This QuickBooks Online tutorial for beginners teaches small business owners and bookkeepers how to use all QBO’s essential tools and workflows to track its income and expenses for taxes and business success.

"Hands down, the most comprehensive QuickBooks Online course out there; great for beginners and certification seekers!" - Hector Garcia CPA

Basic Training, often known as, “bootcamp”, is an introduction to the Army, and where recruits learn the traditions, tactics and methods of becoming a soldier.

And much like U.S. Army Bootcamp, my QuickBooks Online Bootcamp requires courage, discipline, and a hunger for excellence. 

It's hard work…but it doesn’t require sacrifice!

Unlike U.S. Army Bootcamp, in my QBO Bootcamp I will encourage you instead of yell at you, hold your hand instead of force you to march, and you DEFINITELY won’t have to clean your privy with your toothbrush.

When we're through, you will have the QBO skills to solve any problem, conquer any transaction, silence your doubts, and tackle any task.

You will become a pillar of bookkeeping excellence, capable of handling whatever is thrown your way with strength, dignity, and grace.


Intuit's QuickBooks Online (QBO) is the number one accounting software with millions of customers. It is both extremely useful and easy to use...once you learn how.

If you are a small business owner or bookkeeper that has never used QuickBooks Online, you need to take this course.

And it's best to learn the essentials from a Top 10 ProAdvisor so that you get set up properly, from the beginning! And who puts the "fun" in fundamentals more than QBO Rockstar Alicia Katz Pollock!

Alicia has designed this QBO Bootcamp course to be approachable and absorbable so you gain a solid understanding of how QuickBooks software works. With easy to follow step-by-step guidance, Alicia will cover everything you need to quickly get up and running.

By the end of this course, you will have learned how to easily manage your company's daily workflow using QuickBooks Online and be able to run insightful reports to analyze growth.
