QuickBooks Desktop Certification
There are 10 optional online, self-study Certification Courses designed for accounting professionals who have a solid understanding of accounting principles, and already have fundamental knowledge of the QuickBooks software. Each course gives Continuing Professional Education (CPE) credit (hours vary by course). The training courses are provided to help you pass the exams.

Certification is granted upon successful completion of a separate Certification Exam. To take the Exam, you should be comfortable working with and knowing topics like what's new in QuickBooks in 2014, QuickBooks setup, recording transactions, reporting, etc.

You get six attempts to pass the exam and need a score of 80% or higher. Depending upon your level of QuickBooks knowledge you may take the exam without reviewing the coursework and get certified in as little as 4 hours. If you pass, congrats you are done! If you do not pass, you will be given the questions to which you had incorrect answers so that you may study the applicable courses. If you don't have a lot of QuickBooks experience, we recommend you review the coursework before taking the exam. Reviewing all 10 courses for CPE may take up to 17 hours.

All courses and the exam are available online on the QuickBooks ProAdvisor member website, and once you join, can be completed at your own pace.

A shortened re-certification exam option is available to those who have successfully completed the two most recent full certification exams.

Please note: Each certification course gives Continuing Professional Education (CPE) credit (hours vary by course).
