I know that various community colleges offer accounting classes, but they never seem to explain how their curriculum compares to the CPA requirements, if at all. I also know that many 4-year colleges have accounting programs, usually generously diluted with liberal arts classes and the lackadaisical college attitude. Then there are online colleges that tend towards the even more lackadaisical and the employees of the organization have prominent dollar signs in the eyes.
Well, so are there intensive, “full immersion” if you will, programs that would take in newbies and graduate people who have a good shot to pass the exam? Let’s say 8-10 hours of work every day, no-nonsense attitude, regular quizzes and tests, final exam that feels a lot like the real CPA exam and so forth. Sort of like army bootcamp - you sign up and either you get taken out on a stretcher to convalesce or else you graduate in a reasonable amount of time having mastered precisely those skills that you were supposed to master.
