Certified Bookkeeper NC III

15 Apr

One of my close and trusted friends, based in Butuan City is now a Certified Bookkeeper NC III. Yahoo, Congratulations Ngit! (I call him Ngit and vice-versa). He graduated BS in Management Accounting at Father Saturnino Urios University. He only needed 1 year to get the Accountancy degree for him to be able to take the CPA Exam. I don’t know why he didn’t pursue it. He was our bookkeeper at school during my STI days so I can say his experience in Bookkeeping field is quite extensive. No wonder, he perfected the Bookkeeping exam administered by TESDA last March 29th and 1 of the only 4 among the examinees who passed and get certified even without doing a review! It was the National Free Competency Assessment and Certification Exam. He grabbed the opportunity to take it for free.

According to Myckle, the exam covers the entire cycle of Bookkeeping. If you plan to take this certification make sure you master the ff:

  • Journalizing of Accounts
  • Ledger
  • Trial Balance
  • Income Statement
  • Balance Sheet
  • Equity Statement
  • Cash Flow
  • Post Trial Balance
The score to pass it must be a perfect score. Imagine that! A wrong entry at the beginning will render the entire work wrong losing the chance of getting that Certified Bookkeeper title. I don’t know though if this passing rate is the standard  one across all the TESDA centers nationwide.

Congrats again Ngit! My turn next! Hopefully 🙂

To take the Bookkeeping NC III Exam, please read my previous post.

    • Precious West June 13, 2011 at 5:30 pm #

      It looks like there is no free national competency exam similar to what took place last March.

      But yes there are still exams. Just contact TESDA near you to inquire.

    Hi! I’m currently thinking about taking a bookkeeping course. I was wondering if you have any schools that you might be able to recommend. Kakaunti lang ang nakikita ko sa net, at medyo mahal ang prices nila. Gusto ko sana yung medyo affordable, pero sulit pa rin. Ayun! Thanks!

    Hi, I have taken and passed the NC III last January 2014. You only need to master the Whole Accounting Cycle plus a knowledge on Internal Audit Control and that’s it..get ready for your next turn,Good luck to all!

  24. remedios manahan francisco December 2, 2014 at 6:33 am #

    i am one of the dpet. head who is implementing abot alam here at Marcelo H. del Pilar National High School. i have sent teachers and students at TESDA assessment center and many of them passed the NC.
    May i take this opportunity to ask how we can apply for NATCAC so that our students could be benefited as far as i know NATCAC will help them sustain financial problem in taking the NC.
