 Program Completion
Completion of a program is based on full time enrollment. Many of our students attend part time and may not complete within the one year timeline.

Upon successful completion of the Computerized Accounting Certificate, students are able to:

  • Demonstrate desirable work habits including verbal/written communication skills, technological competence, critical thinking, and problem solving.
  • Demonstrate ethical behavior and confidentiality with financial data.
  • Assume an entry-level position within a business to help in basic accounting activities with duties that may include data input in tax preparation, payroll, and general accounting functions.

According to the Occupational Outlook Handbook, there is a projected 4% decline in employment of bookkeeping and accounting clerks from 2018 to 2028 because of technological change. Because bookkeeping, accounting, and auditing clerks constitute a large occupation, there will be a large number of job openings from workers leaving the occupation. Thus, opportunities to enter the occupation should be plentiful, despite the slight projected decline in employment.

Students who desire to gain entry-level positions are prepared with the successful completion of this certificate. Students who are looking to pursue long-term employment in the field of accounting should continue with the Associate's degree in Business Administration, which prepares students for transfer to four-year accounting programs at the junior-level standing.
