The problem with QuickBooks training is that people listen to how to do a task in a classroom and then go home and forget what to do when they sit down at their keyboard. This workshop is based on the premise that all learning is hands on. So this is an informal, introductory, hands on session on QB basics using your own company and sample companies. Bring in your laptop – QB Desktop version required, either Mac or Windows. We will set up a chart of accounts and subaccounts, classes, items, customer and vendor lists, make deposits and problem solve. Since this is hands on, space is limited, pre-registration required.
