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).

It's a Difference Employers Can See Instantly

QuickBooks software brings the real-life, on-the-job functionality that bookkeepers and accountants rely on. It's no wonder that 84% of accounting instructors at two-year colleges feel that students preparing for careers in accounting should be well-acquainted with QuickBooks. QBCU certification is the best way to communicate one's skills and expertise of QuickBooks to potential employers and stand out from the crowd in a competitive job market.

The newest version of the certification exam is QuickBooks Pro/Premier 2015. This new exam includes simulation-based questions. Simulation questions very accurately replicate the QuickBooks application, as though the test taker were actually using QuickBooks. They will be asked to perform specific tasks and complete functions as they would in QuickBooks. This format presents a very realistic and practical test environment.
