What You'll Learn

Color Accounting™ is designed to make it easier to learn the fundamentals of accounting. It is an augmentation of the process that you already know. Through the use of diagrams and logical colors, you will see graphically how accounting works. 

With this online accounting training program, you will learn the language of business and understand how it can be applied to business decisions.​ Mark Robilliard, the Co-Founder of Color Accounting™, praised this course for having “all the best attributes of the acclaimed classroom-based workshop, but in the convenience of your own time.”

Course Description

Course Overview

What is color accounting

Color Accounting is a revolutionary way of quickly and easily understanding financial information in a brilliant self-study workshop format.  You will use diagrams and logical colors to see graphically how accounting actually works in a fun and interactive way. However, keep in mind that this course is in no way a substitute or replacement for traditional accounting. 

Interactive Learning With Online Accounting Training

We at Universal Accounting fully engage you with story-telling, hands-on teaching, and model building activities when you choose this online accounting training program.  It all happens on your desk and in a vivid diagram of a board in front of you.  You’ll see the accounting model in a whole new way. No boring lectures and no assumptions that you already know the basics. 

Convenient At Home Learning

Color Accounting™ is a new interactive way of learning about accounting that has aided tens of thousands of students, managers, lawyers, and leaders worldwide. It has had a life-changing impact on their skills, confidence, communication, and success. This program is delivered through easy-to-follow instructional videos and workbooks (over 600 pages of instruction and reference materials). You have the flexibility to complete the online accounting training courses on your own time, in a way that fits your life.


Color Accounting was initially used as an adult accelerated learning system for corporate education in the workplace.  Neurological research has backed up what Color Accounting practitioners have noticed: that humans respond quicker to conceptual information presented graphically and spatially.  Many examples continue to show that Color Accounting enhances traditional accounting courses. Today our clients range from the smallest business to executive teams of fortune 500 companies. From lawyers, legislators, financial regulators, salespeople, interns, engineers, bankers, entrepreneurs, and of course accountants the benefits of Color Accounting are far-reaching.
