Program Description
Sioux City Campus

In the Administrative Office Support program, the student will develop skills for entry-level office employment, with emphasis on office technology. Technology is playing a big role in the 9 percent increase in administrative support occupations expected between 2006 and 2016.

The program emphasizes the development of multifunctional office and computer skills in proofreading and editing, keyboarding and document formatting, filing, human relations, machine transcription, computerized 10-key, and accounting. Students will become familiar with up-to-date office procedures and equipment.

Utilizing a Windows operating system, they will be trained on computers to use applications for document formatting, word processing, spreadsheets, databases, and presentation graphics.

Graduates of this program are encouraged to go into the Administrative Office Management program, which leads to an Associate of Applied Science degree. Graduates with an AAS are prepared for positions as office managers, office support supervisors, or as associates to top executives.
