Accounting In An Hour™ is the acclaimed 60-minute course for non-financial personnel that can help risk management professionals and their employees become more productive and valuable on the job. Delivered over the Internet, the course offers effective training for anyone at their convenience… anytime, anywhere.

Whether you’re new to the subject or just looking for a good refresher, this course demystifies accounting and finance concepts by providing the basics in just 60 minutes. It prepares learners to understand and get more involved in financial discussions and to make better decisions on financial matters.

Whether you’re working with a small, medium or large organization, chances are you’ll never achieve your expectations if you’re unable to answer questions like these with confidence:

  • What does EBITDA mean?
  • Why is budgeting so important?
  • What is the difference between cash flow and profitability?
  • What is the difference between an Income Statement and a Balance Sheet?

If you’re unsure about even one of those questions, you’re probably not prepared to contribute as well as others at meetings where finance is discussed. You’ll never be counted on to give a meaningful financial opinion…and that relegates you to second-tier status in the minds of your clients, colleagues and superiors.

Now you can gain the accounting knowledge you’re missing by taking the fast-paced course that has been such a hit with employees at institutions like the U.S. Government, Boeing, Canon, Dell, Harrah’s Entertainment, International Paper and Pitney Bowes. If you invest just sixty minutes in this course, you’ll not only think about your role in your organization in an entirely different manner, but everyone else will think about you differently too. You’ll have the tools to take part in meetings, contribute in financial discussions, and become more successful in your career.

In only an hour, your trainers will show you, step-by-proven-step, how to expertly evaluate Income Statements, Balance Sheets, Write-offs, Expensing vs. Capitalizing, Investment Criteria, Working Capital, and more…and they’ll also give you valuable insight into how some very high-profile company executives wrongfully manipulated financial data to enrich themselves at the expense of employees and stockholders.

To assess the learning impact of this course, brief pre-course and post-course quizzes are contained within the courseware. These quizzes consist of 10 multiple choice and true or false questions. Immediately after completing the online version of this course, learners will immediately receive a report of their scores along with the percent improvement…all within the 60-minute timeframe.
