SVHEC offers QuickBooks financial software workshop / April 05, 2010
The Southern Virginia Higher Education’s (SVHEC) Department of Workforce Assessment and Advancement will be offering QuickBooks Financial Software Workshops beginning May 11. Workshops for beginning and intermediate users will be available for a nominal fee.

QuickBooks is one of the most popular accounting software packages, providing an easy way to track and maintain your organization’s financial health. QuickBooks allows users to quickly pay bills, to effortlessly create invoices, to easily generate easy-to-read financial reports, and to stay on top of incoming receipts and outgoing payments. Churches, non-profits, and small businesses in need of professional quality accounting software are encouraged to take advantage of the QuickBooks training workshops.

Two QuickBooks workshops, Introduction and Intermediate, will be held. Each workshop consists of two 3-hour sessions. Introduction to QuickBooks for new and beginning users will be offered on May 11 and 13 from 6-9 p.m. Intermediate QuickBooks, for more advanced users, will be offered on May 18 and 20 from 6-9 p.m. Class sessions for both courses will be in the SVHEC Perkins Computer Lab (second floor). The fee for each workshop is $70.

“QuickBooks is an economical product for any organization or small business who needs an all in one accounting system, and these workshops will get you started,” said SVHEC Accounting Manager and workshop facilitator Brenda Terry. Terry holds a Bachelor’s degree in accounting from Averett University, and a Master’s degree in accounting from Strayer University. She has used QuickBooks extensively in her roles at the SVHEC.

Those interested in registering for one of the QuickBooks workshops should return a completed registration form with payment to the SVHEC. Registration forms are available at the SVHEC and online at
