkeepers and accountants ); pricing and how to sell the value, and the financial reports that compare my client with others in the same industry.

Norman Arden

I currently run 3 businesses out of my home. I enrolled in the course to try to enhance these businesses and to organize my accounting.
I am very excited about coming into this course with ABSOLUTELY NO accounting experience and coming out feeling very knowledgeable and confident.

Irene Casper

I wound highly recommend this course. I felt Universal was professional in marketing and presention the program. They did what they said they would do no gimmicks.

Marilyn Thompson

This is an excellent course.

Krishna Bhatt

The subject matter covered in your course has been invaluable. I have worked in the accounting field for the past six years; your course gave me the training and confidence I needed to advance in this area.

G. Morton

I was particularly impressed with your ability to make accounting concepts simple. I am surprised at how much I was able to learn from you in just four weeks.

S. Patrick

This is the BEST accounting course I have ever taken. I have done taxes in my home for the last ten years and was a full charge bookkeeper for several years. All I can say is Thank God he sent me in the path of your website. Your videos had me answering all of Alan’s questions as if I was right there.

Tina Parmigiano

The Universal Accounting Course is a course I would recommend to anyone with an interest in learning applied accounting techniques; be they totally new to the accounting field or with years of experience.

C. Sikes

This course is fantastic. It is better than any course I have had in college.

Karen Seidl

I was hired in Director of Finance division at my current job. I was up for VP of Finance. With the usefulness and immediate application of this course, I was a shuin for the position. As the 4 weeks unfolded- I was able to immediately apply the information almost daily. My goal is to build my retirement fund by building my business.
I would recommend this class to anyone who wants to enhance their competency in accounting and bookkeeping

Jackie M

I would recommend this course to any accountant

Mike Whittle

I have never felt so well equipped to go after my dreams and fullfill it.

Rochelle Wallace

As a degreed accountant, I was greatly benefited by this course. Although I have been in private practice for 5 years or more, I still found much to recommend.

Gerald Gudmundson

I knew I needed help marketing my business from the moment I first thought about starting a business. I am an accountant, not a marketing specialist – marketing is like a foreign language to me. I had no idea how to start marketing my business and myself, I needed someone to take me by the hand and lead me step-by-step through the entire marketing process…

With Rick helping me, my networking experience has been nothing short of a miracle. Although I still need some polishing, I have discovered that it is not how professional you sound, but how sincere you are. There is a wealth of people in the business world that want to help you succeed… I no longer feel like a meek little office mouse. I feel enormous pride when I tell people that I am a profit and growth expert who owns a local business.

My confidence in myself and in my skills has grown so much. If you do what your coach asks you to do, you cannot help but succeed.

Jeanenne Leven

After ordering the Professional Bookkeeper program we have developed a very successful practice

Roe Fisher

Because of all your good training, I now have two clients and am working on a third before I’ve even sent out my letters. I just took your advice to contact firms in the paper who needed bookkeepers and used my resume to get in the door.

Lee Ann Bonacker

This course was outstanding. It was like sitting in a classroom , but with the comforts of home. I have all the materials to refer to and I have someone to call to help me get my business started and provide the support needed.

Rena Claxton

This is the first time I have taken a DVD course and I loved it! It was great to be able to start and stop as needed and to be able to replay a section for clarity. The course materials are great!

Laurie Rees

The broad exposure to a wide variety of businesses provided me with valuable information that I was unaware of before. I now feel more qualified because of this course.

Kent Larson

I took this course after having earned a bachelor’s degree and then working for a CPA firm for nearly ten years. This was a tremendous course! The materials handed out were very clear, the working practice sets very appropriate and very reflective of the work world I have been a part of for nearly a decade. I am glad these competent professionals took time out of their lives to invest some tremendous tools into my livelihood.

Bruce Bushman

I really appreciate this course.

S A

I have really enjoyed the course. I have learned things that I am confident will help me get my own business started. I have 10 years of banking experience and have seen the need for competent accounting/bookkeeping. There are too many bookkeeping services that really don’t know what they are doing, so I am excited to contact prior bank customers that I know need help with their accounting.

Jared Gieue

I was very pleased with the class. I feel what learned is very useful and pratical and feel prepared to open for business, thanks.

Roxane Smith

I have the skills to go out and set up and run either an existing or brand new business.

Tyler Clark

This course has literally changed my life! Now I have the confidence to tackle almost any type of business and do their books.

Adam Moody

The Universal Accounting Center’s method of teaching has given me more knowledge in four weeks than in two years of Business College.
I cannot say enough good things about this course, and the material.

Paula Molenaar

I found the accounting course to be very thorough.

My self assurance about becoming an accountant/bookkeeper has been elevated to the point that I am now certain that I can be as successful as I would like to be in as short a period of time as I want.
To my, pleasant surprise, the level of expertise is far greater than I had expected in regard to the length of the coarse and the cost. I have checked into several other programs lasting 2 or 3 times longer and costing 4 or 5 times as much. I whole heartedly recommend this to anyone who would be interested in a career in accounting or going into business for themselves.

R S

I really enjoyed this class. My eyes were open to so many mistakes we made in owning my own business. This has been very helpful

Cerola Claderwood

This course was primarily a review for me. I have a CPA, MS in accounting and MBA. However, it was valuable in that one learned how to do bookkeeping for small business. That is not covered at the University level.

Nancy Barth

I am a little scared, but very excited to begin doing the bookkeeping for clients and I know feel more confident after taking the course.

Claire Wimmer

I enjoyed the class very much. The instructors were extremely conscientious and concerned about my understanding of the material. The material was much more than I anticipated and very much aprreciated. Thanks again.

Melinda Hoffman

I went to school for accounting and I learned things my first week that made what I learned in school make sense.

Colleen Ruth

I have been very impressed by how much we have learned in such a short time. I had no experience in any accounting but I was still able to complete this course. I would recommend this class to anyone that is interested in accounting.

Marianne Johansen

I wanted to drop you a line to say thanks for the well taught classes. The information presented will be invaluable to me as I start my new freelancing career. I am happy to announce that my business is up and running. I really enjoyed the classes.

Edward Kaczka

The best part was that it gave me the courage and confidence to start my own business, which as been a dream of mine for years.

C. Christensen

When Mike Kalous was laid-off in February 2009 from the Colorado construction company he was working at, he was naturally nervous. After unsuccessful job searches for comparable comptroller jobs within a couple hours drive, panic set in.

“I was really sweating it,” he said. “I was looking at possibly commuting to Denver, (more than a four-hour drive) and thinking we might have to sell the house and start renting,” he said.

In March, Kalous did some research online and found Universal Accounting. He ordered the Professional Bookkeeping and Quickbooks course of DVDs immediately.

Within a short time period, he used the tips he learned from the workshop DVDs, talked to two people, and secured three clients for his new company, Valley Vista Business Services.

“I was getting my car worked on, and I asked the owner, ‘Who does your accounting?'” Not only was he able to sign him on, but also the man’s wife. The third client was a friend of Kalous.

Since then, Kalous has been adding at least two clients a month. On one November day alone, he added three; two through referrals and one acquaintance.

In May, Kalous, encouraged by his success, took Universal Accounting’s Practice Builder Live Workshop, and then enrolled in the Client Generator Program from June to September. The Client Generator is a 90-day intensive program that combines the power of Universal Accounting’s Master Coaching, marketing products, and marketing coordinators, where Universal Accounting actually finds clients for you.

He did confess, that because of the cost, he and his wife were a little hesitant, but Kalous had reminded her of the success of the other programs.

“I definitely would not be where I am today without the Client Generator Program. It is a fantastic program and I highly recommend it,” he said.

This year Kalous’ goal was to obtain 11 new clients, which he met in September, and by the end of the year, he expects to hire his first employee.

“My previous job I was the assistant comptroller making about $72,000, and I thought I might make two-thirds of that by myself,” he said. However, after participating in the client-builder program, he and his coach, set Kalous’ long term goal as making a six-figure income.

“My long term goal is much larger than I had imagined when I started my business,” he said. “But now it is attainable in 2010.”

Kalous’ success has been recognized by Universal Accounting and he recently spoke at a UPB Live Conference where one of the students asked him if he was offered a job as a comptroller, making more than $100,000, if he would take it.

“I said, ‘No way would I take that job; things are much better through Universal Accounting.'” Kalous went on to say that he won’t go back to work for somebody else. He explained that he might lose a couple of clients here and there, but he will never lose his income again.

Mike Kalous

I was very pleased with Universal Accounting. Their program help me to establish a good solid business and gave me the confidence I needed so badly at that time. I would recommend this program to anyone and I have sent at least 2 people in at my recommendation. Thank You.

Nadine Gibby

Coming from not knowing a thing about accounting, this class was very interesting and gave me all the information I needed to get me through it.

Trish Ambeau

I have enjoyed every class. In flowed very well. The video were very good. Thank you so much.

Meralyn Chipman

I would like to thank Universal Accounting and all the instructors for being so profesional and helping me understand A/C for the first time. I have been to many courses as well as during my own books just keeping the ledger etc.

Heather Van Zyl

The Universal Accounting course was very informative and helpful, and well surpassed my expectations.

David Mclatchie

I just completed the Professional Bookkeeping Course at UA and received high enough marks to qualify for the designation. Words cannot describe how much your course has contributed to my knowledge and confidence in going out there and getting clients.

In the past, I have attended different courses that related to the Canadian General Accounting designation that I was planning to achieve. Although some of the professors at the college were good, the courses were very expensive and difficult to follow. I had to drop out because my mother was ill, and I never went back.

Wishing that I would have taken this course first before going for the CGA. This, I would strongly recommend to anyone who is planning to become an Accountant to take this course first.

Thank you very much for your wonderful lectures. Looking forward in completing the Quick Books and the Universal Practice Builder program.

Nicoletta Romita

I now have many ideas for starting my own business and because this is my first experience in accounting, I feel very comfortable knowing I can come back for information any time.

Cindy Murray

I was amazed how practical this course was, and surprised how much I learned. Having an accounting degree and over 12 years experience in accounting, I didn’t realize how much I didn’t know.

P. Lufkin

The Universal Accounting Course was just what I had been looking for for a long time.
UAC has helped me to now feel confident that I can start a successful accounting business.
I would highly recommend this class to anyone.

Rebecca Lorton

This is the third accounting class I’ve taken and the only one in which I have obtained a comoplete picture of the accounting process.

Holly Cook

The accounting course is excellent and teaches all one needs to know to begin their own accounting business. I thoroughly enjoyed the course and would recommend it to anyone who is interested in starting their own bookkeeping business.

Robert Ames

I learned a lot. This course has given me the confidence to go out and start my own business.

Rita Neve

I have really enjoyed the class. It was a great learning experience.

Sheila Vicory

I was very please with the course and material that was covered. I feel that I was able to learn a lot more and have a better understanding of Accounting and Bookkeeping. I have an Associates degree in Accounting and did not feel that I was as qualified as I am now.

Theresa Lewis

My husband is doing the class right now and two of my daughters will be taking it this summer. I have recommended it to many. I tell anyone who is even slighly interested in keeping books to take this course.

Sherry Kurtz

I have learned more from UA than I did attending two private colleges! With sincere appreciation.

Jan Sulak

I don’t remember the exact words or who said it, but when I called Universal for help I heard…forget the business plan, you need to focus on getting clients. I followed Universal’s marketing plan to the T. I took another wrong turn and discovered, as Roger with Universal predicted, most to all churches have bookkeepers from their congregation to do the books. My first ten letters, in the third business I visited, I got my first client! Fortunately for me, my new client already established Quickbooks software with payroll services. I cannot begin to say how much I have learned from working with my first client! I called Universal Accounting Center for help. Alan said bring everything down! So I did. He went through each item and explained step by step what I needed to do. My hope is to attend Universal Accounting Center’s next tax class in the fall. Maybe I can prepare my client’s federal taxes for 2003! I cannot begin to thank all the people at Universal Accounting Center. Ken and Alan have always been patient and caring with me. Roger motivates me to keep my business growing through recruiting new clients. The office staff has always been courteous. Patience and kindness go a long way when it feels like you are out there on your own. Universal Accounting Center provides me with that home base feeling that I am not alone; there is support and assistance if I need it. Thank you Universal for helping me to realize my dream. I should have started recruiting clients as soon as I completed the course. Roger was a big help in getting me started with recruiting clients. As a freelance entrepreneur it is crucial to have supportive affiliation.

Sandra Berger

I’ve worked in different aspects of accounting and bookkeeping for the last 20 years. This class is GREAT! I’ve learned things I’ve never heard of before like flooring, jobs in progress. The knowledge that you all have shared will help me greatly in getting my home business going. It’s great to be able to see the work from beginning to end. I would highly recommend this class to anyone. Thanks again!

Carey Christensen

I appreciated the information presented in the four weeks of this class because it was well prepared and also because it prepared me well for entering the field of accounting as a profession.

Scott Lewis

I have really enjoyed being a student in the class. It is amazing to me the amount of information I have learned in the last 4 weeks. I would recommend this course to anyone. Well worth the money.

Katrina Mitchell

I learned so much in such an easy way.

Shauna Dalton

The course was great and so was the individual attention when needed. I would gladly recommend this course to anyone.

Sharyn Brooks

I have more understanding and confidence now as I work with the books for my emplyer and know I can have a skill to fall back on should I need it later on.

Linda Krumenacker

Coming from managing operations in small businesses, this course closed all the loopholes. It’s great to know exactly where those numbers come from. Lots & lots of great ideas and stories!

Heather Grotepas

I have derived many benefits from your course. I have much more confidence in my financial matters, even if I didn’t plan to start a business, just the confidence and understanding combined with a greater ability to calculate and problem-solve has changed my life for good.

Robert Fisher

This was an excellent course. I have a B.S. in accounting, and this class taught me stuff I never learned in college. I feel very prepared to start my business.

Catherine Ferguson

I have had quite a bit of accounting training in college. What I gained from these classes will continue to be a great value to me. My commitment to this course has given me the experience and confidence I was looking for.

John Town

This class has been a great experience for me. I’ve learned a lot more than I expected I would.

Stacey Martin

We have three accounts so far. Four others are possibilities. In one week we will be working on our first business loan package

William and Mrs. Olsen

I really needed this to refresh my memory and to give me assurance of my intent and ability to perform accounting functions. Thanks

Don Wyckoff

I would recommend this class to anyone because we all have to account for our money and taxes. It’s good to know where you stand financially.

Tamee Hallett

Heather Weiler had been working part-time for seven years as a bookkeeper for a graphic design firm when she decided it was time to take charge of her career. She wanted to run a bookkeeping practice from her home that would enable her to enjoy greater flexibility, spend more time with family and increase her income. But because her experience was in managing books for one industry, she decided more training was in order; she turned to Universal Accounting Center (UAC) for help.

The Professional Bookkeeper (PB) Program is specifically designed to help students master small-business accounting, which is not taught in the majority of other training and degree-based programs. Heather hand-picked this course for that reason as well as the fact that the video-based program enabled her to complete the training at her own pace. She explained, “The video training with UAC was great as I could go over a segment a few times if I needed to, and having someone explain how things work seemed to sink in better than reading it in a textbook. Also, I didn’t have to leave my house two nights a week to go out and do a course– I could do the work when it suited me, which worked really well with my work schedule and my family.”

Not only did the PB Program help Heather master small-business accounting, but it also taught her how to effectively market her practice. But being a bit more reserved, she struggled in the implementation of the marketing strategies she had learned; as a result, she decided to purchase Master Coaching as well, a program that pairs students with coaches who help them design a step-by-step plan to meet personal goals, identify potential obstacles and hurdle them.

Heather’s coach was Rick Howard, and the two immediately began to talk strategy regarding the successful launch of her practice. She said, “Rick always called promptly, and it was always pleasant to speak with him. Our sessions felt more like a conversation with an old friend who really wanted to help my business succeed, rather than being run through a checklist of ‘to-do’s’ by some executive who clearly didn’t want to be stuck dealing with such small scale business.”

Every week, for 12 weeks, Rick helped Heather implement the startup strategies she had learned in the PB program. She raved about her experience: “The PB training and the coaching program have changed my life. All the people I have dealt with at UAC are fantastic. They are knowledgeable, kind and helpful. They truly want to help people succeed in their own bookkeeping/accounting business. No matter what question I have asked, I have been treated with respect and have hung up the phone feeling empowered and excited to help small business owners gain control of their finances, which empowers the small business owners. It is a wonderful feeling to take what I know to help someone else and give them peace of mind about their business. I would recommend UAC to anyone who is thinking about starting their own bookkeeping business.”

Heather has since launched her own practice and was able to secure four clients in just six weeks! She credits Universal with providing her with all the necessary tools to launch a successful business.

Heather Weiler

As an owner of a small business, I really felt I needed a good background in bookkeeping and general accounting. On the advice of another pleased graduate, I enrolled in the course offered by Universal Accounting Center. The instruction I received far surpassed my expectations and I now feel in control of my books and my business.

Kimberly Keeferhicks

Being almost 68 years of age and having had minimal training and experience, primarily in bookkeeping- no accounting, I found this course to be very informative, stimulating, and challenging. The information presented covered a wide spectrum of business activities, thus broadening my appreciation for the various bookkeeping-accounting principles and their respective applications. My self-worth has increased dramatically. I look forward to doing work in this field to supplement my retirement income. Later on, I anticipate becoming an independent operator. Age is not a deterrent but an asset.

Arie Verdoorn

The Professional Bookkeeper program attracts those with a wide range of accounting backgrounds, some with no bookkeeping skills whatsoever. Krista Farmer is an example of how the Professional Bookkeeper program gives even the most experienced accountants the real-world skills they need to turn accounting knowledge into a great income!

When Krista discovered the Professional Bookkeeper program, she already had 10 years of accounting under her belt. She had even managed an accounting department at a major university, so she was certainly not lacking in skills or experience.

What universities don’t teach you about accounting is how to create a successful accounting and bookkeeping service out of the knowledge they teach. That’s where the Professional Bookkeeper program really came to Krista’s rescue. Its simple step-by-step marketing plan let Krista find a few clients to support on the side and grow her accounting practice from there. In Krista’s words, “Since I am not a risk taker by nature, I eased my way into my bookkeeping and accounting practice. Fortunately, the marketing tips provided in the program are so adjustable that I could use them to help build my business as slowly or as aggressively as I wanted, and so I have met my goal.”

Krista set a goal of making her accounting service fully operational by the summer of 2005. Well, she made it! She left the rat race of corporate accounting and began to work for small companies, where she enjoys the feeling of really making a difference. She has grown to love how her efforts have made her small-business clients more profitable and how much they appreciate her contribution to their success.

Krista also found that working for small businesses gave her the opportunity to find what she really excelled at. She found great satisfaction in making order from chaos with small-business clients that often lack an organized accounting system. Krista finds enjoyment in getting her clients organized and in showing them opportunities to keep more of the money they make.

Because Krista found the courage to take the first step towards making her dream of owning her own accounting service a reality, not only is she better off financially, but her life is much richer overall. Krista now has more time to spend on what matters most to her: her family. She finds more satisfaction working for herself than she ever could in a corporate setting. She truly feels that her work makes a difference and is truly appreciated.

Krista Farmer

I walked in knowing almost nothing about accounting and bookkeeping, and I moved on knowing more than I ever even thought existed.

Shannon-Dawn Hawk

I immediately began telling friends and acquaintenances I was an accountant. While talking on the phone with a friend, she said, “That’s just what I need! I need help getting my painting business in order.” So that’s how I got my first client….that easy. A few weeks later my first client’s friend opened an Italian restaurant up the road from her. My friend arranged for us to meet, and the lady was in desperate need of help. She was impressed with the services I could offer. I followed the billing calculation sheet exactly to figure the fee. Client #2! The lady who owns the restaurant has a brother who just opened his own business. I called the company, set an appointment to meet, and there you go…client #3! My fourth client came directly as a reference from a former classmate. As an average for each client I am making about $30-35 an hour. I’ve been able to quit my full time job. Thanks again to everyone at Universal Accounting Center! It has created for me a brighter outlook financially, as well as more free time in my personal life. And, I didn’t have to go to college for years and pay thousands of dollars for an education!

Sheila Thomas

I started this class so that I can become my own boss and run my own company. I had previously gone to College, and didn’t expect to learn much more than I did there. I was surprised! I am going out of this four week class with more knowledge and understanding than I thought possible. I finally see how it all falls together, and I have the confidence that I need to start my own business. I have even found myself understanding and doing better in my job now. I would recommend this class to anyone who wants to become a more valuable asset to the company they work for now, or start their own business and feel confident and sure they can do it. With this schooling you can and will!

Angela Blanchard

Universal Accounting is dedicated to my success and is evident by their dedication to teaching me the tools I must have to develop my business. The staff made sure when I left the seminar, that I was prepared and comfortable with moving ahead with business development.

Gary Fawcett

I was very happy with the class and the materials covered. The instructors were able to teach on a students level so the material is easy to understand.

Craig Chidester

I enjoyed the tapes and workbooks I passed recently with a 90. The idea of starting the business seems a little daunting but I’m working on getting past that fear.

Jennifer Johnson

I rate the entire course excelente teachers presentations, interest, subject, etc.
It was great I learned alot enjoyed it.

Marilyn Baldonado

I have learned more than I thought I would.

Ray

I believe that an open mind no matter the level of one’s knowledge in accounting, something can be learned here.

P S

After several years away from the accounting field I felt apprehensive about beginning to keep books again.
This course has been exactly what I was looking for.
An excellent course with lots of information. The instructor presented the material in an understandable and interesting maner. I would recommend the course to beginning bookkeepers and trained accountants alike.

Roland Binghom

I chose Universal Accounting because they are a real school. With real experience. A real company with real solutions focused on MY market ? the small biz market. No one else does that! They appealed to me because I know the value of financial literacy. The price was worth it to me because I approach business as a business. Not a business that cleans houses, but a business that has a financial structure that makes sense. To the point that if a biz does not have a proper financial structure, in my mind it is no business at all, regardless of the net profit. And UA differentiated itself as a school / company who recognizes that difference and who specializes in that difference.

Purchase Motivation ? UA?s ad appeared during a Google search when I was searching specifically for a proven, franchise-like course that showed step-by-step how to start and successfully grow an accounting business. And they offered a FREE CD! Which massively appealed to my value-oriented, entrepreneurial mind, i.e. their primary target market.

Product Acceptance
a. Functionality ? Gave me control, i.e. predictability of success in my business. Isn?t that what accounting is really about?!
b. Sensory Impact ? Professional DVDs that ?put me in the classroom?. Current, relevant information and knowledge. NOT rehashed, out-of-date, rah rah stuff.
c. Unconscious Associations ? Appealed to my desire and need to be an effective entrepreneur in control of my own destiny
d. Conscious-Mind Conclusions ? What I remember considering when I was deciding to buy this course or not was the testimonials from the students with accounting degrees and the students in corporate accounting positions who consistently said that this course taught them the fundamental accounting systems and logic that is hidden in the background by software-based accounting systems. His insistence on ?long hand? accounting so that I would finish this course understanding the ?hows? and ?whys?. This was valuable to me whether I decided to start an accounting business OR (and still) if I decided to start an unrelated business (which I did). I still needed this knowledge. There were many other subtleties that factored into my decision but this was the major issue for me personally.
e. Access / Convenience ? I was able to educate myself fully on this product from their website. I called their salespeople for specific questions. I was not interested in financing but it gave me confidence that they believed in their product enough to offer it. I ordered it via phone and it would show up in its entirety in a few days. This was important because I had plans to consume this course at an accelerated rate (which I did). And there was always someone there who would pick up the phone and explain to me any concepts that I just couldn?t get from the DVDs. I didn?t need to because the course is extremely well done and understandable.
I prefer UA because of their professional DVD ?classroom experience? course that explains the fundamentals of accounting that is relevant to the small business owner in a systemized way. They have the experience. And they are the only people who do this in this way!

James Chason

My current clients have recognized the changes and appreciate them greatly.

Scott Christensen

There is absolute dedication that the institue gives to seeing each sutdent succeed. I haven’t found this type of concern in any other type of formal education.

Daniel Paturn

The Universal Accounting Course is a very complete informational class. Even with an accounting background, it puts the bookkeeping principles together from beginning to endo so clearly.

Diane Bodily

This course is a must for anyone considering an accounting career.

Anthony Morrison

Richard Klabunde had tried launching his own practice five times with no luck. Following each unsuccessful attempt, he went to work fulltime for another company. But when he found himself out of work at 55 years old, he knew it was time to try something different.

Richard had been doing bookkeeping, accounting and tax work since he was 19-years old, so he definitely had the necessary skillset to manage his own financial practice. But he was in desperate need of some new marketing techniques which he hoped Universal Accounting Center could provide. In November, 2010 he enrolled in the Universal Practice Builder (UPB) Program, which he followed up with more UA training: the Professional Tax Preparer Program and the Professional Professional Bookkeeper’s Guide to QuickBooks. Just one year later, in November, 2011, Richard opened his own office which now serves over 100 tax and bookkeeping clients!

He explains, “I could not have done it without the marketing program. I know this for a fact after the 5 previous attempts.”

Richard now has the confidence that he can secure new clients anytime he markets his practice. And while he loves his current location, which boasts a sign that can be seen two blocks away, he knows that his new-found marketing expertise would enable him to start a new business anywhere he needed to go.

Richard enjoys many benefits in owning a successful tax and accounting practice. He lives in a two-story condo above his office and has the best commute! Richard thinks his boss is the nicest guy, and the flexible work schedule and proximity to home enable him to be there whenever his disabled wife may need him.

As for the work Richard does, he loves helping individuals and small businesses succeed. He stands behind his work and talks to clients in such a way that they always feel respected. They’re also confident that there’s no problem with which Richard can’t help them.

When asked the key to his success, Richard says, “Just lucky—at least, that is what it looks like. Or it could be having the right office, having the right contacts, finding the right clients, getting referrals from everywhere, the right business card, a sign that can be seen two blocks away, and being a nice guy. Of course, some might say I have a good marketing program.”

And to those who may be considering Universal training, Richard says that unless you know more about starting and growing a practice, you should give Universal a try. “If you do,” he says, “the work you do will be successful.”

Richard Klabunde

The course is excellent! All of the instructors are friendly and very knowledgable. The material is covered in fun and interesting ways, with examples from various companies books being used. The amount of information I obtained from the class surpassed what I had anticipated.

Colin Luckau

The course was challenging and informative by the end of the four weeks I was amazed at how much I had learned.After going through this course I now have the knowledge, confidence and support I need to be successful. I’m so glad I took UAC’s course .

Miriam Coons

The training I received in your class was superb, exactly what I needed for the type of accounting business I was trying to start. Now I do the accounting and tax work for about 25 companies and have more than doubled my earnings. I can honestly say that the hands-on training from Universal Accounting Center was far more helpful than that of my degree program.

Scott Ivins

This class has been just what the doctor ordered. I have loved every second. It has offered not only invaluable accounting training, but it has energized me so greatly. I have had a ball– I didn’t know school could be such fun.

Gayle Morton

I thoroughly enjoyed this class. The “hands on” training and support made it an exceptional course for the career minded individual.

Ruth Hansen

Best wishes to all who choose to take a leap of faith and believe in themselves. You can do it.

Kim Auten

This course filled what other schools that I have attended lacked. Practical and real life accounting situations were taught. I now know how to set up an accounting system from scratch.

Neale Davis
About Us

I attended this course one year ago. Since then, I’ve started my own business in Property Maintenance. We keep our own books with confidence because of this course. I work full time for the National Guard and just got interviewed for a budget assistant job. This course has taught me what I’ve needed to know. It’s a good course for anyone in business to take.

Stephen Walden

It has always been my dream to have my own accounting business which I could operate from my home. I know that I now have the information and tools to do this

Kristine Ellers

The classes were very interesting, informative.

Charlotte Hanson

I really enjoyed taking this course. If I had the time I would take it again. I think I will enjoy being an accountant/bookkeeper. I wish I would have done it earlier.

Samantha Wolf

I really enjoyed the course. I have really learned a lot that can be used to have my own business.

Betty Spencer

All of the presenters were enthusiastic, informative as well as entertaining. Excellent course on a difficult subject.

John Sawyers

Second time for review- helped reinforce what I had learned. You guys are great. Made learning lots of fun!

Sherry Burton

I enjoyed the class very much. This class will be very helpful in my current job. I am really excited to practice my skills in my new business.

Heather Carothers

I learned a lot from the class. I wish I knew about this seven years ago when we started our own business

Cecilia Lindsey

I’ve learned far more than I ever expected and feel very confident that my sister and I can make this happen.

S. Moyers

A excellent opportunity for an individual interested in an accounting field. This course cut through the fat and gets to the meat of small business accounting. It not only covers the actual accounting/bookkeeping process but the marketing of the students new found abilities.

Corey Bethel

I recommend this course to any retiree with a background in business. It brought me up to date on the mechanism of bookkeeping and accounting. Also I now have another skill with which I can augment my retirement income and in the amount of time that I am prepare to devote to it.

Edward Stanton

I have a lot of information to review and sort out. I feel I can do this now where I didn’t feel that way two days ago.

Kim White

I had the fear that the course couldn’t teach me all that they said they could in a way that I would understand and be able to use. I have had absolutely no accounting experience. I know have the confidence that I can do this.

Ann Carlson

After working in the accounting field for 30 years, this was a wonderful review for me and to get my “mind set” back to reality. Your course has helped very much in getting me back on the right track.

Susan Mead

If you want direction and actual steps to take to grow your practice you will not be disappointed.

Roy Bartels

I came into this class with 27 years of experience in accounting. I wanted to get my own company up and going, but felt I could use some good information to get things started out right. I learned a lot of information about many types of companies. I would recommend this class to anyone who is interested.

Joann Hanson

I was thinking about Universal Accounting the other day….I took your course….as a newly divorced stay at home Mom of two very small children. I did very well in the class, but it was your marketing methods that allowed me to build a business successfully.

I have clients all over Salt Lake City who are always amazed at what I can do vs what their previous bookkeepers have done for them. I support my family solely on my own and make a very good wage doing it. I own a home, drive a nice car and have been home every afternoon at 3pm when my kids walk in from school.

So, what I wanted to say was Thank you. But in addition, I really feel a need to help pass this on to others. I’d love an opportunity to spend some of my time coaching or just speaking at the introductory seminars. I am living proof this works and it works well.

Alecia Gale

This course is a tremendores value to anyone seeking work in the active, personaly, professionaly. Iam a better person for it.

Renita Hartzell

This is the best educational experience I have ever had. I wish all schools from grade school on up used these techniques. They are very positive and you come away feeling confident that you will succeed. I have tried to learn accounting 3 times and finally the third time was the charm. If you have ever been interested in accounting but didn’t seem to get anywhere you can trust that you will succeed. If it sounds too good to be true it’s Universal Accounting Center. I am forever grateful that this opportunity crossed my path.

Brenda Harley

I recommend this class to those who are iffy on their career. If you don?t have the time, this course simply takes 4 weeks to learn a lot of information. The course is fun and effective. I now know what profession I would like to be in.

Rhonda Slowman

I’m glad I made the decision to take this course. Over the years I have had a lot of exposure to bookkeeping and some exposure to full charge accounting, but it never came together in my mind until I came and took this course. Now I feel that I can do bookkeeping and accounting with confidence.

Carolyn Thorup

I can not believe how much I have learned in so short a time. I liked the hands-on practice.

Cindy Connaughton

I learned more about managing a business in four short weeks than in many years of study and experience.

L. Moyes

It was a great opportunity for me and anyone else. It builds confidence and guides you toward a better financial and rewarding life.

Lucia VanderVelden

This was a wonderful class that has added to my knowledge and training in the bookkeeping and accounting field. The instructors are very knowledgeable in the areas of instruction. I would highly reccomend this course to anyone seeking to higher their education.

Charles H.N. Johnson, CPA

I highly recommend this course to anyone who is serious about a future in accounting. The material discussed is very comprehensive. It was presented in a way that made everything very clear.

Susan Dennet

I found the Universal Accounting course very helpful as it focused on small business accounting. Almost all of what I learned was directly applicable to starting and running my own business. Regardless of your industry, there’s no question in my mind that accounting is the number one skill that you need to succeed.
Without a solid understanding of debits and credits and financial statements, this would have been very difficult!

Jim Holland

This is a good course of accounting . I liked it because you explain it easier.

Rosa Lopez

Accounting skills are powerful skills and I can see the great value to any industry. I am sure that I will use this new skill in whatever area I work in.

Jeanne Kenniberg

I feel that it is a fantastic school and anybody who wants to learn should sign up now.

Craig Emery

I felt that this program has been very well thought out and presented. Accounting theories and applications were presented in a simple and easy way to understand. The practice sets help solidify what is learned in class. The course materials are an excellent source for reference and guidance in a step by step fashion. This course exceded my expectations and the information given is very extensive. Very good course and experience.

Dalin Hackett

I would highly recommmend the Universal Accounting Course to anyone interested in sharpening their job skills and/or starting their own business. The time and money invested in this course is just that- an investment.

Chuck Roberts

I would just like to say, I’m very thankful to have found your schooling to get me started in the career I’ve been wanting to start for a while now. You both have helped me very much to understand the basic’s of accounting and get my foot in the door with a good company. I now have the knowledge I need to get started and with experience I’ll be in great shape. Overall your prices were very inexpensive and that was the one that made my mind up to start asap.

Angel Irizarry

I wanted to say how much I enjoy the newsletter. I always find great infromation in this newsletter. Thanks for the hard work.

Theresa Chatham

This course has been the most beneficial course I have taken. I have a degree in accouning and decide to do books for a small business before I passed the CPA exam. I soon realized my training was inadequte to accomplish my goals. This course has helped my to meet my goals and I can work out of my home. I am so excited about the opportunities that are now open to me.

Laura Kennelly

Repetition is definitley the “key” in providing an effective training course. You were right on track. All the tools were solid building blocks that you can use to your advantage. Also, thank you for your continued enthusiasm throughout the course. My hopes are that this course can provide a standard of living that some people only dreatm about. Again thank you.

Terrie Haranlay

I would recommend the course.

Lora Lanham

Since ordering the Professional Bookkeeper program I have acquired 8 clients

Maria Roca

I enjoyed this experience and the knowledge I received.

Debbie Brown

Thank you! I spent 3 years in college, and didn’t learn a thing. I feel very comfortable with what I have learned and am excited to get going.

Carol Barton

When I first decided to become a bookkeeper it was a decision I made after two years of effort trying different career choices (massage therapy school, bartending academy, cardiac monitor technician courses). Then bookkeeping came to mind. I enjoy working with numbers and being at the computer. When I saw Universal Accounting’s advertisement on a web site and watched the video sent to me, I knew I wanted to have a home based business as a freelance bookkeeper. Although I am having difficulty right now grasping the concepts of accounting, I value UAC’s program because of the training and practice of setting up a business. Books from beginning to end (something the college courses will not teach me) and the valuable insight in marketing my own bookkeeping business (I peeked at module 4 of the Professional Bookkeeper Program). I just landed a job with a Jeep Tour company as a guide for a mom and pop business here in Scottsdale for a little added income while I attend school. I already have my first client when I receive my certificate! The owner of the jeep tour company is disappointed with her accountant and said she would hire me on when I graduate next year. She knows quite a few small business owners. I would have never thought about freelancing if I hadn’t come across UAC. I feel so on track with where my life is heading. Thanks!

Kay Fielding

I learned more and more each time and repetition is some I need in order to learn.

Kenneth Larsen

This class really icreased my knowledge of the business world. The time and money invested in this class were well spent.
They went beyond the espectations that I had for it. Now I feel confident knowing that I know more than most peaple.
Whether you have experience or not.
The practical sets were down to earth and were practical to the industries. Iam glad I did it.

Sara Smith

I would highly reccommend the Universal Accounting Course to anyone interested in a comprehensive, warking knowledge of bookkeeping. This is a wonderful course for individuals with an extensive accounting background. The training in this course, put 5 years of University education into a working ability of accounting.

Diane Bodily

This class was very beneficial and I would recommend it to anyone

Kathy Roe

This class has helped me in so many ways to make all the connections.

Lori Anderson

It is more than I received when I graduated with a degree in accounting. The marketing training is very helpful.

Susan Johnson

The class was really taught well. I enjoyed the discussions and the freedom to ask any question. I also like the fact it only took a few weeks to complete. I definately recommend this course to anyone.

Angela Brown

My reason for Attending Universal Accounting was to take an accounting refresher course to get back into accounting. It worked!!

Karen Jaenisch

Since ordering the Professional Bookkeeper program I have acquired 6 new clients & I have not been out to knock on doors. I now have a total of 8 clients and I am talking to 6 more clients.

Universal Accounting Center has provided a great background and given me a starting point. I now feel confident and prepared.

S.E. Butler-Gomez

I signed up for this course with the intention of learning enough about bookkeeping to better monitor what my bookkeeper was doing. I am the President of a Commercial Finance Company. After completing the course, I feel capable of doing the company books myself or the books of most companies. I would recommend this course to anyone.

Vern Sorensen

I haven’t taken any school classes for 23 years and was a little apprehensive. I’ve learned far more than I ever expected and feel very confident.

Susan Moyers

For the person who is seeking a career in the accounting/bookeeping field, Universal Accounting Center is the best opportunity available. All the information you are given there is a great deal and it is pertinent.
I have been greatly impressed by the entire experience.
I now am confident that I have the knowledge necessary to handle any accounting/bookkeeping challenge I might encounter. I can enthusiastically recommend Universal Accounting Center to everyone.

I followed the marketing plan to a tee. I’ve been in business nearly 9 months now and with 7 clients I am making enough to support my family.

Alecia Gayle

I am now working for a very prominent land developer. I manage several multi million dollar accounts and companies and am responsible for all of the financial statements and reporting of each account and company. Without the knowledge of the accounting course I received from UAC, I would have never landed this fabulous position.

Jodi Eldridge

I have been looking for a way to do bookkeeping in my home for a long time. But because I spend so much time just trying to support my family I wasn’t able to go back to school to get the training I needed. I am so glad I found Universal Accounting. The training has been excellent

I now have a way to better support my family with something I really enjoy. Thank you so much!

Cindy Anderson

UAC’s Small Business Accounting/Bookkeeping course is very comprehensive. It covered not just the bookkeeping but the practical parts of starting a bookkeeping business. I highly recommend this course to anyone who wants to be their own boss!

Greg Smith

Since I started to take this course, I saw a lot of improvement with my skills and experiences to do accounting either for somebody else or on your own. I truly highly recommend this course to anybody out there if they wanted to get a good job with the accounting and bookkeeping business. In society the majority of employment opportunity out there, accounting is high in percentage, about 35-50% of jobs is something to do with accounting. They have the best experienced instructors, highly ranked with whole skills and techniques to help with anything you might need.

John Peapealalo

I feel the information will be very useful in my job I have now and will help me to get my business started.

I can’t tell you how much I enjoyed this course. I found it very interesting and spent almost every free moment I had on this course. It was money very well spent.

Christina Jones

The things taught are well presented. It’s made learning fun.

Janet Gundersen

I had an opportunity to own my own business recently. It was something I had always envisioned. The training was intense and I learned things that I didn’t get the first time. I would definately recommend this training to anyone looking to learn the basics. It will make all the difference.

Paula Lamb

I really enjoyed this course I learned a lot.

With Universal Accounting, I learned a lot of accounting in a short time which I didn’t expect to learn. I would recommend this course to my friends who are interested in bookkeeping and accounting.

Bradford McRae

Thank You for helping me take the steps to improve myself. What a great opportunity.

I want to take this opportunity to thank you for your Universal Accounting Course. It covered such a broad spectrum of accounting/bookkeeping information and I honestly feel that the way you teach the material from start to finish; is a great contribution to someone with or without an accounting backgroung

Diane Bodily

Dear Scott, Ken and Universal Team,

It has now been only two years since I invested in the Universal Accounting Program. I purchased the whole system including Bookkeeping, Tax, QuickBooks and Universal Practice Builder. In addition I also purchased the coaching.

At that point I had just opened Expert Tax Solutions, Inc and focused on tax accounting, bookkeeping and QuickBooks. In three short tax seasons’ I have built up to over 250 new clients from ground zero. It is a dream comes true. In addition to this I now have six new bookkeeping clients and numerous consulting jobs with Quick Books clients.

I just have to let you know that I don’t think I would have had the guts to pursue this dream if it were not for your program. The training is wonderful, but the coaching is necessary as well. The confidence that I received from the knowledge that if I really encounter something that is beyond me, there was a team to coach me through it was the key to my success. You and Ken were especially beneficial in this coaching.

My tax practice is now approaching $50,000 in revenue in the third tax season. You were right! The demand is unbelievable for good, conscientious tax professionals, this I know first-hand! Thanks again for being such an important part of my business success! I am glad I invested – it has really paid off!

Sincerely,

Lori Rademacher, President

Lori Rademacher

I see this a something that is going to completely change my life. Everything about the course is excellent.

Mike Petragallo

I learned a great deal and you preseted the material in a great way that was easy to understand and retain.

Kathy Oldus

I learned more about managing a business in four short weeks than in many years of study and experience in college.

L. Moyes

The information I received and help was worth every penny of the tuition.

Shelby Nordman

I am in the process of marketing my business at the current time. I am excited to put what I have learned into practice. Thank you once again for the skills you have helped me develop.

Charles Williams

The presentation was informative and challenging. Yet, the help given was free from intimidation- always building confidence in accounting and my ability.

Merrill Lotthouse

Very professional, friendly, and courteous. Shows the importance of service, service, service.

Roy McGarrell

I knew nothing of accounting before I took this class and now I feel I have a good working knowledge of bookkeeping and starting a business.

S. David

Having come from a very limited accounting background, I was able to quickly pick up the material and retain it. The course is comprehensive, compact and worth the time and effort.

Jeff Patterson

This class far exceeded my expectations.

C. Levit

To someone like me who knew nothing of accounting, this course was wonderful. I have recently started up my own business and this was just the help I needed. I now feel more confident in doing my own bookkeeping.

Michael Larsen

I’ve picked up 7 cliets since I ordered the course.

Karen Schoch

I am extremely grateful for the Universal Accounting course. Not only was it informative and fun, but it gave me a sense of self worth that I haven’t felt for a long time. I would highly recommend this class. I’m positive that you will have a good experience.

Laurie Adams

The class was excellent. Although I have a B.S. in accounting, MBA and 9 years expereince in corporate accounting, I found the class interesting and very informative. Which universities deal primarily with accounting theory, this class concentrates on the practical. The nuts and bolts apporach is far more important than theory when one gets out into the “real world.”

David Sellers

Greatly enjoyed this course. While I am a college graduate with an accounting degree, I enjoyed doing the course work and being exposed to the different business practice sets. I can honestly refer people to this course at any time.

Jerry Schultz

I really enjoyed this class. I thought it was a lot easier to learn at Universal Accounting Center than at a college or university.

Leslie Mulder

I thought this course would be good- but it was much better than I expected.

Robyn Simper

We have found that the demand for accountants at all levels has significantly exceeded the supply. It is our belief that this trend will continue. The objective of The Accounting and Bookkeeping Center, in contrast to the goal of our department, is to prepare entry-level accounting clerks and paraprofessionals. The Basic Accounting and Bookkeeping course provides individuals with the necessary skills to qualify for entry-level positions as accounting paraprofessionals.

Lamont Steedle, CPA

Incredible Course! It was extremely informative and fun at the same time. No other college class I toon on accounting was so all inclusive and easy to learn. (and in only 4 weeks) A great class! Thank you for everything.

Kate Anderson

I was thinking about Universal Accounting the other day…. I took your course in 2001 as a newly divorced stay at home Mom of two
very small children. I did very well in the class, but it was your marketing methods that allowed me to build a business successfully.
For the past 12 years, I have been working as Professional Bookkeeper. I have clients all over Salt Lake City who are always amazed at what I can do vs what their previous bookeepers have done for them. I support my family solely on my own and make a very good wage doing it. I own a home, drive a nice car and have been home every afternoon at 3pm when my kids walk in from school.

So, what I wanted to say was Thank you. But in addition, I really feel a need to help pass this on to others. I’d love an opportunity
to spend some of my time coaching or just speaking at the introductory seminars. I am living proof this works and it works well.
Please feel free to contact me if you’d like to hear more about my journey and how Universal was a big part of making a good one!

Alecia Gale

This is an excellent course, I have recommended it to several other people as a good means to an end. There is lots of good information and guidance for your own business, starting a bookkeeping business or working for someone else.

Pat Treadway

I was very pleased with the program and layout of the course.

Ruth Velez

I felt like I was in an actual classroom but with the advantages of being able to pause and go back if I had questions. I have learned a lot from this course and I would recommend it to anyone.

Carol Harris

I graduated in accounting from the University and have learned and worked with things here that are not taught at the university. The course was very worthwile

Craig Goodwar

I found the accounting course taught by Universal Accounting Center to be very helpful. It is a complete course in bookkeeping and accounting for small businesses. The instructors are knowledgeable and able to teach effectively in a short period of time. They are also willing to provide additional help when needed. I recommend this course for anyone interested in starting an accounting business or working as an accountant/bookkeeper.

Walt Whipple

I have a finance degree and am a managerial accountant. I not only enjoyed the presentation and material covered in class, but many things came together for the first time. Accounting makes more sense on a macro and micro level. I now feel confident that I can and will attract and service small businesses.

Kaleb Mullin

The course was very instructive and very well detailed. Many thanks to the instructors for all their help upon my completion of the course. Now it’s time for me to get some clients!

Timolin Colbert

This course taught me everything I needed to know to start my own bookkeeping business.

Jacqueline D’ercole

I have never been so impressed with a course as I have been with this one. Though intense, the organization and presentations were very well done. It was easy to understand and the practice sets were extremely helpful. Hands on experience is always the best way to go. It has been a pleasurable and a very rewarding four weeks. I have spoken to many about taking this course. I hope they do it.

Jacquie Nielson

This was an excellent course.

R. Chen

This course was an excellent course for seeing the whole accounting picture rather than bits and pieces here and there. Very well put together. Great instruction on starting a business!

Lena Sprague

My accounting classes in school came no where near explaining the concepts this well.

Katie Benioni

I had a general business background but I didn’t specifically know how to do bookkeeping and I realized if I was going to be able to sell my services to small business owners I would have to be both confident that I could discuss their needs and offer solutions and competent enough to follow through on my promises. I enrolled in the courses last November and finished in about a month. I officially launched my business at the beginning of the year. I was able to get my first client within a week of starting- they are still with me, by the way- I have not had a single client leave- and since then I am now up to 16 monthly clients with several more starting soon and I have also done quite a bit of one off project work each month. I am now at the point where I have had to turn down some work and I am about to sign a lease for a small office and start looking for my first employee so I can continue to go out and pull in new clients and have someone to take over a portion of the work. I can definitely say that taking these courses was what enabled me to have the ability to go out and make this happen.

Matt Remuzzi

Even with15 years of accounting background, I found myself learning something new nearly everyday.

B. Varechok

Even though I felt like I was allready profficient in bookkeeping I learned a ton from the course.
I am excited about starting my own business. I now feel more confident that I can do it. The course was well worth the cost. I loved the videos.
Taking the curse has given me an edge confidence that I would not have had.

Jacquire Pearce-Wood

This course was fulfulling and enjoyable.

T. Oldham

This course was excellent! I learned more in the four weeks than I learned in five years of college. It is a “need to know” course. I felt I had the knowledge to start my own business, now I have the confidence.

LeeAnn Mora

The practice sets are great for examples.

Jon Schofield

I really enjoyed this class. I thought I knew a lot but found that I needed to know so much more. I wish I had known the construction information 2 years ago when we built our home. We could have saved a lot of money.

Kathie Taylor

I believe that UAC did a very good job of teaching the bookkeeping and accounting.

Dennis Chamber

I highly recommend Universal Accounting. The accounting classes are so complete and the instructors so knowledgeable. I have been doing bookkeeping functions for several years now, but I have learned so much with all of the hands-on exercises.

Phyllis Calton

The knowledge I received has enabled me to serve my present clients better. Thank you.

Ibhate (Regina) Imoisili

I’ve taken Accounting courses before, but I cannot believe you cover so much information in such a short time. This was a terrific deal for the price.

Sally Pierce

I would recommend this course to anyone. A “AAA” rating.

C.H.N. Johnson, CPA

This class has been great.Taught me in a few weeks things know or understand about accounting even after years of working in the business. Iam now more confident and knowledgable. Best four week I have invested in myself.

Cheryl Tarbet

I learned a lot and feel better about myself because of it.

J. Goold

The course was very well put together. Allen made the presentations very interesting with his energetic attitude toward accounting.

Tammy Opfar

I’m impressed. This is exactly what I had hoped it would be. I’m glad I took this class rather than waste a lot of money on college tuition.

Stuart Holley

I am a Senior student majoring in Accounting. Everything I learned in this month is better than and more than the three years at the University. Universal’s Accounting course was very helful to me in understanding Accounting. I learned a lot of things that I never learned in school. It is a hands on experience.

Shane Mcwary

I really appreciate UAC. It has given me all of the professional accounting knowledge I own. This company has been invaluable to me and I have a feeling that it will continue to be.

Marc Adams

This school breaks down the bookkeeping system into easy ways to learn. The system is so complete and covers ALL accounting procedures. The school is here to help even after you leave. What a wonderful support system. They even try to make it fun. I only wish all schools could be this much fun.

Harlene Landfair

I would recommend taking this course to anyone.

I learned about different businesses and methods that I’d not been previously exposed to, and was taught marketing and development concepts which alone made the course worthwhile.

K. Nebeker, CPA

This course has given me the ability and knowledge of something I was always hoping to be able to do. I can now open my own business with confidence and pride.

Marlin McCloud

This course greatly exceeded my expectations and I would recommend it to anyone.

Blair Jensen

Universal Accounting is a great tool in the accounting world. I came into this class with some accounting experience, but got a lot of information and new techniques.
-Stephanie Kobel – SLC, Utah

Stephanie Kobel

This is a must for anyone thinking of getting a degree in accounting at a University. I feel that certain principles were explained in a simple way and easy to understand that would have saved me a lot of time, stress, and confusion, had I taken this course previously to taking any courses at the University

Jeff Lieber

I was happy with the class. I feel like I learned a lot and it was a good investment in my future.

Billy Stracher

I truly enjoyed the course and it was a great refresher for me. I have my associates in accounting, but I have been out of the field for 11 years to raise my children. Now I am ready to return and I feel confident to start my own business.

Lori Whelan

I really liked the classes and learned a lot. This will help me in my future business and in life in general.

Kwin Clark

I really enjoyed this class. It helped me in more areas than just accounting.
I feel like I can really do something that will make a difference in my life.
Thank you for all you help.

Paula Holmes

Your class was excellent

Terralea Neebling

I chose UAC because I was in need of a tool to tie together all of the knowledge I’ve gained working as an accounting clerk for the past 10 years. The course was an excellent way for me to learn the entire process of accounting for a business, from start- through year end close. Whether I choose to start my own accounting service or work for someone else, the knowledge. I’ve gained is invaluable.

Terri Rawdin

I have been in the automotive accounting field for 40 years and he was right on. My purpose in taking this course was to learn about other small businesses and I’m confident in my ability to tackle any of them. Thank you so much.

The Small Business Accounting course far exceeded my expectations. I came away with a comphrehensive understanding of and the ability to embark on a new career. With the knowledge gained in this class I feel confident that my services will be in demand.

JoAnn Stewart

The accounting course offered by Universal Accounting is a very well taught, informative and enjoyable class. All instructors are very knowledgeable and excellent teachers. I would highly recommend this course to anyone interested in bookkeeping and accounting services.

Kimberly Baugh

It was exciting to know I could learn so much in a short amount of time. In May of this year a car dealership hired me to work on accounts payable. They were obviously impressed with my skills. I now work on accounts payable, receivable, cost and sale of car deals, and they are starting me on payroll this week.

Becky Luck

This course has surpassed my expectations. The high level of the course has given me the confidence I needed to go forth and start my own bookkeeping business. I know it was a wise investment for my future and my children’s future.

Sandra Moore

I thought the course was presented extremely well. I was not expecting the first 2 weeks to be so basic, but it was a good review. The classes were fun and interesting. Definitely improved my confidence.

Vicki Anwiler

The Universal Accounting Course gave me the confidence to start my own business. This was something I had always wanted to do but didn’t have the courage to do so.

Gary Burchett

I have learned more in the last four weeks in accounting than I ever did in my college accounting classes.

Kim Labrum

I came to the class to help with a small business which I own. I found the classes to be fun and very informative. I feel that I’ve gained the information I was looking for to help me more effectively manage business finances and grow my business. Thanks for all your help!

Joseph Lindsay

We placed an ad in the Daily Herald under the category of “Loan and Finace” and ran it for two weeks. We received a number of phone calls. There were several that we were able to do laon packages for. It is looking as if the loan package part of the business may develop into something full time for one of us. We certainly appreciate all the work, time and assistance you have given us to get our business started.

Geroge Fannin

Great job. I enjoyed the DVD set and information. Thank You.

Joyce Prentice

This class has been wonderful in helping me put together the whole picture. It has helped me gain a better perspective of how everything comes together.

After 4 years of college classes this has really helped me to refresh my memory as well as find a more conceptual understanding.

Shelly Matthews

I would definately recommend Universal’s Accounting course if you want to learn in depth methods and prcedures of accounting and bookkeeping. I learned more paractical experience in accounting and setting up a business with this course than I did from my 4 yar degree in Buisness Management.

Jennifer Soutas

The course provided excellant coverage.

Dionne Jaddei

This has been a great learning experience.

Aaron Icardi

Since ordering the Professional Bookkeeper program I now have my own accounting/bookkeeping & tax business and I also do Quickbooks consulting and point-of-sale.

Shelley White

I appreciate your excellent teaching skills as I am able to recall so much information from the accounting course. Thank you for all you have contributed to my education and life.

Elizabeth Scott

This course was excellent! I also feel more confident now than I did at the beginning of the course. It got me pumped up to start my business. Allen is also an excellent teacher.

Trisha Davis

The accounting department of these organizations had a steady need for bookkeepers and accounting clerks to complete the regular accounting tasks. However, finding qualified employees was a challenge because there was always a shortage of individuals with the necessary accounting knowledge. Our firm is constantly seeking bookkeepers to assist our clients in maintaining their accounting records. Unfortunately this demand must often to unfilled, as we have had difficulty attracting qualified people. In fact, it often becomes necessary to reassign higher-level professionals (CPA and CPA candidates) from their other responsibilities to complete these basic accounting tasks due to the shortage of qualified paraprofessionals. Based on my professional accounting experience, I believe that the Basic Accounting and Bookkeeping course offered by UAC-The Accounting and Bookkeeping Center will provide students with the necessary skills to enter the above jobs. Many employment opportunities should be available for those who successfully complete this course.

Theresa Smith

I really enjoyed the bookkeeping course. I have had accounting classes and worked in the field most of my career. I have worked in a small business for the past 5 years doing their books before being laid off recently. I took the course because I wanted to know what I didn’t know about bookkeeping for small businesses.

I learned a lot.

Thanks

Lisa Chestnut

Lisa Chestnut

This course was an excellent hands on program which I felt covered nearly every aspect of accounting. When you finish it, you feel confident you can do the work.

Linda Chatelain

I would like to say that I have been looking for something like this for a very long time. I have had a need to have two careers to meet my needs for the past ten years. When I came to the seminar to introduce the class I was a bit apprehensive. By the end of the seminar it was like an opening in my dead end tunnel opened up and I could see the light.

Gayle Fisher

I can honestly say that I learned more in two or three days than I ever did in a quarter of accounting in college. And be-cause of their unique method of teaching, I was able to retain a great deal as well.
This school is well worth the time and effort.

Michael Hadlock

The instructors presented the course materials in a way that I can understand in a four week period. I’ve started as an accounting major at Ricks College and I’m glad I’ve finished the accounting course at Universal Accounting Center.

Sing Morgan

This course covers a lot of fields of accounting and bookkeeping. The knowledge gained will be very adequate for anyone who did not know anything about accounting before and who wants to work in accounting and bookkeeping.

Archie Myers

Today my husband and I have started up a new business. I feel like my confidence has increased 100% just knowing how to make the financial end of everything work, balance, and most of all, just know the language. I believe this will make all the difference in the world in the success of our business. Thank you guys.

Laurel Herbert

Thank you. I really enjoyed the course. It was very educational and I learned a lot.

Scott Hipsher

You have made this whole procen a great learning experience. I came in with very little back ground in bookkeeping and now I feel I can confidently do a career change and feel good about it.

Joann Fresques

I was very impressed with the work program.
Thank you so much. I enjoyed it.

Michelle Kennedy

I extend my deepest thank you to all of you. This course gave me a lot of knowledge about the subject. I would recommend this course to all my friends.

Tatyana Kosheoaya

I was impressed by the apparent time and energy that has gone into polishing this program. With a basic clerical knowledge, your program gave me an intensive understanding of financial operation.

I found you procedures and class manuals to be professionally done. The lectures imparted experience and knowledge that helped to fine tune the course subjects. Of particular interest to me was the focuas on ethics, delivered with honesty and realism.

I am grateful for the opportunity I had to attend, and feel confident of the procedures and support offered by your organization.

Susan Best

I enjoyed class very much and you have made a desie to have my ower business a possibility. Thank you.

Susan Pidwell

Our experience has shown that, during each of the past ten years, the demand for accounts receivable, payable and payroll clerks, bookkeepers, accounting assistants and other accounting paraprofessionals has either remained steady or has increased. The wages that employers are willing to pay for these positions have also increased steadily during this period. We have concluded that it adequately prepares individuals for the above jobs. The advanced courses proposed by UAC-The Accounting and Bookkeeping Center will add to the accounting and bookkeeping capabilities of job seekers. We believe that UAC-The Accounting and Bookkeeping Center will effectively prepare job seekers for entry-level accounting and bookkeeping positions, and that it’s program will be of significant benefit to the aspiring employees, employers, and economy of the Baltimore region.

Pauline Wheeler

I learned more in these 4 weeks than I did taking classes in college. I always thought I knew accounting quite well; however, now I know I do.

Cathy Lloyd

An excellent course!

Maria Cyetkovic

I can hardly believe I relearned in four weeks what I learned about the first 2 years in college. Even though I have my bachelors in Accounting, I feel much more confident in accounting then when I graduated from UAC. Thanks.

Sheree Nash

I can’t imagine not knowing what I’ve learned in this course.

Kathy Rasmussen

I thoroughly enjoyed my time in class. I learned a lot and now I actually dare to start my own business. Thank you very much.

Holly Ostrup

This was exactly what I was looking for. From the very first itme I came accross your website, I knew this is what I wanted to do, but I got distracted with every day life. However, I am committed to learning and mastering this new skill. I regret not taking the time to see it earlier.

Jorge Bracamonte

I learned more about the basic accounting processes from this course than the 18 credit hours of accounting work in college. I feel very comfortable that I can handle most any small business accounting needs.

Cal Michels

The Universal Accounting Program gave me the confidence I needed to pursue a job as an Asst. Controller, that most people would say I was not qualified for. Because of the changes to the real estate market this job was short lived but I have since become employed as a Full Charge Bookkeeper at a retail home and garden store. Thank you Universal Accounting Center for giving me the confidence I lacked and the belief in my abilities to know what I am worth.

Nancy Martinez

Just wanted to drop a quick note about my thoughts on Universal Accounting’s course and what it has done for me.

About four years ago my wife purchased the Universal Accounting program and never finished it. She thought it would be something I would like and encouraged me to complete the course in her place, and I did just that.

After completing the course, I took on a few clients and kept their books as a part time income, for about a year. Then, last year I was laid off from my position at a large multi-national IT Company.

Thanks to the training provided by Universal Accounting and the severance package from my employer, my departure came without the stress normally associated with a layoff, I happily left my job with a smile and a plan. I’d decided right there, that I would take my bookkeeping service fulltime.

Within one year I was able to turn my part time bookkeeping service into a fulltime business which currently employs three others besides me (two part-time and one full-time employee). My current revenue is over $12000.00/month with new clients coming on board at a rate of 3-4/per month with an average billing of $300.00/month.

I like offer my thanks, to Allen Bostrom and Universal Accounting for providing the vehicle to success, through bookkeeping; without it, my dream of a business of my own would not have become a reality.

Stephan Garland

In my life, I have many weaknesses. My greatest is money management. In going through this class, I have turned that weakness into strength. This class has truly changed my life for the better. I know I will be very successful in going out and obtaining business

Raymond Lamlatt

Universal Accounting center is good (Great) for everyone who wants to learns more about accounting.

Lisa McGalliard

I can honestly say that the hands-on training from Universal Accounting Center was far more helpful that that of my degree program. The training I received in your class was superb, exactly what I needed for the type of accounting business I was trying to start. I have been so pleased wtih the training I received from you, that my two part-time employees are currently taking your course.

S. Ivans

Without your training program I would never have considered this position, I now have the confidence and the skills to be an effective member of the corporate level management group.

Things are going great!  Not sure if I let you know, but I was able to quit my job last November (has it been that long since we touched base?  not sure….)  Anyway, my tax practice is in full swing and my referral business is growing rapidly!  It really is true, after you get a few clients, the referrals start popping up, and I am at the point now where my basic living and business expenses are covered – YEAH!!!  And business is growing, I have taken on 3 new ongoing bookkeeping clients in the past 2 weeks, with one more probable coming up.  And one or two tax clients per week also, so I am a busy girl!
I have completed the training on the tax program, quickbooks and most of the bookkeeping (I am a degreed accountant, so most of that is review, but very helpful and explained in a way they NEVER do in college!); but have not yet taken the certification tests (will have to wait until after tax season!)
 
I am very excited about the growth of my business and very thankful to UAC for the help and support I get when I need it.  And, I haven’t even cracked open the UPB yet – so I am sure I will be back to making what I was in the corporate world (and then some!) soon :-)  Just one question on that – the UPB program, I purchased it last year at the UAC conference in Sept, but have not utilized the support, will that automatically expire in Sept this year, or 1 year after I start using it?  Just curious.
 
Thanks for touching base, I appreciate the ongoing support!
 
Sincerely,

I have an extensive background in business and otherwise. I would like to say that this has been one of the best experiences that I have encountered. I have taken many accounting and cost accounting classes.

Sabina Zunguze

Class was well taught. It was a good complement to my degree. I look forward to using the additional training to assist clients

Ronald Haller

I thoroughly enjoyed this course. I learned more than I thought was possible. I took this course because I wanted to know how to go about getting started in business. I was taught that, and then some.

Aleta Wood

What I received in a short period was not only a refresher of accounting principles and procedures but an expanded knowledge of how to apply those principles to different types of business set-ups. I have never regretted the training. It has definitely been a help in applying my skills in auditing to cost accounting. I would highly recommend your course to any person that wants a career in accounting.

Charles Gooch

I was very impressed with the course and it’s gotten better and better. I’ve especially appreciated the confidence builing tips and practical means of implementing this new found knowledge.

Michael Cook

Last week I sent out my first 10 letters to local businesses and one called me back. I had a meeting with them today, they are a fine-dining resturant and I am going to get them into shape financially. I feel so great about this, so if you can tell Allen thank you for me. I have gotten more out of the bookkeeping program than I ever did at college.

Gia Magliocco

If anyone out there is not sure what accounting really is…you will after taking this course. I feel I have learned so many things that I hadn’t before. The knowledge I have accumulated is going to be a great asset to my business or any other business I will work with. I have taken a couple of Tech courses and this is by far the best course I have taken. I feel comfortable with a lot more accounting problems now than before. Thanks!!

Vetricia Jones

Having once owned and operated my own business, I realize how much more successful I would have been if I knew then, what I know now. Thanks so much!

Alicia Larsen

I just wanted to write a small note of thanks to you for giving me the courage to try this. I enjoyed your classes and learned so much from it. I am in the process of working on getting clients. Thank you for all you have done. I will keep you posted on what transpires.

Janet Trelease

The course is great. It is a win-win situation. I would recommend this class to anyone.

Marian McGuire

Universal Accounting appealed to me becuase it offered job skills that will allow me to spend quality time with the most important people, “my family”
universal Accounting Systems is the best school in the market for helping a person develop their own home-based accounting service. It has really changed my life and my outlook for the future.

Sheila Thomas

I would definitely recommend Universal Accounting to anyone wanting to start his or her own bookkeeping business. The classes are intense and informative. You really learn the necessities of bookkeeping. With the knowledge you gain from the classes you are prepared to start your own business. I had my first client on the first day of class. Before I was done with the four week course I have four clients. Just have the guts to follow the advice that Universal Accounting gives on marketing and you too will be able to build your own bookkeeping service.

Judy Talbot

I felt this course was a very informative and comprehensive program. I think I personally have really gained a lot mentally and have taken a great step toward being financially independent.

Shirley Olsen

The course has been a very important boost to my self esteem and job qualifications. I appreciate the quickness of the course and the helpfulness of the instructors.

Janine Greenhalgh

This letter is written as a declaration of the advantages I gained by taking your small business accounting class. Even though I have 15 years of accounting experience along with a bachelor’s degree and master’s degree in business, this course gave a detailed analysis of what the small business owner faces. I gained better insight and a deeper understanding of the “Big Picture” and I am now able to market services to small business owners with a confidence I previously did not possess. I would not only recommend your class to someone who never took an accounting course in their life, I would highly recommend it to a college graduate. This course was worth the cost and I will reap the benefits from it for years to come.

Roy Percy

This course far exceeded my expectations and helped fill in gaps in my accounting education.
This course has helped clarify the accounting process and gave me the complete picture whereas the college courses each take a normal area and expand on it.

Clark Ceauford

I have always had an interest in accounting. I took a few accounting classes in High School, but never really followed through with it. When I learned about UAC I was extremely excited and couldn’t wait to get started. I will never regret taking this course, only that I didn’t do it sooner. Before I finished the course, I already had my first client.

Rachel Philips

This class was like a power-packed energy bar…It didn’t last long but it was full of great stuff.

Orion Stonebraker.

I really enjoyed the class

Cindie Butterfield

This was a great program. Although I was not actually in the classroom with Allen, I still felt that teacher/student relationship. Thank you!

Angela King

I enrolled in this coure with no bookkeeping or accounting experience and very little knowledge. I now feel ready to start my own bookkeeping/accounting service. I would reccomend this course to people I know that are thinking about opening their own bookkeeping service.

Rhonda Geiss

If you’re short of time and need training in keeping your financial records, I highly recommend this course. If your looking for a school in accounting where you can start your own business in small business accounting, Universal’s Accounting Center is the right place. They’ll give you all the training you’ll need plus be there for added support should you have any questions.

Sandy Ottesen

This is a great course. At first I was skeptical about taking the course because I have a degree in accounting already. After taking this course, I would suggest to anybody wanting to get in the accounting field to take this instead of over spending a lot of time and money in a two or four year program.

Michael Johnson

I knew nothing of accounting before I took the class and now I feel I have a good working knowledge of Bookkeeping and starting a business.

Shanna

The help that Universal Accounting Institute has provided me, in my opinion gave me the confidence and knowledge to start my own business and help me in matters beyond that of any other school, College could or would provide, to help an individual in technical matters such as helping me understand the way a particular business is operating and to help that business/myself understand the correct accounting procedures to follow has meant a lot to me and my clients.
Again, thanks to the staff at Universal Accounting Institute for the help they have provided and continue to provide in attaining my goals.

Daniel Vilart

I came into this class not knowing the first thing about accounting. After 4 weeks I have come away with a much better understanding of accounting principles. I feel much better being able to understand the “Behind the Scenes” work of a business. I recommend this course to anyone wanting to learn accounting. I have never even balanced a checkbook before now. My husband is thrilled!!!

Jennifer Waite

The salary I was offered was $8,000 more per year than the previous job. And, I believe that my self-employment experience and Universal training were huge contributors to this job offer.

C. Lepore

We would like to thank you for the opportunities you uncovered for us through your excellent accounting course.

S. & C. Scharp & S. Young

What I have learned at Universal Accounting Center was a very complete package of information. I wanted to start an accounting business in my own home but did not know how. Now I do. I am anxious to get started now.

J. Corely

The course was very well presented in an easy to understand way. The support after completron of the course is also very helpful and appreciated. The hands on experience in full charge bookkeeping for various business was tremendous.

Judy Wallace

Although they had 30 years of combined accounting experience between them, Elizabeth and Roxee found themselves out of work a couple years ago. It seemed logical to consider launching their own bookkeeping business together, so when they saw an advertisement for Universal’s FREE Start Today Seminar, Roxee felt the timing was perfect!

Elizabeth was initially skeptical about attending, but she agreed to go as long they didn’t purchase anything. They enjoyed the seminar and gathered valuable information there. And yes, they heard about how Universal’s Professional Bookkeeper Program could provide them with the necessary skills and marketing expertise to launch a successful practice. And regardless of Roxee and Elizabeth’s professional experience, they had received no formal training and knew doing so would prove helpful in starting a bookkeeping service of their own.

After some coaxing from Roxee, Elizabeth eventually agreed that the Professional Bookkeeper Program would help them get a “jump start” on their dream. She’s never regretted that decision. Elizabeth and Roxee completed the training and successfully launched B.I.B. Consulting, LLC where they offer bookkeeping, tax and QuickBooks services.

Roxee says, “The Professional Bookkeeper training is helpful, but the marketing information is invaluable. We used the information and the proven marketing strategies for almost a year and gained a respectable number of monthly clients.” But after time, they felt they needed more marketing strategies to further boost their business.

About this time Universal called to ask if they wanted to participate in the Master Coaching Program which pairs students with seasoned professionals who help them implement proven marketing strategies designed to get a business up and running in three to six months. Roxee explains, “We listened to the ‘pitch’ and even before we decided to go for it we were presented with some useful ideas that we still use effectively today.”

After 12 weeks of Master Coaching by seasoned mentor Scott McKinley, Elizabeth and Roxee have become the sales and marketing experts of their own company with a solid marketing plan for the next six months.

Roxee encourages, “We would recommend the Professional Bookkeeper Program, the Universal Practice Builder Program and most of all the Master Coaching Program to anyone – from new starters to long-time bookkeepers. The information and confidence you gain is worth the price of admission.”

Roxee and Elizabeth

I have really enjoyed taking this class, mainly because it is geared towards starting up our own bookkeeping business and it has given me the confidence and assurance necessary to get my own accounting business started.

Mary Schafer

I enjoy this class. The instruction helped me to realize we were on the right track with our business.

Debie Fishnick

I have been involved in financial service for 20 years and have attended seminars all over the country. The quality of this class has been head and shoulders above any class that I have ever taken. I highly recommentd this class to anyone who wants to learn accounting the right way.
