The Kilgore College Small Business Development Center (SBDC) will be offering two hands-on QuickBooks courses this fall in Longview.
Level 1 will be Monday through Thursday, Oct. 6-9, and Level 2 will be Monday through Thursday, Nov. 3-6, in Room 105 of KC-Longview’s Hendrix Building from 6 to 9 p.m.
A certificate of completion will be presented to each student completing the courses and each student will receive KC continuing education units (CEU) credit for each course successfully completed.
Attendees will be seated at individual computer terminals as QuickBooks is examined as an example of computerized bookkeeping systems. Students taking these courses will first explore the basic principles of setting-up and using computerized record keeping programs with an emphasis on the needs of small business owners/managers.
“As American business becomes more competitive, it is imperative that even small businesses learn how to become more efficient utilizing technology. It is now possible for even the smallest business to have their daily financial position at their fingertips,” said Brad Bunt, director of the KC SBDC.
“The ability to track inventory and project job costs is essential in running a small business. These courses are designed to give the small business owner the same tools as larger companies at a fraction of the cost.”
The instructor will be Jason Cooner of Cooner and Cooner, P.C.
Tuition for each course is $179 which includes QuickBooks handouts and all course material.
Seating is limited and early registration is recommended.
