Allen Bostrom, president and CEO of Universal Accounting, explains, "More and more students are requesting the convenience and commonsense value of online training. It's really a `classroom-on-the-go' solution for education in the 21st Century."
Universal's online training programs can be accessed at http://www.uacourses.com/ and include the following courses:
Dental Bookkeeping Made Easy trains students in the specific application of accounting principles to the lucrative and growing field of dentistry.
Through the Professional Bookkeeper Program, students master small-business accounting, a niche market where over 80% of accounting opportunities reside.
The Professional Bookkeeper's Guide to QuickBooks exposes students to all the features and shortcuts of the most popular accounting software on the market, enabling graduates to increase their service offers and/or employable skills.
The Professional Tax Preparer Program, a QAS (Quality Assurance Service) sponsored self-study course, trains students in the successful completion of individual and business returns while also enabling them to earn valuable CPE credits.
Graduates use the Universal Practice Builder Program to better promote their services and secure quality clients so that they can build more lucrative accounting and/or tax practices.

The same stellar instructional materials that have blessed the lives of tens of thousands of graduates are now available in an electronic format. UAC will still produce hardcopy versions of their training programs, but, as Jeff Stone, Universal's IT Manager, explains, "We are minimizing our impact on the environment by printing fewer books, creating fewer DVDs and eliminating most of the shipping while still providing [students] with the high quality training Universal is known for."
Universal has been waiting for the perfect time to launch their online training. Bostrom says, "The streaming technology has finally reached the point that Universal's video-based training can reach out to anyone in the world. Couple that with the accessibility of high-speed Internet, and it's the perfect time for us to transition away from the bulky DVD and workbook courses to the environmentally friendly, and easy-to-use instantaneous access of online training."
