Stark State College offers a one-year certificate program in bookkeeping for non-degree-seeking students. Students may apply credits earned in this certificate program to the accounting associate degree program. Students will be awarded a certificate in bookkeeping upon completion of the courses listed. Students must still pass the Certified Bookkeepers Examination to become certified. This examination is administered by the American Institute of Professional Bookkeepers.
Many students opt to pursue an associate degree in accounting after receiving a bookkeeping certificate.
The goal is that the students successfully completing the one-year bookkeeping certificate will be exposed to all the tools and skills necessary to be successful in the undertaking of entry level positions in the field of accounting. Areas of entry may include, but are not limited to bookkeeper, accounts receivable specialist and accounts payable specialist.
