The session will run from 9:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. The class will be held in North Platte, NE at the Mid Plains Community College - North Campus.

This full day training is for those new to QuickBooks, and looking to learn how to setup Quickbooks software to make it more effective for their business. Computers equipped with QuickBooks will be available,  REAP Loan Specialist Jerry Terwilliger with the Center for Rural Affairs, will assist folks with setting up their books.
"In this economy, many, if not most, small businesses are operating on very tight budgets to simply get by," said Terwilliger. “Resource Providers and business owners alike see the great need for bookkeeping training. Improving bookkeeping is a way to tighten up in these economic times." 
A past participant of the QuickBooks trainings said, "This really helped me with my operation. The system needs to be set up right, with information entered correctly so that the reports are accurate. This was the best thing for me, and was also very useful for working with my banker."
