Who has the time (or money!) to leave town to attend one, two or three days of training at a time? At best, you can do this only once or twice a year, right? Instead, recent changes in technology allow you to tap into specialty seminars that we can offer via the Internet. This means that you can attend seminars in shorter, focused segments throughout the year.
Instead of getting overloaded with mind-numbing amounts of information that go into a notebook and get placed on a dusty shelf, you can learn on your own schedule, at your own pace. And then you can apply what you picked up – right away – on your home turf!
The presentation takes place right in front of you – from the comfort of your home or office, and with a clearly visible screen (no more straining to read tiny type from fuzzy projectors!)
If you’re a CAMP subscriber you’ll also receive notices of new workshops prepared specifically for you. You then see, on your computer screen, what the presenter is covering (using PowerPoint, QuickBooks, Excel, etc.). You listen via phone or headset. If you are a CAMP-VIP (Guided) subscriber, you will also be able to set a time to speak with Diane Gilson each month, in person. This means that you can privately ask any questions you may have about topics covered in any of the workshops (or you may prefer to inquire about any issue specific to your unique situation).
Have you been using QuickBooks for a long time? If so, you’ll find that Diane shares new and innovative ways to access features that you may have never explored, and that will help you to achieve mastery of this powerful package. Diane’s been working in QuickBooks for more than 25 years and continues to learn new techniques, shortcuts, and workarounds on a regular basis. This means you’ll find a variety of thought-provoking tips, techniques, workarounds, and advanced materials to keep you engaged.
Yes, indeed. Although these classes use many construction industry examples, the same principles and techniques apply to any company that wants to create job-cost reports and more useful management accounting information. The QuickBooks methodologies and concepts that Diane presents are nearly identical for job-shop manufacturing and service firms who want to track and understand job profitability (e.g., job costing, labor allocation, process-tracking, income recognition, and profit-enhancement practices).
You should be able to easily apply the construction-based concepts and examples to your specific needs.
(Note: Construction accounting is one of the more complex accounting arenas. This means that if you’re looking to implement QuickBooks or Enterprise in nearly ANY industry, it’s likely that, through these classes, you will be exposed to most of what you need – especially if you need to do job-costing.)
- As a CAMP subscriber, you’ll be able to view and/or revisit all of the workshops until you terminate your membership.
- If you purchased an individual class, you should be able to access it for at least a full year following purchase (we have no current plans to terminate access to individually purchased workshops).
If your circumstances are critical or require more in-depth exploration, Diane is also available for limited-basis consulting.
We suggest that you view this as a library of content. Even if you’ve previously watched a workshop, you may still get valuable insights the second or third time around. Why? Because we present lots of information and many ideas in each seminar. When re-visiting this kind of information it’s not unusual to pick up a variety of new material that you either overlooked the first time or was not initially applicable. However, as you grow in knowledge – that new approach may now make sense to implement.
Unlike a college or university with defined semesters, this subscription-style series is intended to be available to you on an ongoing basis. There are many layers and levels of information that continue to evolve, and certain topics generate requests for even more in-depth sessions. Your involvement and desire to learn new skills, and acquire advancing levels of expertise, will be entirely up to you…
Depending upon their interest and/or needs, subscribers can attend any of the courses shown as being available through the program.
(Please note that purchased workshops or subscriptions may NOT be used or shared by more than one company, nor are workshops or subscriptions licensed to be used for group presentation or broadcast. It is illegal to do so.)
- If you are a CAMP subscriber, you will be able to download handouts and other support materials through the CAMP portal.
- If you purchase an individual workshop, you’ll receive a document with a link to the class and handout(s).
Of course, you’re encouraged to use the handouts to take notes, because the process of note-taking helps to reinforce what you’re learning.
Diane Gilson is currently the primary instructor and/or discussion leader. Our ‘Showcase’ workshops include other presenters so that we continually add to our mix of viewpoints and topics. If you know of someone that you’d like to see included – let us know!
We believe that it’s to your benefit to have a basic understanding of what can be done with the timekeeping and payroll modules included in QuickBooks. So, you may still find some useful tips in the timekeeping and payroll class.
We suggest that you attend all of the sessions to which you are entitled. Why? Because you will likely discover various other tips, techniques, or workarounds that will assist you in other areas of your accounting or financial management functions. Additionally, even though an approach or technique may appear to not apply today, it may be useful to learn about, consider, or implement in the future.
