A new Associate of Applied Science degree in bookkeeping and a new certificate in bookkeeping will be offered by Casper College beginning with the fall 2019 semester.

“Casper employers are willing to hire bookkeepers with a one-year certificate,” said Mark Oxley, accounting and business instructor. According to Oxley, both the certificate and degree are for those “… wanting to start or extend their career in bookkeeping.” According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics as of May 2017, bookkeepers in Wyoming earn $10.68 to $27.78 an hour and $22,220 to $57,780 annually.

“Both the bookkeeper certificate and bookkeeper degree can be obtained entirely online, and many classes can be taken as an online or lecture class,” Oxley noted. Some of the class topics that both degree and certificate programs cover include accounting principles, QuickBooks, payroll accounting, and spreadsheet applications while the degree goes further in-depth to cover business law, intermediate accounting, management, marketing, and other areas.

For more information or to register, contact Oxley at 307-268-2414 or or Rachel Wright, academic assistant at 307-268-2494 or Fall semester begins at Casper College on Monday, Aug. 19.
