Program Overview

If you are organized and enjoy working with numbers, an accounting assistant certificate could be the right choice for you. Accounting is an excellent foundation for employment in any office or business. Managerial positions often require a general understanding of accounting functions.

NSCC’s one-year certificate program equips students with skills in balance sheets, income statements, payroll accounting and personal tax accounting. Typical tasks of an accounting assist include computing fees, compiling data, preparing invoices and keeping other relevant records.

A full-time student could be employable in one year as a payroll clerk, accounts payable or receivable clerk, or general accounting bookkeeper in business or industry. If you enjoy this work and are looking for more, in one additional year you could earn the associate degree in accounting.
