1992

About us

In 1992, Real World Training began providing one-on-one accounting services that specialized in small business accounting software (not very common back then)! We noticed that most of our time was spent fixing mistakes that users didn’t need to make.

This led to a thought that has become another part of our training philosophy: QuickBooks users can save a lot of time, money and frustration, if they just learned to avoid the mistakes in the first place. And so Real World Training began providing QuickBooks training classes nationwide, along with self-paced QuickBooks training courses so customers could learn on their own schedule.

The company grew and in 1998 Intuit (the makers of QuickBooks) officially endorsed Real World Training as their QuickBooks training partner (quite an honor then… and now). Real World Training works very closely with Intuit to help improve QuickBooks, train customer support teams and create special classes and certifications. Real World Training has focused on teaching QuickBooks users since 1992… that’s all we do.
