Qualified Bookkeepers are in demand to prepare data for input into either standard software, or specially written accounting programs of their firms.
The course in Basic Bookkeeping has been prepared to teach learners the skills required to master standard accounting procedures, and to keep a basic set of books. This course starts with the assumption that the learner does not know the basics of Accounting and moves through to the preparation of a Trial Balance and closing off the ledger accounts.
The number of workbooks submitted by the student determines the duration of the course. Each workbook will be assessed and returned to the student, together with comments. No examination is written, and students will graduate on the average marks attained for worbooks submitted.

Each delegate will be handed a full and comprehensive set of reference notes. The study material is copyrighted to PBS College.
