Business Skills

Financial accounting is important for all companies, regardless of their size. Small businesses sometimes lack the capacity to keep up with records of billing and expenses, and get behind with record keeping. Through our Business Skills courses at the Center for Workforce Development at CCM, businesses can learn to record transactions thoroughly and systematically. This is important for establishing a record of a company's financial health, which becomes critical when applying for loans or establishing a working relationship with other businesses. 

In Accounting Fundamentals you will learn the basics of recording financial data, and in QuickBooks you will learn how this popular accounting software can help you keep up, manage your inventory, bills and expenses and get organized for tax time. Both classes will give you the tools to analyze your company's transactions so that you can move forward and make sound financial decisions.
