The National Association of Certified Public Bookkeepers (nacpb.org)

  • protects the public interest by helping to ensure only qualified individuals provide public bookkeeping services and
  • assures the public that members are trusted and competent bookkeepers.
NACPB uses a two level program to accomplish their mission. The two levels of assurance are:
  1. Certification–which assures the public that you have knowledge and skills. You obtain the certification by passing a uniform examination which is open book.
  2. Licensing–which assures the public that you have not only knowledge and skills, but also experience and ethics. You obtain the license by completing the license application after passing the certification exam.  You must have at least one year of bookkeeping or accounting experience and agree to abide by the NACPB Code of Professional Conduct.
