The Administrative Support 2 Certificate of Achievement prepares the student to use the computer to perform advanced word processing functions, adapt software to a variety of different jobs, and perform general office skills using critical thinking and problem-solving skills. Typical duties include applying organizational and time management skills to increase productivity, managing both automated and manual records, and using technology to product office documents.
This certificate is the advanced level of the Administrative Support program. Completion of the Administrative Support 1 Completion Certificate fulfills a portion of the Administrative Support 2 Certificate of Achievement.
The role of office professionals (commonly known as receptionist, typist, and secretary) has changed due to the downsizing of companies, a decrease in middle managers, and increased use of technology. Excellent opportunities for employment continue in many companies. Because job titles in industry vary, emphasis is placed on skills and competency levels rather than job titles. Programs encompass the integration of 21st Century workforce skills emphasizing communication, teamwork, project management, and problem solving.

It is important that students who are completing an Associate Degree and desire to transfer to a four-year institution meet with a counselor to plan their lower division coursework. While many majors at SRJC are intended to align with lower division major preparation required by California public universities, specific lower-division major requirements vary among individual campuses. See a counselor, visit the Transfer Center, and check Guides For Transfer in Specific Majors, and ASSIST to review transfer preparation guides for specific schools and majors.
