The Administrative Assistant Program is designed to prepare students for positions in business related industries. These positions include: Receptionist, Secretary, Office Clerk, Administrative Assistant, Data Entry, and Entry-level Clerical positions. Employers set minimum requirements for positions in order to establish basic proficiency and skills in the workplace. Many entry-level careers require more than a High School Diploma. To increase their potential for employment, students have recognized the value of additional education and skills training. The Administrative Assistant Program is designed to give students the basic training in business principles (ethical relationships, morals, values), office procedures (fax, copy, keyboarding, business telephone), software application (word processing, spreadsheets, presentations), and communication skills (business speech, and presentation) to meet an employer’s needs.
