GPA Solutions have been delivering QQI business awards in Mayo since 2004. Since opening their training centre in Castlebar earlier this year, they have continued to roll out QQI accredited courses to successful learners. This autumn sees the start of two courses, their successful four day Payroll Skills award and Sage 50 Bookkeeping award. Both courses are ideal for those wishing to gain an introduction to payroll and bookkeeping, or alternatively those wishing to upskill with their existing knowledge.
The QQI Level 5 Payroll Skills course will commence on September 28, over four days one day a week. Learners will acquire a thorough knowledge of basic PAYE computations to include the cumulative, week one and emergency tax basis. Learners will learn and understand PRSI and USC computations, how to deal with starters and leavers, file revenue forms and year end procedures in both a manual and computerised context.
A Sage 50 accounts course will run for five days over five weeks, commencing October 7 in Galway. Learners will experience setting up a company, entering source documents in the various day book and preparing debtors and creditors balances and reports. Learners will learn to produce VAT reports, bank reconciliation, and monthly profit and loss and balance sheet reports. Both courses are delivered through lectures, case studies to resemble a real business scenario, group discussion and assignments. Online support is also available to learners.
