Certified Professional BookkeepersTM know that there is so much more to
responsible bookkeeping than simply knowing how to complete one task or
input data. Clients requiring the services of a bookkeeper are entrusting their most
important possession to a stranger; intimate knowledge of their business or
personal finances. Yet, most people have no way of effectively evaluating a bookkeeper. This is why the CPBTM - Certified
Professional BookkeeperTM designation is so important. The CPBTM - Certified Professional Bookkeeper CertificationTM
reflects the level of knowledge, education, and skills necessary to carry out
all key functions through Accounts Payable, Accounts Receivable, Payroll,
Sales Taxes, Inventory and general bookkeeping.
To qualify to take the CPBTM exam*, IPBC Member's must submit a letter of reference from a client or an employer, confirming they have at least 2 years of verifiable bookkeeping
experience. To register for your exam and for further information, click this link to read the Exam Registration Guidelines - Terms & Conditions.
