Both in-class and Livestreamed options are available for this class. For livestreamed classes, attend at the scheduled virtual class time, from the comfort of your home computer. Livestreaming means you interact with a REAL Instructor, in real-time, from your computer. This is NOT pre-recorded content. (You must log in and attend at the time class is offered, this is not a “watch-when-you-like” option.)
Students will work with a sample company and a comprehensive and ongoing set of books for this company. Each lesson builds on the prior ones so that by the end of the course, students will have a full set of books, including general journal, sales journal, cash receipts journal, general ledger, accounts receivable subledger and accounts payable subledger.
You will also learn to use a more detailed approach to daily/monthly bookkeeping procedures. Year-end and related topics will be covered in more depth, as well as some payroll practice, and other additional topics, including NSF cheques and bad debts, interest on overdue customer accounts, inventory accounting and credit cards (used/accepted).
At the last class students will present their set of books and financial statements to the Instructor for a quick review prior to receiving their Certificate of course completion.
Your Instructor is a practicing Accountant and experienced teacher. By the end of this course, you will have sufficient bookkeeping ability to graduate to using a computerized accounting system. Some homework is required.
A course manual and/or exercise book is included with your registration fee.
(you will be called when your textbook is ready for pick up at the FVCE office before class starts or we will ship it for $20 fee).
Please bring a hand calculator to class.
A Certificate will be issued upon course completion.

For livestreamed classes:
You will need:
- A computer (Mac or PC), or an Android smartphone, or an Android tablet, or an iPad or iPhone. As long as it has a webcam and microphone, you’re good to go! (And YES, you can disable your camera for privacy!)
- NO special software
- NO additional costs
- NO technical know-how or fancy tools
Livestreamed classes are just “click-and-enter”
Once you have registered, an email will be sent to you a few days before the class, with a link to click and enter the virtual classroom. Nothing to download, nothing to install. Your webcam and microphone can display your image and voice to the rest of the class, or you can choose to mute the microphone or turn off the camera. You will still be able to hear and see the Instructor.
Livestreamed classes are EXACTLY the same content as the in-person class
Get exactly the same handouts, same exercises, and same interaction with your Instructor, as if you were in the same room with them. Ask all your same questions, hear your fellow classmates, and see the same presentations. No compromises.
