Color Accounting™ Certification

Color Accounting™ Certification
Experience the new way to learn accounting.  This hands-on visual process to see bookkeeping in action insures you will understand and remember the way transactions move within business as they follow the accounting process.  With traditional T-accounts, one must have a very good handle on lefts and rights for debits and credits. You can left a left, right a right, left a right, and right a left. Directions make poor substitutes for quantifications. The way the coded-colors are used in Color Accounting removes this confusion. ‘Same color’ means the account increases, and ‘different color’ is code for decrease. As the student is not distracted by the confusion often associated with learning debits and credits, they can more quickly make sense of the key learning areas of Structure and Language.
