Click to choose from multiple offerings

Being an administrative assistant isn’t what it used to be. Over the years it has evolved into a more integral role encompassing all aspects of office operations. And it’s growing, too. By 2022, the Bureau of Labor Statistics projects employment for administrative assistants will increase by 15.7 percent. That’s an additional 308,000 positions. “Administrative assistants often find themselves wearing many hats and juggling tasks,” said Pam Moss, program manager for the Administrative Professional Certificate. “They’re often tasked with keeping track of budgets and ensuring all departments adhere to the funds they’ve been allocated. At times, they’re enlisted as project managers, a role which requires advanced organization and planning skills.” These are just some of the skills addressed in our Administrative Professional course. The certificate program covers professional writing, meeting and event planning, web conferencing, changing technology and business ethics. It also serves as a stepping stone for those who desire to take the Certified Administrative Professional exam.
