This class will provide you with the knowledge that tribal finance officers and accountants need, from preparing year-end adjusting and closing entries to preparing audit schedules and reporting requirements under GASB 34. You'll gain practical hands-on knowledge through both comprehensive practice sets and in-class discussions.
