This five-week course is offered entirely online. The instructor will hold weekly office hours to answer questions about the material you’ll be covering. Offered in partnership with Franklin Regional Council of Governments (FRCOG), the cost of this program for all participants will be fully covered by a grant.  A prior knowledge of accounting is useful.  This course is not-for-credit, but those who complete the course will be awarded a Certificate of Completion from Greenfield Community College.
