Bucks graduates first cohort from Bookkeeping with QuickBooks Certification

Information sessions are scheduled for Jan. 5 and 12 for the next 7-week class starting Feb. 8

Bucks County Community College recognized 13 students who completed the inaugural cohort for the Bookkeeping with QuickBooks Certification training program.

The training was funded as part of a $420,000 CARES Act grant that the Center for Workforce Development received from the County of Bucks to address the displacement of county residents as a result of COVID-19. All students were able to attend the training for free due to grant funding, enabling them to explore new career pathways and industries while having the opportunity to upskill their already existing skill set.

The online, 7-week Bookkeeping with Quickbooks Certification program provided intensive training designed to help students gain the skills needed for entry-level jobs in administrative, office manager and bookkeeping positions. Students also gained crucial employability skills, such as resume writing, interviewing training and networking opportunities. The training was fully remote, so the students increased their digital literacy and gained experience in working from home.

Bucks will begin a new cohort on Feb. 8. Online information sessions will be held on Jan. 5 and 12, at 1 p.m. To register for an information session or to learn more, visit bucks.edu/wfd or contact Julie Rita-Di Pietro at Julie.rita-dipietro@bucks.edu.
