Office Administration: Information Processing Standard Certificate

The Information Processing Option is designed to prepare graduates to be secretaries or administrative assistants. There are secretarial openings available in virtually every phase of commerce. Secretaries and administrative assistants work in banks, insurance companies, wholesale and retail establishments, educational institutions, and government organizations as well as the professional offices of doctors, lawyers, and accountants. In order to properly prepare for these positions, the microcomputer is incorporated into the legal and medical transcription classes. The student must demonstrate ability in transcribing letters, memorandums, and reports.  Other skills such as the ability to spell, punctuate, use correct grammar, compose routine letters, and operate the microcomputer are also emphasized. Completion of this program will enable a student to efficiently handle all common office procedures.
