Accounting and Payroll Administrator
The objective of this program is to train students in the practices of financial accounting and payroll in Canada. This program focuses on three key elements that expose each student to gain an understanding of the theoretical principles of accounting and payroll, the practical “hands on” skill required to do the job and the communication skills needed to work within an office environment. Each successful student will have the necessary skills to enter into the workforce and maintain a complete set of books, both manually and with computerized systems.
This program provides our students the opportunity to obtain Payroll Compliance Practitioner (PCP) certification, issued by the Canadian Payroll Association (CPA). The certification is nationally recognized as a Standard of Excellence for payroll training. Each student will be prepared to write the following 3 CPA exams as part of the program: Payroll Compliance Legislation (PCL), Payroll Fundamentals 1 (PF1), and Payroll Fundamentals 2 (PF2). This program also prepares students to take the following Microsoft Office Specialist (MOS) exams: Expert Level MOS Microsoft Excel & Core Level MOS Microsoft Word.
Graduates of this program will have the opportunity to enter the workplace with the skills to perform the tasks carried out by employees within accounting departments such as Accounts Receivable, Accounts Payable, Billing, Payroll and Collections. Employers are looking for competent accounting and payroll professionals who are trained to effectively collect, record, organize and prepare financial records. An accounting background is one of the first steps into Business Management.
