For those looking to improve their skills, start a new career, or have recently graduated from high school and are looking for a solid major, Casper College offers a degree or certificate in bookkeeping.

“Completing your education in accounting or bookkeeping boosts your opportunity to work in many roles across every business, 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 2019, bookkeepers in Wyoming earn $11.24 to $27.84 an hour and $23,390 to $57,900 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. 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 Monday, Aug. 24.
