Accounting Software Applications

This course covers an accounting software application and Microsoft excel, both of which will be used in current and/or future courses in the accounting program. The accounting software application is designed to give students a basic introduction to computerized accounting and a practical hands-on approach to setting up and operating one of the most popular integrated accounting packages – Sage 50 and Quickbooks. The excel part of the course will expand upon skills learned in Comp 2209 and introduce the student to advanced functions commonly used by accountants. Students will prepare for the Microsoft Office Specialist Test for Excel and will have the opportunity to take the certification test at the end of the course.
