The Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service will offer a QuickBooks Pro Desktop Short Course on Sept. 29 in Vernon.
The training will run from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Texas A&M AgriLife Research and Extension Center, 11708 U.S. Highway 70.
“COVID prevented us from holding any live classes last fall, so this is one of the first in-person QuickBooks workshops our agency has scheduled in two years,” said DeDe Jones, AgriLife Extension risk management specialist, Amarillo.
Jones, along with Will Keeling, AgriLife Extension risk management specialist, Lubbock, will conduct the courses.
“We’ve never had a QuickBooks class in Vernon, and it will be a great opportunity for producers,” said Pancho Abello, AgriLife Extension economist, Vernon.
“We are limiting each session to 12 participants because we want each attendee to be in front of a computer,” Jones said.
Getting your money’s worth
Registration is $75 and includes computer use and teaching materials. Couples are encouraged to attend and will be charged only one registration fee if they share a computer.
Those planning to attend should RSVP by Sept. 27. Payment is due upon arrival on the first day of the course.
QuickBooks Pro is a double-entry business accounting program often used by agricultural lenders and producers. It is available in both a desktop and online version, but only the desktop version will be taught.
During the one-day course, participants will learn to enter transactions into the program and analyze costs and profits. No prior computer experience is necessary, Jones said.
