For a better understanding of the concept of the accounting training, it is better to know a little about its history. Therefore, the names that stands in the forefront in the early history of accounting is Luca Pacioli, who, in 1494, was the first who described, in his book, the accounting system used by the Venetian merchants. Of course, the governments recorded information about the business operations, long before the Venetians. But Pacioli was the one who first described the system of debit and credit in journals and books that form today the base of the accounting system.
So, it can be considered that the occupation began with more than 500 years ago. But nowadays, it is said that, the accounting profession will continue to lose its credibility if it fails to educate the public and stakeholders about the value and the steps which should be followed in order to restore the confidence in the industry.
If in the past, referring to accountant represented referring to a person who was buried in papers and folders, now due to the evolution of technology, things have simplified and everything is done only by using the accounting programs. In conclusion, it can be noticed that having accounting training nowadays especially means how to operate using computer programs, but it does not mean that it is an easy thing to do.
In Dubai, for example, there are a lot of people who offer accounting training, due to the fact that in this city there are a large number of companies. And every company needs at least one accountant. A young entrepreneur may feel lost in a company when it comes to accounting, getting to make some errors that can have devastating consequences on his business. An accountant can see these mistakes and he can easily avoid a possible disaster.
