CCV to launch certified bookkeeping credential

New program debuts Jan. 23 in Rutland
RUTLAND—This spring, Community College of Vermont (CCV) will expand workforce opportunities with its new Certified Public Bookkeeper (CPB) program, which provides a nationally-recognized credential in the field of accounting, according to a Jan. 6 news release. The CPB program can be completed in one 15-week semester.
The college has worked closely with local organizations to develop the CPB program, and the Rutland accounting firms Reconciled It, Valente & Seward CPAs, PLLC, and Davis & Hodgdon Associates have guaranteed job interviews for those who earn the credential. Other Vermont companies will provide information on contracted work opportunities to students throughout the spring.
“We’ve spent the last year talking to CPA firms and local companies statewide and there’s clearly a lot of demand for skilled bookkeepers,” said Mike Keogh, business and community outreach manager at CCV. “Our goal for this program is to not only develop a level of professionalism but also to create a pathway to high-paying, high-wage careers for Vermonters. This program allows Vermonters to take classes at night for one semester, and to build their credentials on a part-time basis as they transition into a professional career,” he added.
The certification is offered through the National Association of Certified Public Bookkeepers (NACPB) and is accredited by the National Bookkeepers Association (NBA).
The first CPB course will be held on Monday and Thursday evenings from 5 to 9 p.m. at CCV’s Rutland academic center, beginning Jan. 23. The program will be offered throughout the state in subsequent semesters. CCV advisors will be available for individual guidance and for assistance with funding options.
For more information, contact CCV-Rutland at 802-786-6996 or Mike Keogh at 802-786-5188.
