Our Trainers Creed

People Don't Care How Much You Know...Until They Know How Much You Care

  • Trevor Matheson

    15yrs. Teaching QuickBooks

    My passion is explaining complicated things in easy to understand language.... I’m obsessed with finding just the right way to explain something.

    Trevor used QuickBooks in his own business and has consulted to many industries over the years. He’s always searching for clearer and more fun and engaging ways to teach small business and QuickBooks knowledge in a way that everyone can understand.

  • Amy Marks

    5yrs. Teaching QuickBooks

    I feel exhilarated when I see a student get excited about what QuickBooks can do for their company. Learning QuickBooks can be a blast!

    Amy formed a solid QuickBooks and small business foundation during many years as a controller and consultant to multiple industries. Her experience helps her understand the challenges small businesses face.  She’s enthusiastic about sharing her knowledge and loves seeing students’ confidence rise as they learn how to use QuickBooks to its fullest potential!

  • Lamont Nesbitt

    8yrs. Teaching QuickBooks

    QuickBooks is a versatile tool that does much more than you realize! Unfortunately we can’t know what we don’t know...so come to a class and be pleasantly surprised!

    Lamont began as a support agent for Intuit (the makers of QuickBooks) in 1996. 10 years later he was a senior support engineer, but realized he loved teaching people to AVOID mistakes, instead of fixing mistakes. He wanted to teach people to “swim” instead of “throwing them a life jacket”. He makes learning fun and easy with his vast experience and engaging style.

  • Joanne Baker, MBA

    11yrs. Teaching QuickBooks

    My goal is to remove any fear or intimidation a student may feel. Everyone should leave unafraid of computers, accounting, and QuickBooks...you can do this!

    After completing her MBA, Joanne became a certified QuickBooks ProAdvisor in 1999...and she’s been teaching and consulting QuickBooks ever since. She uses her real world consulting experience and passion for removing hurdles to create an amazing learning environment where everyone walks away more confident and excited to succeed.

FAQs

Live Classroom FAQ's

Do you cover the same material in the live online version and classroom version of Mastering QuickBooks Payroll?

Yes.

Can you teach at my office?

We don’t provide one-on-one training, but we can teach a group at your location. We can even tailor the class to meet your needs. This cost varies but the minimum price is $6,000. So it only makes sense if you have a larger group.

Do I need to bring a laptop?

No. We teach the class “seminar-style.” This means we do the typing...and you do the learning! When everyone has a computer, the QuickBooks class can only move as fast as the slowest typist. Our method ensures that you'll learn the maximum amount of material with the smallest investment of time.

If you feel like you need hands-on training, we offer the same class in a self paced format (on demand or on CD/DVD). You can watch the instructor step by step, pause the training, and practice what you learn. Learn more about CD/DVD and OnDemand training.

What is the cancellation policy?

Refunds will be made only if cancellation request is received in writing 5 (five) business days prior to Class (minus $45 registration fee)

There are no classes near me, what are my options?

You can attend the exact same class online every 2 weeks. Learn more.

Which version of QuickBooks Payroll do you teach?

We always teach basic and enhanced. Don’t worry if you have a different version. The instructor will point out the differences between the version being taught and your version. Older versions work basically the same way and you’ll learn new and improved features! We do not cover QuickBooks Online Payroll, QuickBooks Payroll for Mac, or Assisted Payroll.

Do you offer a money-back guarantee?

Yes, if you're not satisfied for any reason, return your materials to the instructor by lunch on the first day of class and you will receive a full refund. We do not provide refunds if you do not attend class. We will, however, keep your credit so that you may attend another class in the future.

What if I miss the class because of illness or travel?

We apply your credit and apply it to another class of your choice (in your area or online).

Am I guaranteed a seat in the class when I place my order?

Yes. Your registration is guaranteed upon receipt of payment.

I am attending the class from out-of-town. Do you offer reduced hotel room rates?

Unfortunately we don’t. Hotels don’t provide this option unless we guarantee a number of rooms. We do strive to find reasonably-priced hotels. Contact the hotel directly for their rates.
