Business Data Processing (6392)
The college credit certificate in business data processing is an abbreviated program recommended for those students with previous college level coursework and/or business experience. It is a one-year course of study for those who wish to be gainfully employed as programmer trainees or programmer analyst trainees.
Students may enter the program in any term. However, summer course offerings are not as plentiful as fall and spring. Part-time students may take twice as long to finish the required coursework for graduation, depending on the course load carried each term. Most of the courses are also offered in the evenings for convenience of students who work during the day.
SPECIAL NOTES: Based on placement test results, students may be required to take additional courses in the areas of reading, writing and mathematics.
Students are expected to have keyboarding skills. Twenty-five words per minute are considered to be a basic level of keyboarding proficiency. OST 1100 Keyboarding/Introduction to Word Processing is recommended to students who need to acquire keyboarding skills.
