CCET to present Administrative Assistant Training Program

The Center for Community Education and Training (CCET) at Alfred State College is introducing a new program designed to help people launch a career as an efficient and successful administrative assistant.

The program will run from Nov. 5 through Jan. 30 and feature a total of 21 classes that take place from 6:30-8:30 p.m. Students will learn about a variety of related topics from filing and bookkeeping, to making travel arrangements, to using Microsoft Office, to business letter writing, and much more. In order to receive a certificate of completion, students must attend all classes.

Wendy Dresser-Recktenwald, Alfred State’s chief of staff of Human Resources and CCET, said, “Alfred State’s Administrative Assistant Training Program has been developed to help those who are unemployed or underemployed secure jobs that require higher level administrative and clerical skills to provide support to management. We are excited to once again offer opportunities for students to learn skills and competencies in high-demand occupations. This program will provide a comfortable learning environment with a consistent instructor who will help students grow and develop in this field.”

The cost of the program is $1,800, which does not cover the two required textbooks. Those interested are urged to check with their local employment and training agencies on whether funding is available to help with the cost of the program.
