Technical Certificate

Office Management (6359)

Earning the Office Management technical certificate will lead to satisfying work as an administrative support clerk, office assistant, junior administrative assistant or records management specialist. The computer, customer service, and math skills you learn will make you a valuable member of any business office team. If you’re already working, the additional training will enhance your abilities and potential to advance.

This technical certificate is included as an option within the Office Administration degree program. Students may choose to pursue an A.S. or A.A.S. degree and earn technical certificates while completing the requirements for the degree, or pursue one or more certificate programs to develop or upgrade their skills in a particular field. Contact an advisor or counselor to determine the career education path that is best for you.

Students may complete a degree in only one of the three specialty tracks, Office Administration, Medical Office or Office Software Applications. Students who wish to add a second area of specialization after completing a degree should pursue the technical certificate in that area.
