of doing another. Several methods of estimating can be used to prepare a cost
estimate: analogous, parametric, bottom-up and top-down.

    Windows, Walls & Floors
    CEU 2.4
    From textured decorative finishes, or fabric upholstered walls to swags, tabs or jabots,
    the many choices of window and wall treatments today can be dizzying for designers
    and homeowners alike. When you add choices for floor options such as Bamboo,
    tile, wall to wall carpet or area rugs, it can be a truly daunting experience, or worse,
    a very expensive mistake. Register for this course and learn about floor finishes,
    materials and carpet quality, wallpaper, paint and faux finishes, and shutters,
    cornices and drapes.

   Space Planning & Scale
   CEU 2.4
   Most of us have had some experience with the result of poor or non-existing space
   planning – a couch that doesn’t fit through the door or a king sized mattress or large
   desk that won’t go up the staircase. Or, we have seen the devastating effects of a
   magnificent armoire that is too oversized for the room and looks ridiculous. No matter
   how perfect the piece, if it doesn’t fit into the desired location or is not the right
   scale, you have failed as a designer…and have wasted a lot of money. This course
   provides you with basic techniques to enhance and utilize any space to its best
   possible advantage.

   Lighting and Color
   CEU 2.4
   Have you ever wondered why when entering a certain space, you feel tense, happy
   or sleepy? Or be totally stumped when the color you picked looks completely
   different on your walls then it did on that sample card from the store where you
   purchased it? How about being confused about picking a color scheme? By learning
   the effects of direct, indirect, and natural light; understanding the color palette and
   how colors and patterns work with each other, you will have mastered several
   essential basics of interior design.

                  NATIONAL CERTIFICATION FOR
                    WORKING BOOKKEEPERS New
What is It?
The American Institute of Professional Bookkeepers (AIPB) has established a professional
certification, the Certified Bookkeeper (CB) credential, a high professional standard for
working bookkeepers. By successfully passing tests that cover six subjects, signing a code
of ethics and demonstrating two years’ experience in bookkeeping, you earn the right to
put “CB” after your name. The experience requirement may be completed before or after
the tests.
Why Should You Become Certified by the American Institute of Professional Bookkeepers?
National Certification distinguishes you from other bookkeepers because it proves that you
have met high national standards and demonstrated the ability to handle all the books for
a company of up to 100 employees. Becoming a Certified AIPB Bookkeeper can increase
your earning potential and give you an edge in the job market. The U.S. Bureau of Labor
Statistics says that Certified Bookkeepers “will have the best job prospects.” A 2005
survey of CBs by Lewis & Clark, Raleigh, NC, showed that 41% got a promotion or new job
because they were certified, 32% got a raise and 97% of Certified Bookkeepers recommend
certification to other bookkeepers. Certified Bookkeepers are recognized as highly trained
Professionals. Prerequisites: Students must have experience working as a professional
bookkeeper.
What is the Cost of the Program?
$999 due at the time of registration. $210 Pro-metric fee for certification exam.
Textbook required, six workbooks are required and are available at the College bookstore
at an approximate cost of $225.

                         – Diversity Training –
DIVERSITY: Mistakenly, people often relate diversity simply to race. Diversity covers everything
from ethnic and religious backgrounds to diversity of ideas and communication styles. Better
understanding of the people we work with and our customer base is critical to a company’s success.
This workshop will look at what diversity is, the role it plays in your business, the importance of
awareness, recognition, and acceptance of those with whom we interact on the job. It will look at
the language we use and the stereotypes we have that may be destructive in our interactions. It also
could cover, depending on your needs, the leader’s role in modeling positive behavior.
