Office Administration Bootcamp – with QuickBooks

Are you looking for work in an office, but need to know more about accounting? This free, 5-week bootcamp is perfect for people who are comfortable in Microsoft Office, but want to add QuickBooks to their skillset for positions like Office Manager/Administrator or Accounting Assistant.
