Accounting courses are given either as quick practical courses or as longer term series of courses. (such as in university) 

Courses can be taken “on campus” at colleges or universities or

“off campus” in private settings such as given by Accounting Courses Montreal.

Typically in the fall or winter semesters day or night at a college or university, or

Given throughout the year on two successive Saturdays at Accounting Courses Montreal.

Because accounting is difficult to learn on your own. Many people learn on the job but there are always doubts. What is needed is a structured course given by an experienced educator to fill in the blanks. Ideally the instructor gives immediate feedback and relates practical examples used by companies here in Montreal.

Accounting Courses Montreal provides a two-day comprehensive course given by chartered professional accountant, Frank McInnis CPA, CA who has been teaching accounting and bookkeeping courses at the collegial level and to small business owners for over 30 years.

In a small class of students (i.e. 5 to 6 students) with no prior accounting knowledge, operating in a workshop format, students produce the required reports using their own laptops.  Source documents provided are input into a general ledger using Excel workbooks. Financial statements are then produced together with the necessary sales tax (GST QST) and payroll reports. Finally some financial analysis is done.

The course costs $195.00 plus tax and is paid at the first class. Students are sent an invoice by email before attending the first class. The only prerequisite is a basic knowledge of Microsoft Excel.

As a business entrepreneur in construction I took the course to help me answer my government filing needs but also to allow me to control costs in my business. Frank has an extensive backgroung in accounting and in training small business and it shows. He has a creative way of presenting the concepts and ideas in a way that I could remember. As he says he is not trying to build the entire house in two days, but if he can build the frame the rest can be added after.

I was a graduate in accounting in my native Germany. I took the course to learn local rules and regulations of Quebec and more particularly Monteal. Frank is an easygoing teacher who covers alot in two days and makes it look so easy. I now run a bookkeeping firm and refer new staff to Frank for training in bookkeeping.
Katrin Boitkin
Graduate in Accounting
I travel abroad to work on development projects in areas like Africa. I have my own corporation and wanted to know more about how to keep GST QST, payroll and file my financial reports. Frank is so patient and makes us think by interweaving real business stories with the accounting concepts.
