Program Overview


If you would like to train to become an administrative assistant but are not able to attend classes on the West Prince Campus, the Administrative Assistant distance learning program might be just right for you. 

This hands-on program prepares you for an entry level position as an administrative professional in the private sector or in government. The administrative assistant program focuses on office procedures, written and oral communications, and basic computer programs, as well as professionalism, interpersonal communications, teamwork, critical thinking, problem solving, and customer service.

The practical learning includes computerized accounting, working with and developing spreadsheets, document preparation, and organizing meetings and events, which are duties of an administrative assistant in the modern office.

The program includes an on-the-job training component which provides you with an opportunity to apply the skills you learned in a modern office environment. The on-the-job placement is unpaid, and the duration is four weeks.

When you graduate, you can continue your training by transferring select credits from this program to the Legal Administration or Medical Support Services program.
