School adds up to better career

Photograph of BritniSingle-mom Britni wanted a better future for herself and her daughter than her temporary office clerk job could provide. She wanted to take the Bookkeeping course at AccData Computer Systems and Training, but she didn’t have all the prerequisite skill that she needed. AccData worked with Britni to help secure funding from the Government of Alberta for a Quick Office Admin Course. They also helped her apply for funding from Western Cree to help cover her living expenses. Britni enjoyed attending classes and benefited most from learning how to work well with others. Britni then took AccData’s Bookkeeping courses and completed a work experience with a real company. The company was very impressed with Britni’s skills—she completed a full year set of books in only three weeks. AccData was also impressed with Britni—so much so that they hired her to oversee the bookkeeping for the 24 different client companies that AccData does bookkeeping for. Today, Britni is the person that other AccData staff goes to with their bookkeeping questions. Before attending the Quick Office Admin Course, Britni was unfocused. Now, she has goals and ambition. She loves bookkeeping, enjoys coming to work every day and is glad that she can show her daughter that school enables you to realize your dreams.
