PLAINVIEW – Two short courses scheduled by the Texas AgriLife Extension Service on QuickBooks Pro 2012 for Aug. 13-14 in Lubbock and Sept. 4-5 in Amarillo filled rapidly, so a third has been scheduled for Aug. 23-24 in Plainview, according to the presenters.
The additional course will be held at the AgriLife Extension office in Hale County, 225 Broadway St., Plainview.
The trainings will run from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day at each location, said DeDe Jones, AgriLife Extension risk management specialist in Amarillo, who will coordinate the event in that city. Jay Yates, AgriLife Extension risk management specialist in Lubbock, will coordinate the Lubbock course.
QuickBooks Pro is a double-entry business accounting program often used by agricultural lenders and producers, Jones said. In the two-day course, participants will learn to enter transactions into the program and analyze costs and profits. No prior computer experience is necessary.
Registration for the two-day course is $125 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. Class size is limited to 15 people to provide a hands-on experience for all participants, Jones said.
The Amarillo and Lubbock courses are full, but those who are still interested in taking the course in Plainview should RSVP by Aug. 20. Payment is due upon arrival on the first day of the course.
