Business Technology

business technology program

The Business Technology program provides students with both basic and advanced skills necessary to begin and excel at employment in almost any business setting. Our industry contacts continue to emphasize the need for soft skills, so we start by focusing our core courses on the fundamental computer skills needed to work in an office, as well as customer service and both written and verbal communication. Students will develop advanced computer skills as they work toward obtaining Microsoft Office Certifications: Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, Access, and OneNote. These industry certifications will enhance any resume and offer concrete evidence of superior computer skills.
