Accounting course for beginners

Many entrepreneurs see bookkeeping as a necessary evil: not the nicest activity, but certainly one of the most important. So it is important to keep this task as clear and practical as possible in order to get a clear overview of how the finances and the business are doing in a minimum of time.

Our trainers introduce the most common and simplest bookkeeping methods (and programmes) and let you work with your own input, so that the knowledge you gain can be applied immediately in practice. During the training there will be ample time for asking questions and for providing practical cases from your work situation.

"I was pleasantly surprised by the training. What I learned is very applicable in my work situation. To be honest, I expected the training to be a bit boring. Especially for someone who is not really interested in accounting as such. However, this training proved me wrong."
