What Graduates Say

The knowledge I have gained from the courses in the DFA - Bookkeeping Services Specialist Program has made it possible to give my clients service far above that of a regular bookkeeper. The step up to managerial concepts and advising capabilities has made me more valuable to my clients and allowed my business to grow through referrals. As an instructor for accounting and office technologies at a local community college, the knowledge I have gained has greatly enhanced my teaching and allows me to delve deeper into topics brought up by students. Overall, receiving this designation has allowed me to provide much better service to my clients, and in turn, my clients receive the advice and information they need to make informed business decisions.
