Professional Bookkeeping: CP
The Professional Bookkeeping Certificate of Proficiency is designed to help students prepare for national tests administered by the American Institute of Professional Bookkeepers (AIPB). Part of AIPB’s mission is to certify bookkeepers who meet national standards and help them receive recognition as bookkeepers and accounting professionals. Students who complete the certificate will be prepared to help a small business with business accounting, tax filing, general financial management and budget tracking.
The certificate of proficiency offers accelerated entrance to the job market and a short-term credential which students can build on to access more advanced jobs and higher wages. The certification will be especially important for businesses in regions of the state with a diverse tourism, travel and recreation industry.
The Certificate of Proficiency will provide an independent, industry-recognized certification as well as a stackable credential toward a one-year Certificate of Completion in Professional Bookkeeping. Credits earned in the certificate program(s) will meet some requirements for two existing AAS degrees: IT Support & Web Development, General Technology (General Business emphasis).
