BAPTEC Training

Open to all Business Majors

Learn the key Excel skills necessary to prepare you for a career in Accounting!

As a future accounting or financial services professional, Excel will become a part of your everyday life. Unfortunately, some formal Accounting degree programs only include limited or ad-hoc Excel training and employers expect you to have a grasp on some of the more advanced functions of Excel when you graduate. We created BAPTEC (Beta Alpha Psi Technical Excellence Certification) to ensure that you have the opportunity to attend formal training in these essential Excel skills. Join us for the training sessions below. After you complete both training sessions you will attend a test session where you will take the BAPTEC certification test.
