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 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.
