National Bookkeeping Certification and the Norwalk Community College Certification Program

About this Course

The American Institute of Professional Bookkeepers (AIPB) has established a professional certification, the Certified Bookkeeper (CB) credential, a high professional standard for bookkeepers.  Certified Bookkeepers (CBs) are to bookkeeping what CPAs are to accounting; the cream of the profession.  The three courses in the NCC certificate program focus on preparing the student for the National Certified Bookkeeper tests by helping the student truly master the skills and knowledge required for certification, which include: adjusting and correcting entries (accruals and deferrals); basic book and tax depreciation; basic payroll including paying wages, withholding, depositing and reporting taxes using the basic forms (W-2, 941, 940, etc.); recording and costing out merchandise inventory, and internal controls and fraud prevention.  Upon completion of each course, students should take the appropriate National Bookkeeping Exam.  The three courses do not need to be taken in any order.

Required Courses:  Mastering, Correcting and Adjusting Entries; Mastering Depreciation and Payroll; Mastering Inventory, Internal Controls and Fraud Prevention

These courses are offered in the Fall and Spring semesters.
