An academic certificate is a document that demonstrates that an individual has successfully completed predetermined coursework in a given industry or area. It is typically earned in less time than a degree program, but still provides valuable skills that are in high demand by today’s global workforce.

Just what is a Certificate in Accounting? This comprehensive course of study allows students to develop strong quantitative and communicative skills while simultaneously becoming acclimated with accounting ethics and details. Areas of study in such a program often include basic mathematic principles, computer and word processing, business and technical fundamentals, and a thorough review of a variety of computerized accounting applications and software. Accounting assistants are in extremely high demand, and a Certificate in Accounting offers participants the skill set necessary to work in conjunction with CPAs, small businesses, major corporations or as independent contractors, among other areas.

Students who successfully complete an accounting certificate course are prepared for work in a wide range of global positions. They are also generally able to command more money and are often hired over their career competitors without certificates or academic degrees.

The cost of obtaining a Certificate in Accounting varies greatly from school to school and is based on the geographic region through which the certificate program is offered; it’s recommended that interested students contact each individual school or organization of interest for specific tuition information.

Accounting certificate holders are prepared for work across a broad array of global industries. Many go on to find work as accounting assistants, bookkeepers or auditing clerks, while others take on various accounting-related roles within small businesses or major conglomerates. Others find work alongside CPAs or as independent accounting contractors.
