Accounting Assistant

21-credit Technical Certificate

Combine hands-on computer training with accounting concepts and procedures, and learn to perform entry-level bookkeeping and accounting work. Graduates may work in a small business and be responsible for all aspects of bookkeeping, or they may work in a larger firm, under the supervision of an accountant, and specialize in a certain area. This certificate provides a solid foundation for further study in the accounting field; courses are directly transferrable into WCTC’s Accounting Associate of Applied Science degree.

Credit Transfer Opportunities

WCTC has agreements with local high schools and various four-year colleges and universities that enable students to transition more seamlessly from high school to WCTC to four-year colleges. Transcripted credit agreements provide high school students the opportunity to take WCTC courses at their high schools. Agreements with four-year colleges enable WCTC graduates in selected programs to transfer credits, often at junior-level standing. Agreements currently in place for this program are listed below.

There are no credit transfer agreements for this program at this time. For more information, contact your academic advisor.
