Certificates of Completion
If you find satisfaction in working as a team member, are well organized, and enjoy meeting and helping new people, Office Administration Technology could be the right program for you. This program has some significant advantages: it not only allows you to specialize in an area of interest to you, but it also provides a fast track to an entry-level position.

By studying a second year toward the associate of applied science degree in Office Administration Technology, you can prepare for a more challenging position as either a general administrative assistant, accounting assistant, or medical office assistant. You will learn to use state-of-the-art microcomputers, become familiar with various up-to-date software applications, and become proficient in a specific area of study.
