*If you are looking for an official Certification that is sponsored by Intuit, Inc (Maker of QuickBooks) we recommend having a Payroll Class and combined with 12 months of experience… should be enough to take the Intuit QuickBooks Certified User Exam, which is taken independently from our classes:
|Intuit offers an official examination called: “Certified QuickBooks User” which also includes Payroll AND OTHER ADVANCED related topics which we do not cover in our first 2 levels. After taking our course and combining it with some experience you can get ready to the the Certified User exam at a Certiport Testing Center. We cover about 60% of contents from this exam in our 2-day Course Program, 20% from our Payroll Class, and the last 20% comes from hands-on experience.
