QuickBooks Premier

In the QuickBooks Premier course, students are introduced to QuickBooks and its features. As students progress through the course, they become familiar with the QuickBooks interface and learn how to perform common tasks using QuickBooks. Students learn how to use the Easy Step Interview to create a company file, how to customize the Chart of Accounts for the company, manage lists (customer, vendor, item, employee and payroll), create business forms (invoices, cheques, cash sales receipts, credit memos and refunds), use registers, pay bills (using cheques, credit cards and petty cash), create reports (balance sheet, profit and loss, customer and vendor balance detail), and manage a payroll (add/edit employees, process pay cheques, run payroll reports, and manage the payroll liabilities). Students also perform several account reconciliations (chequing, credit card, and petty cash).

The course is presented using a combination of conceptual material, how-to procedures, and practical tasks, and emphasizes hands-on use and exploration of QuickBooks. It consists of 15 lessons, a lab exercise, and a final exam. As students work through the lessons in this course, they are given ample opportunity to practice, apply, and develop the skills learned.
