The accounting technician program prepares students for entry-level accounting positions in payables and/or receivables, bookkeeping and payroll accounting. This program covers financial decision-making tools for the small business operator as well.

The accounting technician certificate represents the first year of training toward the Applied Accounting A.A.S. degree. Students admitted into the Accounting B.B.A. degree program may apply their earned certificate credits toward the State of Alaska's 150 hour requirement for a CPA license.
