Enter the office with confidence and skill

Businesses and ministries look for diligent, organized employees able to assist others and thrive in fast-paced office environments. PCC’s office systems program trains students to become efficient office workers.

With a firm grasp of secretarial concepts, an office systems graduate can confidently step into an entry-level office position with skill and confidence. Students gain proficiency in keyboarding and computer software, giving them a secure foundation in basic office procedures. Because success in an office environment requires both technical and interpersonal skills, PCC’s program emphasizes traits such as reliability, efficiency, organization, friendliness, and flexibility. Students develop an eye for detail and the ability to work independently or in a group setting.

After gaining this strong foundation in office procedure, graduates can further their knowledge by transferring to the four-year program once they meet two-year degree requirements. Having more experience and a greater knowledge of business and accounting sets the office administration graduate apart, allowing for greater employment possibilities.

High School Preparation

Recommended high school preparation for an office systems concentration is a keyboarding course in which students learn proper technique and develop speed and accuracy. Students will take a placement exam to determine a course best suited for their skills. Opportunities are available to make up keyboarding deficiencies. In this case, time required to complete an office systems concentration could be expected to increase.

Graduate Perspective

Right out of college I began working as a patient-account coordinator. I call insurance companies for claim follow-up, verify insurance coverage, and deal with patients regarding their accounts. I use everything I learned in class in ‘real life’ situations.
