Introduction to QuickBooks keeps students, businesses from slowing down

June 3, 2009

CASA GRANDE, Ariz. – Mismanaging personal and small business accounts can lead to financial disaster, but Central Arizona College’s Introduction to QuickBooks course can offer a lifeline long before the economic tsunami crashes onto the shore.

For a quartet of consecutive Saturdays starting July 11, the CAC Corporate Center will offer a one-credit computer software course introducing participants to QuickBook Pro 2008. The class will run from 1-4:15 p.m. in Room 104 on July 11, 18, 25 and August 1.

The Central Arizona College Corporate Center is located at 540 N. Camino Mercado in Casa Grande – just off the I-10 exit at Florence Boulevard on the site of the former Palm Center Outlet.

“Students will be able to customize the software files for their specific businesses, accounts and vendors,” Al Larson, the director of business and community outreach in the Casa Grande area, said. “Students will be able to enter daily transactions and identify reports that will be beneficial to the profitability of their company and their personal accounts.”

The class will be taught by Kathleen Reiner who has developed A Beginners Guide to Using QuickBooks that will be provided to all participants.

“This class is geared toward small business owners who do not have much accounting experience,” Jim Rhodes, the director of CAC’s Small Business Development Center, explained. “It will allow them to use QuickBooks for day-to-day bookkeeping.”

The investment into the class is $62 for Arizona residents – the cost of one college credit at Central Arizona College beginning July 1.

For more information on the class, or to register, please contact the CAC Corporate Center at 520-494-6600.
