“Simply Training came to me on the recommendation of an accounting firm and one of its employees who was completely new to bookkeeping. Their recommendation was based on both course material and instructor accessibility, knowledge, and willingness. They were confident these courses provide all the A to Z training a person needs to be successful in the workplace regardless of their experience.

Simply Training lived up to the recommendation and the promises on its website. I have over 20 years of bookkeeping experience and I am absolutely comfortable recommending the courses to anyone who is starting a new career or who would like certification to back up their experience.”

Accounting Fundamentals

I thought you might like to know that this course prepared me very well for an interview I had this week. I registered with a recruiting agency and they congratulated me on how well I had done on the bookkeeping test they administer. I was very pleased, as I have no formal bookkeeping experience. I have to give credit to this course for helping me do well on the test.
Kate of Halifax, NS, Completed Accounting Fundamentals

The Accounting Fundamentals Course was very helpful as I was thrown into a bookkeeping position after our office accountant passed away unexpectedly. The sections I learned were all very relevant and I will definitely take the Sage 50 Level 1 Course. Thanks very much I would definitely recommend your courses.

Lee of Port Colborne, ON, Completed Accounting Fundamentals Course

It has been a pleasure working with you to achieve my goal of refreshing my knowledge and skills in the fundamentals of accounting. This course was easily explained and the exercises helped to give a great understanding of all concepts. I enjoyed it and I think it is a great course for anyone who has no accounting knowledge or someone like me, who wanted to refresh their knowledge.

Martina of Fort McMurray, AB, Completed Accounting Fundamentals

I chose the Accounting Fundamentals Course as I reviewed many courses at a post-secondary college and a few others online. I am very happy to have made the right choice. This course has given me more than what I had hoped for. I have learned a great deal. I have done my own bookkeeping for the past 15 years in Sage 50, but never had a “TRUE” understanding of everything I was doing on the computer as the software does it for me, so to speak. This course is so well taught, thank you for that.

Lori of Saskatoon, SK, Completed Accounting Fundamentals Course

Thank you so much for this Accounting Fundamentals Course. Nowhere have I found such clear instruction on basic accounting and for such a reasonable price and it was also great to have this available online for me to learn at my own pace. I also found that it was very beneficial to have the Canadian content since many accounting courses are geared towards a US audience. Once again, thank you so much. I will recommend your training to others.

All Inclusive Bookkeeping

I’ve completed the exercises required for the All-inclusive Bookkeeping Course and will be submitting my course hours for Professional Development Credits and for employment purposes. I found the course materials and videos to be highly educational and having them on demand to use as an opportunity to refresh my knowledge on topics.

Darius of Calgary, AB, Completed the All-inclusive Bookkeeping Course

I am really glad I took the All-inclusive Bookkeeping Course; it was definitely the right choice. The knowledge I have gained from taking this course, has given me the confidence and skills to take over most of the bookkeeping duties for our business. Thank you so much.

Lynda of Armstrong, BC, Completed the All-inclusive Bookkeeping Course

I just wanted to let you know that I have taken several online courses. By far the All-Inclusive Bookkeeping Course was the most in-depth and interactive set of courses I have ever taken. Your knowledge and dedication to your students is outstanding, thank you.

Carol of Edmonton, AB, Completed the All-inclusive Bookkeeping Course

I have enjoyed the courses and would certainly recommend it for anyone looking to learn more about Sage 50 Accounting. I have been working with the program for many years and had no idea it was capable of so many functions. I am excited to apply my new knowledge to our company as it continues to grow. Thank you so much for all your assistance and guidance. I appreciate your quick replies as it really helped me keep on track and move through the lessons quickly and smoothly with confidence.

Lisa of Kingston, ON, Completed the All-inclusive Bookkeeping Course

Thanks for letting me know my errors so promptly. Once again, I am really enjoying this course so far. I attended a bookkeeping course at a local college a while ago and this online course is far superior – in my opinion – I’m so glad I signed up for it as it’s helped me make sense of things, which I didn’t feel when I completed the bookkeeping course elsewhere.

Trudy of Nanoose Bay, BC, Completed the All-inclusive Bookkeeping Course

I’m writing to you to thank you for your help. You are an excellent teacher and I’m inspired to continue learning with an open and positive mind. I appreciate all your hard work. As newcomer in Canada and have French as my second language these were my first courses in Canada. The dream begins with a teacher who believes in students, who tugs and pushes and leads me to the next stage, and you are. The schedules for me were very perfect and you have good teaching skills to learn from, so thank you. This training has given me the skills and the opportunity to apply for my job career. I have no good ideas to show my appreciation and recognition for you, there is nothing more valuable than a few words of gratitude to show my heart. Wishing you the will to keep teaching other people.

Roger of Surrey, BC, Completed the All-inclusive Bookkeeping Course

Thank-you for such a great learning experience. We started our own business and my part is the Bookkeeping. I didn’t have a lot of experience with accounting, but I knew I needed to learn Sage 50 Accounting, so I signed up for your courses. In my opinion the Accounting Fundamentals Course is a must! Understanding how accounting works really made everything make sense. You need to learn to walk before you run. The course was challenging, informative and didn’t allow you to breeze through it like other online courses. This course actually makes you do the work so you learn the subject. Thanks again!

Nancy of Lochaber, NS, Completed the All-inclusive Bookkeeping Course

I completed courses with Simply Training and I highly recommend them to anyone who wants to understand accounting terminology, principles and concepts and also to learn the Sage 50 Accounting Program for their business. I liked the convenience of working at my own pace, and the support I received from the instructor when I had questions. These courses have been the best investment I ever made in taking control of my own company!

Dave S. of Vernon, BC, Completed the All-inclusive Bookkeeping Course

I really enjoyed this course. It gave me the tools and skills needed to make me confident in having my own bookkeeping company. Take care and thank you for your quick replies and always being available.

Jackie of Fort St. John, BC, Completed the All-inclusive Bookkeeping Course

I was promoted in my job from Admin to Bookkeeper and the Accounting Fundamentals Course helped me so much. Thank You!

Lisa of Edmonton, AB, Completed the All-inclusive Bookkeeping Course

I’ve been in the education system for 35 years in French School Boards and I also taught at Ottawa University. For me, the explicit instruction approach that these courses offer was more than a sufficient opportunity to assimilate the material. That effective instruction aided me to generalize newly taught knowledge/skills in a context that is greater than a single lesson. The lessons were well-designed and planned … clear instructional objectives. Every lesson built on past knowledge to increase fluency and maintaining the mastery of the material. Even with lessons to complex issues you provided me with a deeper clarity and meaning… the how and the why – behind the scene questions were answered. The effectiveness of your instruction and with your quality of instructional delivery was the key to align the skill level that enables me to experience success and to keep me wanting more. Just to tell you that I’ve enjoyed the courses and very impressed with the delivery of the courses. Is there any other course I could take?

Diane of Gatineau, QC, Completed the All-inclusive Bookkeeping Course

Thanks a million! It was fun to do these courses and I can tell you going back to school has paid off!!! I found a job in an Accounting Firm and I start in January, I’m so excited and happy, thank you.

Martha of Windsor, ON, Completed the All-inclusive Bookkeeping Course

I have enjoyed the courses and feel I now have a good working knowledge of Sage 50 Accounting. The combination of the videos and the hands-on exercises provided a great learning experience. I have been working in the accounting/bookkeeping field for over 30 years, along with my diploma in accounting; completion of this course has enhanced my skill set.

Jo-Anne of Hamilton, ON, Completed the All-inclusive Bookkeeping Course

I think it should be said that coming from someone with zero accounting background this course is top notch!!! It is so well laid out and presented. I really appreciate the set up for success that it presents and the confidence that it instills. I will be highly recommending it to anyone and everyone that I can as I do feel that this truly is the way to go if you’re looking to learn these skills. Thank you again for all of your support!

Becky of Arthur, ON, Completed the All-inclusive Bookkeeping Course

Sage 50 Levels 1 and 2

This course was perfect for me. I work for a fairly new company and the database had been set up by an external accountant. It was set up very basic and being a new user and having no previous A/P, A/R experience, I was shown just the basics of entering in purchased items etc., and creating payroll cheques. Now, after completing this training things make more sense and I feel confident in my abilities to expand on what had been previously done and perform reconciliations and balances. I did the last month balances myself and impressed the accountant and my boss. Yeah me!!! You made me look good. Looking forward to the next level.

Kristy S. of Victoria, BC, Completed the Sage 50 Accounting Level 1 Course

I have found this training extraordinary. I am enjoying it a lot, as well as working very hard to take in the information. It is quite comprehensive and has reminded me of some accounting terms that I have not used for a long time, and it flows naturally through the different modules. The Sage 50 software is just amazing, makes the work easier and has so few steps to follow once the settings are arranged according with the needs of your company. I am going to start a new job next week and will be using this software.

Kathy C. of Ottawa, ON, Completed the Sage 50 Accounting Level 1 Course

The Sage 50 Accounting Level 1 Course was very thorough and easy to understand. I have an administrative background but no accounting experience, however, I was able to complete the course with ease. The video tutorial thoroughly explains concepts and methods in an easy-to-understand manner. There is much support with the video tutorials, exercises and textbook (which I still reference from time to time). The 6-month access to the course online allowed me to learn at my own pace but still run our company at the same time. We wanted to update our bookkeeping system to become more efficient for our business and with Simply Training’s support, with did just that! We purchased their Support Package and – well and it was worth every penny. Sue helped us modify our invoicing system, reports, allowed us to print our own T4s (without the cost of an accountant!) and made payroll a dream (it now takes less than 5 minutes to complete and is done in house). The many “tips and tricks” have allowed us to become more focused, productive and efficient! One final note, Sue’s knowledge is extremely vast. I discovered an error with our bookkeeping and called our accountant to inquire how to fix it. Our accountant was unsure of how to fix the problem. Frustrated, I called Sue and sure enough, she knew exactly what to do!!

Mia W. of Kitchener, ON, Completed the Sage 50 Accounting Level 1 Course

I used to use MYOB for my own business books, but when I took over my husband’s books, our accountant uses Sage 50 Accounting so I switched. I knew I wasn’t doing everything correctly and I found out that was true by taking this course! I’m so glad I took it as taking this course was far more effective and I learned about things I never would have known about. Bottom line, I really enjoyed the course and the exercises were very good in learning the content covered in the videos. I repeated the exercises to set up my husband’s new company and after one month, everything is perfect! Thank you.

Allison of Winnipeg, MB, Completed the Sage 50 Accounting Level 1 Course

I thought you might like to know that this course prepared me very well for an interview I had this week. I registered with a recruiting agency and they congratulated me on how well I had done on the bookkeeping test they administer. I was very pleased, as I have no formal bookkeeping experience. I have to give credit to this course for helping me do well on the test.

Kate of Halifax, NS, Completed the Sage 50 Accounting Level 1 Course

I liked the combination of learning methods; reading material (text book), watching the video tutorials, and hands on learning by doing the exercises in the Sage 50 Accounting Program. I’m interested in the more Bookkeeping Courses you offer, when they become available, please let me know.

Paul V., Completed Sage 50 Level 2 Course

I am one who prefers self-study to classroom study, so this online course suited me well. I actually was amazed how readily I picked up on using the software as I am not a computer genius; therefore, you are doing something right in the way you train people. I give this course an “A”. Thank you again for your patience and prompt replies; the quick feedback is invaluable for the professionals who take this course.

Barbara E. of Notre Dame, QC, Completed the Sage 50 Accounting Level 1 Course

Sage 50 Full Course

I want to thank Simply Training for a very finely detailed course. It is exactly what I was looking for. You have done a great job putting this together and I will be sure to pass on your information to others for these courses. I did an Introductory to Basic Bookkeeping a while back but wanted to learn more in Accounting without having to pay huge $$ to go to NBC College and these courses have given me that. I really enjoyed doing the work and learning Sage 50 Accounting. I look forward to getting started on the Sage 50 Level 2 very soon. Thank you!!

Stella G. of Saint John, NB, Completed Sage 50 Level 1 and 2 Courses

I have to say that I have enjoyed the Sage 50 Accounting Courses so much and love the video training you do because it truly helps understand everything so clearly. I am thrilled to have been able to complete the Courses as quickly as I have… I seriously thought it would take me much longer, but I was very dedicated to do this every moment I had free after work and on weekends to complete it. Thanks for all your help throughout the courses.

Joanne of Elliot Lake, ON, Completed Sage 50 Accounting Level 1 & 2 Courses

I’ve been using Sage 50 Accounting for the better part of 14+ years. I was still able to learn some tricks in these training courses. One of my company’s enrolled me in the courses to better assist our franchisees, as Sage 50 is the accounting program we recommend to all our new and existing franchisees. I especially liked a few “tricks” that were recommended, so simple and yet I completely missed them when using the program. I self-taught myself, and loved leaning the account reconciliation, I have always done them manually and now switched to the Reconciliation within Sage 50. So, the old saying stands true – you learn something new every day!!! I’m thrilled to have completed both levels… kudos for a great learning experience!

Fay S. of Calgary, AB, Completed Sage 50 Accounting Level 1 & 2 Courses

I found the Sage 50 Accounting Level 1 course pretty useful. I’m a public practice Accountant switching to an internal accounting position and felt it would be wise to brush up on my Sage50 Accounting knowledge. The course definitely taught me a lot that I didn’t know before. Looking forward to the Sage 50 Level 2 Course.

Mike of Vancouver, BC, Completed Sage 50 Accounting Full Course

My boss signed me up for this course. I would definitely take another online course with you – I liked everything about it. This course helped me in my present job and of course would be very helpful in any future jobs. The course was put together very well and easy to understand and follow. The instructor was excellent and helped me with all questions. I would highly recommend it to everyone.

Diane of Northwest Territories

Being one of many accountants in a large corporation, I did not get the opportunity to participate in all areas of the accounting cycle and processes. Your courses filled in a lot of the gaps in my technical understanding of the accounting software (Sage 50 Accounting) and full cycle accounting, which I know will be beneficial as I transition to a small to medium sized organization where they have one accountant that is expected to do everything. Thank You.

Sean of Squamish, BC, Completed Sage 50 Accounting Full Course

I heard about this course from a friend and wanted to learn more about Sage 50 and to be more efficient when using it. I would advise anyone wishing to increase or review their knowledge about Sage 50 to take this course and to take as many courses offered by Simply Training. It was very informative, well presented and it was great getting the support documents, links and explanations. The instructor was very knowledgeable and made each lesson clear to understand and took the time to explain when you had a problem or a question. There wasn’t anything I didn’t like about the course.

Vi of British Columbia

Basic Bookkeeping

I completed the Accounting Fundamentals and Sage 50 Level 1 Courses, and since then I have setup and organized our small company in Sage 50 Accounting. Now that I am familiar with Sage 50, I prefer it to the QuickBooks system that I was previously using. Thanks for your excellent lessons and training, they have been really helpful. When I am unsure of what to do, I just go back to the materials and find the answer. Thank you!

Gina of Nestow, AB, Completed Basic Bookkeeping Course

This course was very good, I really enjoyed it. It helped me to refresh my knowledge of my previous education in Accounting, and it corrected some wrong information I have gotten. It also helped me to learn English Accounting terminologies as I was educated in another language.

Lina of Oakville, ON, Completed Basic Bookkeeping Course

Microsoft Excel

The way I used the course was to listen to the video, read the material per lesson, then do the exercise and quiz. I found that this way if any concepts I did not quite fully understand after the video – reading the material helped to clarify. If I needed clarification, it was great to be able to reach to the instructor to ask questions. I also like taking courses online as it eliminates my travel time to and from a location and I can fit it into my busy life and schedule. I found the material and videos were both well done. Thanks Alan for being my instructor.

Nancy of Calgary, AB, Completed the Excel 101 Course

I loved the videos as it made following the course easy. I left the audio in the background allowing me to refer to the video while working in the “let’s try it” exercises. I found the course easy to follow and provided the information to allow me do the lessons and yet challenged me to think. I had a very basic knowledge of Excel and truthfully found it intimidating, thanks to the step by step walk through I am excited about learning more and implementing what I have learned in the course to benefit me in my own business. I found Alan to be encouraging and supportive and his response time to handed in material was excellent.

Carol of Comox, BC, Completed the Excel 101 Course

I really enjoyed this course, it touched a little on everything without being overwhelming. I have previously taken an in depth spreadsheet class in college a couple years ago and this was an excellent way to refresh my memory. This course also highlighted things that’s mostly used in an every day job situation. I am looking forward to your next course and learning more.

Melinda of Port Alberni, BC, Completed the Excel 101 Course

I liked how this Excel 101 Course broke everything down step by step; liked the ‘let’s try this’ exercises and the videos matched the lessons. I enjoyed the final Assignment as we put what we learned into practice.

Tammy of Whitehorse, YT, Completed the Excel 101 Course

Support

When a payroll problem came up in a client’s books, I call Sue for support. Having taking Simply Training courses, I knew she was the “go to” person when it came to problems in Sage 50. She was able to remote to my computer and quickly fix the problem. Sue’s contact information is a must to add to your tool box. Resources like this are hard to come by.

Margaret of Kitchener, ON, Tax Consultant

I have had the pleasure of attending seminars that Sue du Puy has instructed on two different occasions now and have learned a lot. She is very pleasant, energetic and focused on providing the answer to any questions about the topic at hand. She has a variety of experience to draw on that allows her to present information in a relevant manner to each attendee. She is a skilled and animated speaker who can hold the attention even on un-exciting topics. If the opportunity to attend one of her sessions becomes available in the future, I would make every effort to attend. I have no reservations about recommending her to present at any level. To Sue, thank you for sharing your passion, clarity, and knowledge.

Kevin Lamming, CPB Office Manager / Certified Professional Bookkeeper

I had the wonderful opportunity to train with Sue du Puy for the online courses. She is an exceptional trainer and coach. She guided me through my problematic issues in Sage 50 that my own online support could not do. Her clear, concise training was so helpful to me that I have trained my own staff in the way I was taught by her. Sue du Puy has played an important role in my company and knowing I have the support from her helps me run my business more efficiently and effectively. Not only is she advanced in accounting software, her knowledge in accounting is far above average. I am very grateful for her help and support and strongly recommend her training and support on all levels.
