I came to AVTEC to study Administrative Assistant to gain more skills and knowledge in that occupational field. I have learned many things I did not know about. For example, most of us know about how to use Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint and such. But here, I've learned shortcuts and many different ways to use the programs and what they're used for. I'm currently learning how to use Microsoft Access which is something fun and complex at the same time. We do many things that are based on the what we choose. The first semester we went for Office Assistant, also known as fast-track. But while going for that first certificate, we also did some advanced work too. I've heard of some students who received a two-semester certificate in one semester. The workload isn't too bad, you learn how to use basic office software, and equipment such as 10-Key. The Business and Office Technology campus is not far from the dorms, it's a walking distance, about 2 and a half blocks. You also get to go on internships for a week or two to any company of your choice if they accept interns. The job opportunities are great too, because you learn up-to-date technology and software. You can even achieve College Credits at a cheaper price!
