The QuickBooks Online QuickStart course will introduce the basics of using Quickbooks Online. It will present the day to day functions for an administrator to work with customer, vendor, employee and banking transactions for a business using the Intuit Quickbooks Online cloud application. This level 1 course will have you create a new company, add customers and vendors, work with your bills and invoicing your customers, entering transactions and working with your bank accounts and transactions.

The QuickBooks Online Advanced course teaches the advanced features and functionality of Intuit's cloud-based software application. Specifically, you will learn more about inventory, purchase orders, the accounting cycle, and payroll. In addition, we review customizing, fine-tuning, and other extended capabilities of QuickBooks Online.

A printed training guide is included with the course.

We recommend that individuals taking this class have a basic proficiency in the Windows operating system and browsing online, along with a basic understanding of accounting practices. For individuals with limited or no accounting background, we recommend taking our On-Demand (self-study) course:
