Educational Material

I am about to start holding QBO workshops for a nonprofit organization. Does Intuit have any educational material they share with educators?  I am a Quickbooks online Proadvisor.

Re: Educational Material

Hey @Desarie - that's a great question! You might start with this Educators' Welcome Kit for QuickBooks Online.

 

What sort of educational nonprofit are you working with?

Hi @EmilyCowan I will be working with Score.   We offer free business mentoring and training.

Re: Educational Material

@EmilyCowan Very helpful link, thank you. Do you also have a separate link for the US only? The link goes to Canada (CA website).

Re: Educational Material

@vpcontroller I noticed that as well.  I tried substituting the CA for US in the URL but that didn't work.  @EmilyCowan is there a US version?

@Desarie,

 

Great to hear about your upcoming workshops, I always enjoy going to hands-on training sessions. 

 

Depending on what you're looking for, we just created a brand new online training hub for first-time QuickBooks Online users, this might be good supplemental material for your course:

@Desarie@vpcontroller - I haven't found anything yet that's specific to US. I'll keep digging!

Re: Educational Material

@Desarie,

 

There's also an Intuit Educational Hub that might be useful, particularly the Resource Center. Is these the kinds of materials you need?

Re: Educational Material

@JamesOng my workshops will focus on training entrepreneurs to use QuickBooks online. I will also offer some training on how to read basic financial statements.

@Desarie, awesome, you'll get to work with some innately motivated learners. 

 

Send them this guide to help get them started: Setting up for Success in QuickBooks: Financial Reports and Reporting Features. It covers techniques to be proactive with your reporting.

Re: Educational Material

@GrisMendez,

 

Thanks for these additional resources! They slipped my mind. What have you used in the past?

Re: Educational Material

I have use McGraw Hill and Pearson for my Financial Accounting and QuickBooks class in College, the books were selected by the instructor. They are both very good and had a trial that I was able to use while taking the course.

Re: Educational Material

@GrisMendez, I am curious because you have an accounting background, by a rough estimate, how much did your accounting knowledge help you the first time you used QuickBooks?

 

I've seen individuals with widely varying degrees of pre-existing experience with accounting be successful in QuickBooks, it's hard for me to pinpoint how much is enough.

Re: Educational Material

How odd, I recently asked the same question to my QuickBooks Account Manager and I was told that I am not allowed to offer a course where I teach other people about QuickBooks Online. Ironically we were working with the SCORE and the SBDC as well.

 

Not to bring up an old subject, but can someone help me with the official stance about offering training courses if you are not a part of the Intuit Writer Network?

Re: Educational Material

@ParkwayInc, agreed, let me see if I can get some clarity on this. I am sure @Desarie is not the only ProAdvisor who has offered workshops.
