Your instructor will stay to help you one-on-one to get you the answer you need.

Special Q&A sessions at the end of each day

Live in-person class
“Very good, detail training provided. Plenty of time for attendees to ask questions.”
K. Lannan
Live in-person class
“It was very eye opening for me with all the tips and tricks I did not know about. My instructor was very knowledgeable and ready to answer any questions. She is very energetic… Definitely not a boring class! Very happy… thank you for the flyer”
P. Liev
Live in-person class
“It is so nice to have an instructor led class. I feel that you learn so much more in that case. I learned many things that will help me with my future Quickbooks use.”
H. Shupp
Live in-person class
“My instructor’s knowledge of QuickBooks was extremely helpful in furthering my understanding. I enjoyed the class and would recommend it to both beginners and advanced users of QuickBooks. The tips and tricks are something that everyone can learn from!”
K. Zook
Live online class (webinar)
“Taking a training class online was not my first choice, but now is! The trainer was absolutely the best and I will definitely take another training class online!”
C. Martinez
Live online class (webinar)
“The interaction through gotowebinar is excellent and very productive. The instructor had a special skill to keep the class in full attention without running over her words or speaking to fast. the content is simple but very informative. Great job.”
R. Cedillo
Live online class (webinar)
“If you are going to take Quick Books training we highly recommend that you take it online with Real World. Our instructor was knowledgeable, patient, funny, and honest. A decade of webinars, classes, and training experience. We also signed up for Diamond VIP membership to continue QB education which we know will be excellent… RWT has done a great job building a top notch team.”
M. Duffy
Live online class (webinar)
“As a new beginner to Quick Books, this was very informative. I was a bit overwhelmed on day 1but by day 2 I was  familiar with the screens and what they do. I recommend printing the manual so you can follow along and make your own personal notes.”
B. Busch
Live online class (webinar)
“I took the Mastering Quickbooks Level 1 webinar. The instructor did an excellent job of facilitating the course. She was easy to follow and understand. I was pleased that she took extra time to answer all the participants questions. I highly recommend this training.”
M. Ryke
How much does your live class cost?
The tuition is $579.95. This includes 2 days of training, full access to your instructor for Q&A, and a 200+ page manual that you can take back to the office for reference.
What happens after I sign up? What should I do?
After you sign up, you’ll receive a confirmation which guarantees your seat in the class. The confirmation includes all your class details (address, time, etc.). About 2 days before class your instructor will email you with additional info and some tips to prepare so you get the most out of class. They’ll also tell you what to expect on the day of the class (where to sign in, etc.) We recommend that you begin gathering any questions you may have so you have all your questions documented to take to class.
Can you teach at my office?
Unfortunately, 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 $5,000. So it only makes sense if you have a larger group. Call and speak with a Training Advisor for more information or a quote for your 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. We began teaching hands-on, but over 20 years of teaching we refined our method that guarantees the maximum learning in the shortest possible time.

If you feel like you need hands-on training, we offer the same class in a self-paced format. You can watch the instructor step by step, pause the training, and practice what you learn. Learn more by selecting Self-paced training at the top of this page.

Can I just attend Day 1 or Day 2 of the QuickBooks class?
Unfortunately not because we’ve designed the content to be delivered over 2 days. In other words, you’ll be lost if you don’t have the context and lessons from the other day. However, you can split Day 1 and Day 2 across different classes if necessary. Call our office at 800-564-2688 to speak to a training advisor.
What is the cancellation policy?
We’ll refund your tuition (less a $45 processing fee) if you email us 5 (five) days prior to the class. Regrettably we have to be strict about this policy because we finalize our room and set up fees with the hotel 5 days before class begins.
Which version of QuickBooks do you teach?
We always teach the current version. Don’t worry if you have a different version or edition. The instructor points out the differences between the different versions and editions.
There are no classes near me, what are my options?
No problem! We’ve spent 15 years perfecting the online delivery of the same 2 day class. Just like the in-person class, your live instructor will answer your questions…you can even type them if you prefer. And as an added bonus…you don’t have to leave your home or office! We offer the live online (webinar) class twice a month. (check out the reviews tab to hear what students say about the live online (webinar) experience!
Do you offer a money-back guarantee?
Yes, if you’re not satisfied for any reason, return your materials to the instructor by the end of the first day of class and you will receive a full refund. We don’t provide refunds if you miss the class. However, we’ll keep your credit so that you can attend another class in the future. If you have to miss the class, call a training advisor to discuss options to reschedule.
What if I miss the class because of illness or travel?
We apply your credit to another class of your choice (in your area or online). call a training advisor to discuss options.
Am I guaranteed a seat in the class when I place my order?
Yes. Your registration is guaranteed upon receipt of payment.
Can I split the class between dates? In other words, can I attend Day 1 this month and Day 2 the next time you're in my area?
Yes, Please call a training advisor at 800-564-2688 to set this up.
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.
