Data-entry Course for Beginners

Learn data entry and monetize the skill immediately

The world has a ton of software for businesses and people. More software are being developed. These tools cannot work without data getting into them somehow. Yes, they say machines will do some data entry. However, for now, humans still do a lot of the data entry into these tools.

Ask anyone who built a software, the highest reason for abandonment, especially in Nigeria - it is lack of ability of business owners and managers to handle the data entry into the tool.

Can you guess why Accountinghub is Nigeria's largest reseller of the Sage cloud accounting software? The reason is not far-fetched; it is because we do not just sell the software, we do the data entry into it, for most of the businesses, that buy from us.

Data entry drives so many entry-level and even intermediate-level jobs. From the Teller at the Bank, who is entering data of deposits and withdrawals; to the lady at the DSTV office, who is entering data of account activations; to the man at the supermarket, who is entering data of your sales into the retail software; to even the electricity office, where you go to purchase power tokens.


Here's what the Course will cover

  • What data-entry is and why you should learn it
  • Data-entry needs for most Nigerian businesses

The Course is a beginner-level course. You need no accounting background. However, you need some above-secondary-education level, ability to use a computer and a hunger to launch a side hustle or even full hustle, with the skills learnt.
