“I feel that my education at KCC has really made me well equipped to do my job. I use skills that I developed in courses like QuickBooks and Excel in bookkeeping and a lot of my tax preparation work. Even more valuable was my experience in the 193V course. Being able to work in the accounting field while I was going to school really helped me to integrate my accounting knowledge. I was also able to learn other types of accounting software and skills that I am using at my present job. I would highly recommend KCC's accounting program to anyone that is interested in the accounting field.”

“ I am currently working for my mom who is a bookkeeper. She did not have time to really teach my accounting so I enrolled at KCC. Although some of the classes were time consuming, learning everything I did really helped in the accounting world. I'm glad I did it!”
