Bookkeeping CAS


The bookkeeping technical certificate program provides basic accounting and computer training to prepare graduates for entry-level employment in accounting related positions. Students will complete the Certified Bookkeeper Examination administered by the American Institute of Professional Bookkeepers during the last semester of the program. Successful completion of this exam is the first step toward earning the Certified Bookkeeper (CB) designation. Students interested in continuing their education upon completion of the certificate program may enroll in the business accounting associate degree program.  For more information on this program, contact Bryan Seldomridge at or 304-661-5190.
