Conestoga College, in cooperation with the Canadian Institute of Bookkeeping, offers a program leading to a career as a professional bookkeeper. CIB is a national, nonprofit organization dedicated to preparing men and women for greater financial and job security as a Certified Bookkeeper. The program is comprised of nine courses that include both theory and computer application.
Practical experience is required before qualifying for certification. Upon completion of the program, students will be governed by a Code of Ethics which sets out professional responsibilities and conduct. A grade of 65% is required. Certain courses may be subject to a time limit for registration.
Note: Students who have taken courses that were previously listed as equivalencies will still receive credit even though the courses are no longer offered, provided they are registered with CIB within the time limit.
