NewStart Institute's, started by Issy Rabinowitz, overall goal is to provide students with a FREE education in order to acquire the knowledge and skills necessary to enter the workforce. NewStart Institute is a web-based, education institution located in Ottawa, Canada. They offer free diploma courses in Bookkeeping and Office Management.
The programs are based on current North American Diploma programs which offer comprehensive computer training and other practical business skills training such as Accounting. A comparable diploma course cost $10,000. All programs offered by the Institute are carefully structured to correspond to similar programs and courses of study offered by leading North American institutions. The school is not accredited; but, the courses are “a foot in the door,” not a certificate to do brain surgery.
I myself supported this online school by providing approval to use any of my own bookkeeping tutorials or materials in the accounting course.
