Certiport Process (Apply)

Intuit QuickBooks Certified User (QBCU)

Bookkeeping in the 21st Century requires more than knowledge of GAAP principles or an eye for detail—students need relevant computing skills. Intuit® QuickBooks, the industry leader in managerial accounting software for small business, provides an easy-to-understand platform for students to grasp accounting concepts while honing skills in the most prevalent bookkeeping application in small business today. Students can validate their QuickBooks knowledge by becoming an Intuit QuickBooks Certified User (QBCU).

Microsoft Office Specialist (MOS)

The GMetrix Skills Management System will help students prepare for the Microsoft Office Specialist (MOS) Certification.  Only students who have successfully scored on a GMetrix exam are advanced as candidates for Certiport testing.
