Program Description

Today's office is a dynamic place to work with global networking, communication and work flows becoming increasingly complex and challenging. In order to ensure the efficiency of the organization, employers depend on office administrators to provide effective clerical support to all levels of management. They need staff with exceptional computer skills and organizational skills and specific business skills such as bookkeeping, customer service and document processing. In this one-year certificate program, students develop the necessary technical, organizational and interpersonal skills that will enhance their role as an effective member of the office team. With a wide variety of hands-on practical experience and creative thinking skills, graduates are fully trained to meet the demands of today's challenging work environment.
