If Universal Accounting Center offers an Advanced Quickbooks Specialist program in the future, then please let me know immediately. I really learned a lot from the QuickBooks Specials Program even after obtaining Intuit’s QuickBooks Desktop and QuickBooks Enterprise Certifications. I am certified in QBO, but I think it lacks many features, eg. Job Costing, Sales Orders, Progress Invoicing, Advanced Inventory capability, & etc. QBO reminds me of the accounting software I used in the late 80’s and early 90’s. Your QuickBooks Specialist Program is superior and more comprehensive than Intuit’s standard QuickBooks Desktop Certification. I have taken and passed both with 90% or higher score.- Ray Mayer
Relevant, Real-World Training
As a student in this course, you’ll learn how to set up a company’s accounting books and build its accounting system from scratch, just like you would in real life. All other “how-to” QuickBooks courses begin with an existing company and its accounting data and use that data to teach you the program. In the Professional Bookkeeper’s Guide to QuickBooks, you create several company accounts and put in their accounting data from scratch. You then work with this data so you get the complete picture of real-world QuickBooks use.
The Professional Bookkeeper’s Guide to QuickBooks program will become the most valuable resource in your reference library. Whenever you have a question about a QuickBooks function, simply log into the course, and it will lead you to the answer, while teaching you tricks and techniques that will make you more proficient in using the program.

“I work from home 80% of the time and make my own schedule, something I’ve always treasured. A few years ago I recommended the courses to my son, Brian, who passed both the Bookkeeper and QuickBooks courses and is now the lead accountant for a construction company. Last June, both my niece and daughter-in-law signed up and are currently working on the QuickBooks course. They both plan to work from home while raising their children.” – Universal Accounting Center Graduate
