The Administrative Technology Program prepares students to enter the dynamic world of the modern automated office. The program provides a solid foundation in general education and the depth in technical skills needed in the changing office environment. In consultation with a faculty advisor, students can use directed electives to strengthen or broaden their own preparation for employment.

The overall focus of the computer classes in Administrative Technology is to provide students with quality instruction and many hours of “hands-on” experience at the computer. Students will be taught software packages that are currently used in the workplace.

Keyboarding competency of 20 words a minute with five or less errors is a must before entering the Associate degree or certificate plans. Please talk to an Administrative Technology advisor if you have questions or concerns.
