Anyone searching for flexible, in-demand career training may want to enrol in H&R Block’s Tax Academy.

You can see what it takes to become a pro at taxes by studying with industry leaders, oftentimes near your own home.

Classes are beginning in September. You could learn the skills and knowledge needed to open doors to real job opportunities.

By choosing Tax Academy, you can:

  • Train with industry leaders
  • Learn the ability to tackle any tax situation
  • Learn about working as a part-time tax professional at H&R Block
  • Gain flexibility and independence

H&R Block district manager Tracy Szczepaniak said Tax Academy appeals to a wide cross-section of people, from those starting their careers to retirees looking to keep engaged.

“What seems to attract people to our schools and wanting to work for us is the flexibility,” she said. “We have numerous positions and shifts available that work with most schedules.”

Recent retirees who still want personal interaction will find working for H&R Block an ideal option. They have the opportunity to work with people who are fun and excited to help the clients.

Students like the flexibility with their class schedules while they build their skills to continue with their careers.

Parents who are re-entering the workforce appreciate the flexibility and support from their fellow associates.

“We have associates that return year after year because they enjoy working with the clients and enjoy working with their co-workers,” Szczepaniak said.

“It can be a fun, exciting atmosphere that offers challenges plus continued education.”

H&R Block’s Tax Academy is a 78-hour training program that readies students for careers in tax preparation.

Students learn everything from employment and investment income to health-care expenses, pension income splitting and the Canada Child Benefit, plus more.

“We also work well with those that are new to Canada,” Szczepaniak said. “I have many associates that come from very high-level careers in other countries that are looking to build a new career in Canada. My associates support each other and help each other to succeed.

“I’m extremely proud of my associates.”
