Office Administration Certificate

This program is offered at Clark State's Beavercreek, Bellefontaine and Springfield locations.

A one-year certificate in Office Administration is available for students who need a quicker entry into the job market. This will provide the student with the skills needed for entry-level positions in today's computer-oriented and fast-paced business office. Students can fully apply this one-year certificate toward the completion of either the Office Administration or the Medical Office Administration associate degree programs. This certificate can be earned through a combination of evening and online courses.

Office Administration certificate students should have basic computer skills:  use a keyboard, mouse, external storage device, and a printer; differentiate among drives, folders, and files; employ a username and password.  Students lacking in any of these areas should enroll in ITS 0800 Computer Fundamentals prior to enrolling in any OAD or other ITS course.

 Students should also be able to type at least 35 words per minute on a five-minute timed writing.  Students who cannot meet this standard should enroll in ITS 0810 Keyboarding or ITS 1210 Keyboarding/Word Processing prior to enrolling in any OAD or other college-level ITS course.   Students who cannot meet the 35 word-per-minute standard on the first day of OAD 1101 will be required to withdraw and enroll in ITS 0810 or ITS 1210.  ITS 0800, ITS 0810, and ITS 1210 are considered preparatory for starting the Office Administration Certificate  and do not count toward the certificate.
