Office Technologies

If you like working on computers, entering data, and getting paid for it, then here is some good news for you.  Our Office Technologies program gives you the choice of Medical Office or Administrative Office.  

Medical Administrative Assistant is a growing field.  This career will be needed to handle administrative tasks related to billing and insurance processing.  Medical billers and coders are essential to the healthcare team at any medical facility.  Aging baby boomers, for example, will require more medical services as they become eligible for Social Security and Medicare.  You can learn these skills in the Medical Office option.

Attention to detail is important to you.  Catching errors to help save lives interests you. Working independently and flexible work hours are appealing. If so, this may be the job for you.

Maybe you would prefer a career in a business office where you may use skills in Microsoft Access, Outlook, PowerPoint, business communications, office management, and QuickBooks.  These are all offered in the Administrative Office option.  Many businesses require some or all of these skills in an Administrative Assistant.  This kind of position offers the possibility of  wide and varied experiences.

You might enjoy this type of job if you are organized, efficient, and conscientious.  You like to be on your computer and work with details. You would like to help people without actually working with them.  You were the kind of kid who liked to play secretary, librarian, or work puzzles.
