Do I need to use QuickBooks Premier: Nonprofit edition?
No! Although you do see how the Nonprofit version works, you'll learn that all the workarounds and techniques you learn apply to QuickBooks Pro, Premier, and Enterprise Edition. Note: a few techniques won't work with Pro, but the instructor calls them out and none would stop you from making Pro work for your organization.
How does the OnDemand class work?
After you place your order, you receive log-in credentials for the course via email. Follow the link in the email, type your username and password, and start learning!
Do you offer a money-back guarantee on your OnDemand training?
Absolutely! If you are not completely satisfied with the training, send an email to within 30 days of your purchase and you will receive a full refund. We stand behind our classes. No hassle. No question.

Please note: If you use the Intuit QuickBooks Certification voucher before the refund, we will deduct $156 (cost of voucher) from your refund.
What is certification and how do I get it?
Students can validate their QuickBooks knowledge by becoming an Intuit QuickBooks Certified User (QBCU). This test is offered at Universities and technical schools and costs $156 for individuals to take. BUT it’s FREE if you enroll in Mastering QuickBooks Level 1! This is a MUST-HAVE for anyone who uses QuickBooks (and wants to prove they can) in their career. This course also includes a 200-page pdf study manual, test prep materials, and a practice test to help you prepare!
Are the self-paced courses hands-on?
If you have QuickBooks installed on your computer, you can pause the class and switch to QuickBooks to practice hands-on.
Do I need QuickBooks on my computer?
No. You can view the training on any device with an internet connection. Anytime, anywhere.

No risk, money-back guarantee
