Starting in September 2012, Montgomery County Community College will offer a new Virtual Assistance Certificate of Completion and an Office Administration AAS Degree with Concentration in Virtual Assistance to help experienced assistants gain the skills they need to work remotely in a satellite office, at home or in another location.
You can learn more about the Virtual Assistance certificate program and concentration courses during a free information session on Tuesday, Aug. 7, at 7 p.m. in room 101 of the Advanced Technology Center, 340 DeKalb Pike, Blue Bell and in room 218 of North Hall, 16 W. High Street, Pottstown. The interactive session will be shared between the campuses.
To confirm your attendance, please RSVP to Coordinator and Instructor of Computer Applications and Office Administration Theresa Sullivan at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Virtual Assistance program/concentration will provide students with up-to-date technology skills—such as web conferencing, application sharing and data security—and the soft skills of business planning, ethics, marketing and networking to perform their responsibilities independently.Listen to Theresa Sullivan talk about the program with College President Dr. Karen A.
