Course Purpose

This course provides an understanding of accounting information. It takes the user through the basics of what accounting information is, how it is developed, how it is used, and what it means. It's an excellent course for bookkeepers, accountants, and small business owners.

Course Overview

Financial statements are examined to learn what they do and do not communicate, enhancing the user’s decision-making and problem-solving abilities from a user perspective. Achieving expertise in the preparation of financial statements is not an objective of this course. Instead, we designed the course to assist users of financial information to learn “what the numbers mean” in a clear, concise, and conceptual manner, without focusing on the mechanical aspects of the accounting process.

Course Length

The course is an eleven-week course (one session per week). However, the course is an on-demand, self-study, self-paced course. Therefore, the length of the course is determined by the time you dedicate to the course and your understanding of accounting information.
