Word Processing, Certificate, Major # 0996

This program has been deactivated and students will no longer be admitted to the major.  Currently enrolled students will complete the degree in accordance with the approved teach-out plan.

The Word Processing program is designed for the student who wishes to de- velop new office skills, particularly in the areas of current office technology (computer software) and office communications, or to refine existing skills. This program is especially appropriate for a person who has been out of high school for a period and is planning to enter or re-enter the office field.

 The majority of  this Certificate program has online courses which offer the flexibility for those students who work full time or who may be “stay at home parents” and cannot attend classes during the day. This certificate pro- gram is offered both at the Morrisville main campus and/or at the Norwich campus.

Students are trained in proper keyboarding and machine transcription techniques, computer software skills and procedures, data entry techniques, letter and report writing, English grammar and spelling, basic accounting principles, telephone operation, mail procedures, reprographics, filing and office machines. The program appeals to the individual desiring skills in operating personal computers and other automatic office equipment. Faculty back- ground includes practical office work experience. Students can easily continue into one of  the associate degree programs in Office Administration.
