Re: We are thinking of asking potential job candidates to take a brief QB test. Is there anything like that available? Not interested in reinventing the wheel.
The closest thing QB offers is Pro Advisor exams. If you use QBO have each prospect sign up for free QBOA account and take training and free exam.
If you use desktop it is a little presumptive to make potential employees buy Pro Advisor membership for $349 To gain access to the exam process with no guarantee of employment.
Check with your local high school or community college to see if either offers minimal or no cost QB classes and require attendance at that or proof of same.
But I can attest that any such training does not guarantee a better employed than one without. I have used QB desktop for 25 years and have never taken a class. It is called learning by doing and I am still learning.
