Industry Testing for Certification
Upon completion of the appropriate core Office Technologies
courses, students demonstrate proficiency by participating in
the industry certification exam process. Certification exams are
administered by EITC using the Office Proficiency and
Certification (OPAC) testing system. A technology fee is
assessed for each of the two courses that are directly related to
the EITC required industry certification exams. This technology
fee covers the costs of students sitting for each of the required
exams. A certificate detailing OPAC industry certifications is
available for a small fee. Please see the Office Technologies
advisor for details.

OFFICE TECHNOLOGIES
Program Options
Associate of Applied Science Degree
Intermediate Technical Certificate
The Office Technologies program is designed to meet the needs
of students as they prepare to enter employment in an office
environment. The program offers two options for students.
Graduates of either option find excellent opportunities available
to them in a wide range of career-related fields.
The Office Professional option is the two-year option resulting in
an Associate of Applied Science (AAS) degree. This option
prepares students to perform advanced text processing,
spreadsheet and database operations, as well as basic
bookkeeping. Students who graduate with the AAS degree
are well prepared to perform a wide variety of administrative
support functions in large or small companies, as a member of a
team or individually.
The Office Specialist program is a one-year option resulting in
an Intermediate Technical Certificate. This option is designed for
the student who is interested in gaining entry-level knowledge,
skills, and attitudes necessary for maintaining a well-run office.
Students who complete this option will be prepared to provide
office support by applying information and computer
technologies to sustain work processes, manipulate and manage
information, and enhance the overall efficiency and effectiveness
of the organization. The courses for this option are the same as
the courses for the first year of the AAS option, thus a student
may easily change to the AAS program if desired later.
Both options offer a joint leadership course which concentrates
on developing students into professionals. The Office
Technology program provides excellent opportunities for
personal and professional growth essential for the workplace.
Intended Learning Outcomes
• Manage an office effectively and efficiently.
• Communicate clearly and professionally in both written and
oral formats.
• Recognize professional values and exhibit professional
behaviors in the work environment.
• Use appropriate technology and technical skills to manage
information and solve problems.
• Understand and consistently apply company policies and
procedures.
Entrance Requirements
Students must contact Student Services for information to
schedule to schedule a keyboarding test for placement in the
appropriate keyboarding courses.
Program Costs
In addition to the semester registration fees, an Office
Technologies student can expect to spend approximately $1,200
on books and supplies for the certificate program and $1,600 for
the degree program. Students may also incur additional costs in
updating/purchasing software and taking industry certification
exams.
