I came to AVTEC to study Administrative Assistant to gain more skills and knowledge in that occupational field. I have learned many things I did not know about. For example, most of us know about how to use Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint and such. But here, I've learned shortcuts and many different ways to use the programs and what they're used for. I'm currently learning how to use Microsoft Access which is something fun and complex at the same time. We do many things that are based on the what we choose. The first semester we went for Office Assistant, also known as fast-track. But while going for that first certificate, we also did some advanced work too. I've heard of some students who received a two-semester certificate in one semester. The workload isn't too bad, you learn how to use basic office software, and equipment such as 10-Key. The Business and Office Technology campus is not far from the dorms, it's a walking distance, about 2 and a half blocks. You also get to go on internships for a week or two to any company of your choice if they accept interns. The job opportunities are great too, because you learn up-to-date technology and software. You can even achieve College Credits at a cheaper price!

There are several courses you take such as Business English (all students) and Record Keeping (Office Assistants, Administrative Assistants and Medical Admin Assistants) for the Accounting students they have a different book (not sure what it's called but it's similar to Record Keeping but much more complex.) As for myself, I am going for Administrative Assistant. I am currently on my second (and last semester! Yes, only TWO SEMESTERS and you're done!) It's the start of the year so right now I am working on Microsoft Access, later in the semester I will start on Advanced Word and Excel, where we look deeper into the software than we did when we were going for Office Assistants. I will also be taking my last exam for the IC3 (Internet and Computer Core Certification) and towards the end of the semester I will take my exams for Microsoft Office Specialist. The instructors are very knowledgeable and they know what they are doing. They even stay after classes if you need any help. However, because the courses are fast-paced there are some students that fall behind and may go on Academic Probation and if you don't attempt to catch up on your work, you may get kicked out of the program. However, there is a library on-site across from the dorms that are open for about 6 hours a day, open 7 days a week as long as there is a student worker available. The class sizes vary do to the amount of students who apply and get accepted. (There is a $25 non-refundable fee) When I first started we were about 10 students, my second semester there are 12+ new students.

However, it's not a college degree, it is a certificate. Which means that you are certified for the position (Office Assistant, Administrative Assistant, Medical Administrative Assistant, and Accounting Specialist) There is a 92% graduation rate, the 8% are usually kicked out of the program or kicked off campus (there are rules and if you don't follow them you may get a warning or kick out of the dorms/family housing). Last semester the returning students had internships and all of them learned valuable work ethics and skills in their occupational field.

On campus, there are two different dorm facilities. The main dorms have thin walls :( which basically means that you can literally hear people on the other side of the wall. However, the second dorms on 4th Avenue are soundproof, and much more quieter than the main dorms. There's a cafeteria and the dorm resident are in the main dorms. The Student Service Center (SSC Building) is open to the students 24/7. On the first floor of the SSC Building include a Gymnasium, three work-out sites, ceramics room (basically a arts and crafts room). and on the second floor there is a library and couches. They are all free to use for the students (and their families). But like any facility there are rules you must follow. Go to their website avtec.edu for more information
