I'm a Software Quality Analyst and had recently switched job into an accounting software company. My job is to seek out not just software problems but also faults with a process that may have led to those problems. As a QA working in accounting software company, I needed to learn the various accounting techniques and logic behind them in order to succeed in my job. Unfortunately, I have no prior experience with accounting. But your course lifted the cloud that has kept me from having the confidence that I needed to succeed. The program explains all the relevant details that make the difference when you need to understand the complexity of accounting systems. I recommend it to anyone trying to understand the basics of accounting and its applications in the real world.

Roots has organized fantastic training workshops for our staff to improve our accounting skills, which they find very interesting and enjoyable. The introductory simple beginning sessions of the workshop provided a sound reference base which reinforced more complex accounting exercises later in the day and therefore did not lose the interest of the participants. We wish them continued success in all their undertaking and look forward to work with them in the future.
Although I've been working in an accounting office for several years, my understanding of debits and credits was sorely lacking. It was like memorizing a system of 'dos and don'ts' without any understanding of why and how it works. This program has made a world of difference in my understanding of the accounting concepts. It helped me to understand how accounting is done, starting from debits and credits all the way to more complex accounting matters. I am now able to actually understand why 'things' happen in such and such a way in accounting. Words can't describe the magnitude of difference this program has brought in my career.
I have worked as an accountant for more than three years and I now realize I did not have a clear understanding of the reasons for the entries I was making until I took this workshop. In just one day I am learning the basics of accounting that used to sound like a foreign language to me. By the end of the day I was able to read and understand the company’s financial statements. It was presented in a manner that is outside the normal accounting box.
I graduated with a commerce degree in 2013 and worked for five years as an Assistant Manager Finance & Accounts. I found myself taking on a new position in the office with my current employer that was going to dive into cost accounting which is something that I haven't really dealt with in my professional career. I started looking for some cost accounting courses as most of my professional work has been in Financial Accounting and other areas where I don't apply cost accounting skills regularly, but found nothing helpful. With the help of this program, I finally feel like I understand the basic underpinnings of the cost accounting system. I love how you use ‘real world’ examples with numbers to help me understand the concept.
ASSISTANT MANAGER COSTING
It has been 7 years since I graduated from college in commerce, but I never had the chance to practice my accounting skills at this level. I spent most of my career in sales and did not use my accounting knowledge on a daily basis. I needed help re-freshening myself in the accounting field and this training has been a great help in this area. The way it explains various accounting concepts in such a simple and self-explanatory manner is really commendable.
ASSISTANT MANAGER FP&A
I am an IT professional and was given a job to develop a financial management system. With no prior accounting or business background, I was often lost in meetings with FICO staff when they use accounting terms. I've spent lots of money on well-reviewed books on different areas of accounting, but I ended up repeatedly confused by what seemed like conflicting information. I enrolled into this program and it has helped me overcome the accounting jargon and understand what goes where, when and why. I managed to develop a system with all requirements from trial balance, income statement, bank reconciliation, financial position. I wish to give my regards to its management who have developed and explained the concepts in such a manner that even a non-financial background person can understand.
We have been using services from Roots for more than three years now and have been very much satisfied with the same. They work very closely with us to ensure that the course content meets our needs. The education given in this two-day workshop is invaluable to anyone who seeks it. This workshop has the advantage of showing how accounting works visually. We all tend to see problems and relationships more easily visually, so this approach takes advantage of how we learn most effectively. As such, I believe that it is of value to anyone who is interested in understanding how accounting works.
We wanted to re-energize our FICO team, reminding them how to make financial operations more efficient and learn some new skills along the way. We enlisted the support of Roots who took the time to understand our requirements, build our brief and deliver a great training session. It was apparent that the delivery of the workshop was enlightening to all who attended regardless of the level of accounting knowledge they had beforehand. The team all gave feedback on how much they enjoyed the training and almost all took something away to implement. I have no hesitation in recommending the training and we look forward to continued association.
I am a Business Analyst and recently encountered a critical financial project. Having an undergraduate degree in engineering, I was an alien to the world of accounting and finance. I have tried many different books on accounting before attending the workshop, but only this program managed to convey information in such a way that a person with zero previous knowledge or experience on the subject was able to finally understand the accounting concepts. You made accounting interesting and fun to learn with instant feedback and easy to understand explanations. I love the simplicity of the information, much better than many textbooks.
Right after graduating from college and getting my bachelor's degree in commerce, I didn't manage to land a job in the accounting field, instead I got a job as Purchase Executive. After three years my employer shifted me to accounts office and appointed me as Assistant Manager - Business Finance. Unfortunately, I wasn't feeling very confident in my ability and knowledge in accounting because there was a particularly long lapse of time where I wasn't exposed to accounting. This training not only helped me brush up on my knowledge, but has helped me pinpoint my strengths and weaknesses which allowed me to focus on those areas that I was lacking knowledge. Without any doubts, I would recommend it to anyone who wants to learn or understand accounting in a simple and easy manner & also to accounting professionals who want to upgrade their knowledge and improve their professional skills.
ASSISTANT MANAGER FINANCE
Roots delivered a number of workshops for us, and I can honestly say that they were amongst the most highly attended and well received training events that we held. Accounting staff participating in the training remain engaged and enthusiastic throughout the session which is due to the practical nature of the course. Not only was the level of understanding of those with little understanding of accounting concepts raised considerably, but also a new way of imparting accounting knowledge to others has been discovered.
FINANCIAL CONTROLS MANAGER
I am working as an accounts executive for a small company and I have a bachelor's degree in business administration. I took basic accounting classes in college, but nothing that could help me prepare financial statements. I have been confused by the terms debit and credit, and due to that, the whole double-entry system for years. Your workshop has helped me to understand how debit and credit works, how balance sheet and income statement complimented each other, what the cash flow statement is and how to create one. If you are looking for clarity and straight-to-the-point explanations of the accounting processes, then please attend this workshop once. I would recommend it to anyone interested in full comprehension of accounting concepts.
I've started a small business and while making a business plan Roots has helped me to understand the accounting process big time. The workshop has helped me tremendously in understanding the basics of financial management. It demonstrates how to read and understand key elements of financial statements and reports, such as balance sheets, income statements and cash flow statements. It was a great introduction, not just to 'accounting' but also to a lot of essential business skills.
As a Credit and Collection Analyst my job is to review the financial histories of individuals and companies to help determine their creditworthiness and how likely they are to repay their debts. I need to apply accounting principles in providing a professional interpretation of a client’s financial statements. This workshop is the ideal way to acquire analytical skills needed for credit analysis. I can definitely recommend this program if you need to read and interpret financial statements for business diagnosis and decision-making.
Our company uses the training as a tool for our new accounting staff who had just got new accounts jobs. We feel that participation in the training has improved performance among employees, and enabled them to practice accounting best practices in their everyday work. This program must form part of the standard induction training of any accountant employed by the company. Thank you for all the time and work that you have put into working with our staff who participated in your program.
FINANCIAL CONTROLS MANAGER
I am working as an accountant for a small company. I am the only accounting person in my office, so everything falls on my shoulders for the company. I have never been in a position where I was responsible for all of the finances for a company. It makes me uneasy, but the workshop has helped me in my job in reformatting and structuring financial statements to bring it in line with Indian Accounting Standards. I was recommended to take this course by a friend and I would do the same. Thank you for this significant contribution to the profession.
For managers and senior professionals, it is especially critical to have a high level of financial literacy and use financial knowledge to make informed business decisions, which this training provides. The workshop lasted a day and it was a most impressive demonstration to make accounting understandable and dramatically improve financial literacy in a very short period of time. Great workshop! Very visual which is very encouraging to understand accounting and not as scary as you would imagine.
