Back To Top

If you’re looking for good pay and career stability, then payroll administration training might be your path to career satisfaction. According to Service Canada, payroll administrators are in demand in Ontario. In Toronto, employment outlook for payroll professionals is rated a top three out of three stars. In the Kitchener, Waterloo, and Barrie Region, employment outlook for payroll professionals also has a top three star rating. And in Ottawa, a two-star rating still indicates that there’s plenty of demand for new graduates with payroll administrator training.
Why are payroll professionals so valued by companies across the province? Part of the reason is that they develop many in-demand skills during their training. Here’s a look at what those skills are, and how the right adult education program can help you tap into this rewarding career path.

1. Adult Learners Learn Bookkeeping Skills in their Payroll Administration Courses

Across the province, companies big and small need payroll and accounting clerks to help with many of their daily bookkeeping tasks. From double entry bookkeeping to posting to the general ledger, professionals with payroll administration training are a vital part of any company. That’s why to help you prepare for this role, top adult education programs teach you everything you need to know about accounts payable, accounts receivable, and payroll.

Adult learners develop the bookkeeping skills they need to succeed

At colleges like Academy of Learning College (AOLC), adult learners also benefit from the help and support of our friendly instructors. If you have a bookkeeping question, or need extra guidance on a lesson, they’ll help guide you every step of the way. And in just 4 to 12 months you’ll have developed the in-depth knowledge you need. From how to oversee payroll to bookkeeping for debit and credit transactions, you’ll soon have the bookkeeping skills you need to become a payroll professional.

2. Adult Learners Develop their Computer Skills in Payroll Administration Training

In today’s digital age, computers are an important part of almost any office. Many jobs that were once completed with little more than pen and paper—and maybe a trusty calculator—are now performed with the help of cutting-edge computer programs instead. For some adult learners, knowing how to use the latest software can seem a bit intimidating. They might be a perfect fit for a career in payroll, but worry that without an in-depth knowledge of standard industry software they won’t be able to break into this rewarding career path.
