Please note that this course will take place on April 15 & 16 from 9:30am - 1:00pm and will be delivered via Zoom.  Participants will require a stable internet connection with access to audio tools (headset or speakers & microphone).


Many business people do not understand accounting, its processes and its methodologies This course, designed specifically for non-accounting personnel, guides participants through basic and elementary accounting procedures used to produce financial reports. Those who attend this course will learn and understand how the financial statements are developed and the controls and checks used to
assure reliability in those financial statements.
This 2- ½-day instructor-led live webinar, Gold Seal approved course, specifically focuses on what accountants do, how they do it and why they do what they do. This is not a sit and listen event. It is an interactive course with hands-on exercises that walk participants through each step of the financial process. Practical examples and exercises demonstrate the sources, uses, preparation and analyses of
financial reports. They take home the comprehensive course manual filled with accounting methodologies and processes needed for a thorough understanding of financial reports.
Accounting is a language unto itself and, thankfully, non-financial personnel, and other employees with financial responsibility, can learn to be conversant with the key terminology – this course gives them a basic knowledge and understanding of the financial terminology.
