Bookkeeper Certification. Becoming a Certified Bookkeeper (CB) gives you the right to put CB after your name. CBs are to bookkeeping what CPAs are to accounting—the cream of the profession. A national survey reveals that certification gave CBs “new knowledge,” “professional pride,” professional “respect” and an “enhanced self-image.” A large number of CBs got a new job or a promotion, or received raises. Freelancers used certification to attract new clients and to raise their rates.
