Certified Public Bookkeeping Pathway

Bookkeeper at workCCV’s unique bookkeeping pathway allows you to earn 4 certifications from the National Association of Certified Public Bookkeepers (NACPB) in Bookkeeping, Accounting, QuickBooks Online, and Payroll. You can also advance your knowledge and skill and earn your CCV Bookkeeping Certificate along with 29 college credits. After documenting 2,000 hours of work experience and earning all four certifications you can also earn your Certified Public Bookkeeper (CPB) license and place the CPB designation next to your name.

You can choose to take a few courses and earn your NACPB certifications, or may choose to earn a full college certificate in Bookkeeping in addition to your certifications, or you may choose to earn all of these plus your CPB license and start your own practice. It’s your choice!

Here’s how it works:

  1. Apply to CCV
  2. Work with your advisor to plan your courses
  3. Take the appropriate certification exams when you feel comfortable and add all four of your new certifications to your resume
  4. (Optional) Submit documentation of 2,000 hours of work experience to the NACPB and place CPB next to your name. Find application here.

Upon completion of the CCV Bookkeeping certificate you can apply credits toward CCV’s accounting degree for transfer to a 4-year program and work toward your CPA as you earn an income as a bookkeeper while building valuable experience and your client base.
