Office Technology Certificate

Mission Statement

The Office Technology curriculum prepares students for administrative careers in industry, government, medicine, and law. Each program seeks to provide students not only with technical skills, but also with the necessary analytical and conceptual skills to perform successfully in the modern office environment.

The duties of an Administrative Assistant vary from organization to organization. Administrative assistants are information specialists who facilitate the flow of information into the organization through receiving and responding to requests via mail, email, and phone, as well as from other parts of the organization. They also assist in the dissemination of information through the creation of effective written correspondence. The Letter of Recognition program assists students in developing technology skills required for success in this field.

  2. To create and format mailable business documents.
