WHY ENROLL IN OUR ACCELERATED BOOKKEEPING CERTIFICATE PROGRAM?

Lackawanna’s Accelerated Bookkeeping professional certification program instills in students the necessary knowledge to play a vital role in tasks related to recording financial transactions, maintaining records, creating statements, and tracking customer or client accounts.

An Accelerated Bookkeeping certification from Lackawanna College prepares students to obtain a position in many high-demand industries such as: professional services, financial institutions, retail, insurance, wholesale, and healthcare.

Note that bookkeeping differs from accounting in the sense that bookkeepers work with more day-to-day financial transactions. Accountants, meanwhile, oversee an organization’s finances on a grander scale.

Anyone employed as a bookkeeper needs to pay attention to the smallest details to know what is happening every day in a business’s financial records.

An accountant might collect historical financial data from the organization and try to predict the business’s future performance based on market trends and other factors.
