I wouldn’t have believed it was possible to become a working accountant without a formal degree. I began working as a freelance accountant after studying with BOLC and could not be any happier with the progress I’ve made.
The course I took with BOLC helped me earn a promotion in the office I’d been with for several years. So instead of just being part of the back-office accounts team, I’m now in charge of the team!
