Administrative Office Technology


The Administrative Office Technology program is designed to develop the skills, knowledge, and attitudes that office professionals need to secure good jobs and succeed in today's computerized offices as well as the more traditional office environments.  Students have the opportunity to work and experience extensive "hands-on" training with modern office equipment and computer software. Each phase of the program has been carefully structured so that every student may reach the maximum skill level regardless of prior office training or experience.

Trainees may select a major area of interest leading to a diploma from those listed below. Within each major area, students also have the opportunity to develop the skills needed for several different certificate levels of training.  Students receive up-to-date instruction, realistic work simulations, and experience on today’s most widely used office equipment. The program features externship, co-op employment, and articulation with secondary and post-secondary schools for transition through the instructional process.
