Accounting & Bookkeeping Programs

The Professional Bookkeeper program was designed to be agnostic to specific accounting software to properly learn the accounting process from creating the chart of accounts through to producing the financial reports. Experiencing the accounting process in a hands-on way instills a confidence in the accounting model. Doing assignments longhand with 11 different industries also brings in the competencies needed to have a sixth sense within the accounting process. Likewise as a Professional Bookkeeper you learn the relationship of debits and credits in a way that you can later use any accounting software with confidence.

Accounting and bookkeeping courses will be added in the future to keep pace with the rapidly evolving financial technology and regulatory sectors.

Color Accounting, CA

Designed to make it easier to learn the fundamentals of accounting. It is an augmentation to the process that you know so well, and is in no way a substitute or replacement for traditional accounting.

We use color to augment how financial statements are presented, and the graphical format that results (the BaSIS Framework) helps the learner to visualize the Balance Sheet and Income Statement in a more memorable way. There is neurological evidence that most people “do colors” better than lefts and rights and ups and downs. The BaSIS  Framework explains how the
Income Statement connects to the Balance Sheet.

This umbilical-like relationship, once seen, is hugely memorable, and something that even accountants may not have truly ‘got’ when they studied. There are other more subtle reasons, such as how the colors reinforce the inherent ‘duality’ that exists in accounting, etc. The utility of colors in this system is profound enough to have garnered patents for its inventors.
