Preparing for QuickBooks ProAdvisor certification

Intuit, maker of QuickBooks software, estimates that there are more than 4 million small businesses using QuickBooks in the United States today. In today's difficult economy, with so many people out of work, news reports indicate that many of the formerly employed are starting their own businesses, so that number is likely to continue to grow rapidly.

Intuit provides a referral network for QuickBooks users seeking the help of professional accountants and bookkeepers. In particular, Intuit offers certification as a QuickBooks Certified ProAdvisor and then refers QuickBooks customers who are seeking help to the Certified ProAdvisors.

If you are thinking of becoming a QuickBooks Certified ProAdvisor, Intuit offers online training material as well as offering live training classes around the country through its Intuit Academy. Before you begin the training process, you might find Preparing for QuickBooks ProAdvisor Certification to be a helpful document.

In this 44-page document, you learn about the value of certification, how the certification process works, information about operating a business as a certified ProAdvisor, and a thorough summary of the self-study certification course that Intuit offers.
