Are you looking for efficient ways to enhance your skills and increase your professional worth? We are here to help you achieve this.
To accomplish this, we work closely with the Department of Labor to strategically offer the most relevant courses designed to instill you with the skills needed to enter rapidly-growing job industries. Several employment fields are experiencing growth and seeking prospective candidates proficient with office professional and management skills.
Three professional certificate programs that will best prepare you to be a successful office professional are Administrative Professional, Basic Office Technology and Meeting & Event Management.
“These courses represent the core fundamentals required for most office positions,” said Pam Moss, program manager. “The importance of these skills is not overlooked by employers.”
Be a Pro
Our Administrative Professional course will help you develop the knowledge and skills necessary for workplace success in tasks such as telephone, records management, mail, financial records, and presentations. You will also learn basic procedures for managing office tasks by studying time management techniques and completing applications in an office simulation format.
“The education is great,” Nicole O’Neil, program graduate, said. “If you’re looking for an administrative professional program with hands-on experience, this is it.”
Get Tech Savvy
In our Basic Office Technology class, you will experience real-world training of multiple devices such as apps, computers, smartphones and digital cameras. Additionally, you will become savvy with Microsoft Office 2013 products, security safety, ethics and privacy.
“This is a hardware and software class designed to get individuals returning to the workplace up-to-speed on office technology,” Doug Vanderbilt, class instructor, said. “It’s not a technology class — we’re not taking computers apart — but students will become comfortable with using technology in the workplace.”
Become a Master Multi-Tasker
One of our Meeting & Event Management instructors, Jeff Whitney, says the course is a great for anyone who has an interest in the meetings/events industry, seeking a career change, or currently works within the industry and wants to broaden their knowledge, understanding and expertise.
“I owe my career in planning to this program,” said Mattie Logan, program graduate. “It gives you the tools to build a career and support to help you grow and succeed.”
Our Project Management program gives you the opportunity to master skills that are crucial in multiple industries with a qualification most employers seek in job candidates. Earning this certificate will enhance your expertise and expand your career options.
“The material and pace of the course is amazing, updated and suitable for people with all levels of project management experience,” Jose Lantigua, program graduate said.
“For the past 14 years, I have been a mission planner for the Army, a job closely related to project management,” said Darrell Vaughan, 2014 graduate using VA Education Benefits. “The project management program has validated my military experiences and helped me apply them to the civilian sector.”
One of our newest management programs is Lean Six Sigma. It is comprised of two courses: Yellow Belt and Green Belt. Lean Six Sigma is a proven, project-driven strategy to improve quality, increase customer satisfaction and deliver bottom line results.
Instructed by Dr. Bill Bailey, the program is ideal for anyone involved in process improvement, managers, engineers and other improvement team members. Lean Six Sigma began within the manufacturing industry, but is applicable to all organizations small and large. The Yellow Belt is ideally for team members rather than leaders.
