Course Objectives:

To train users with the necessary skills to master the use of AP & Expense Automation Software that is full integrated with a computerized accounting system.

Specifically, to use new and existing technology to become valuable to an organization.  This involves learning new skills using Windows based software such as Norming Resource Manager, A/P Invoice Requisition, Expense Requisition integrated with document attachment, and, integrated with an accounting system.  In today’s digital landscape, a user must have skills to utilize these technologies in getting the day-to-day work performed.   As well, the user must be skilled to work with an integrated platform on their daily, monthly and yearly processing routines.

All these products are mainstream and very popular in North America.  The skills acquired would prove very valuable to Mayfair Diagnostics and other employers.


Training will be provided through classroom “on-line type” sessions to participants as it relates to their job functions.  Training will be intermixed with theory and practice for each user.  Training will take place in intervals lasting 3 hours per day, 3 days per week over a period of 8 weeks.  This will ensure users have better retention of material and time to study and practice the concepts on their own time.  Concepts will be covered in greater detail to ensure the user understands all facets of the integrated program.  Real life examples and cases will be provided to enforce the concepts.

There will be formal electronic hand-outs which the user can refer to at any time after the training has been completed
