The Office Administration - General certificate program is designed for students who wish to pursue administrative office support careers. Graduates of this program have the opportunity to enter the second year of the two-year Office Administration diploma program (Executive and/or Legal specialization). The program is continuously updated to meet current business standards.
The program is divided into two levels and develops office skills, computer applications using the Microsoft Office suite and other current software applications, administrative procedures, information management, and document formatting. Emphasis is placed on the development of strong technical, communications, and human relations skills. Students gain practical experience in the classroom through simulated office situations, and those who meet established criteria may participate in a mentoring program in the second level. Students can start in either the Fall or Winter term. For those admitted in the Winter term, it is anticipated that Level 02 courses will be completed in the Spring term.
These courses are intended as guidelines. Speak to your guidance counsellor to see what courses are offered at your school.
