Administrative Professional Certificate Program

Course Details

PDC has developed a certificate program that is designed for individuals in administrative support roles who are the heart and soul of successful organizations. As the voice and face of the company, administrative professionals are communicators, organizers, facilitators and often office managers who are expected to perform a variety of tasks.

In contrast to the traditional role of administrative personnel in previous decades, today's administrative professionals must be dynamic, active and engaged in order to perform the crucial daily functions of an organization. They are decision-makers, multi-taskers and must have a strong knowledge base to resolve issues, be adept at technology and above all, communicate persuasively and effectively.

The Administrative Professional Certificate Program will give you the tools you need to strengthen your value as an organizational stakeholder. Strengthen your foundation in the fundamentals of communications, finance, leadership skills, and more.  

Who Should Attend

This program will benefit those who wish to work as an administrative professional and those already working in the field looking to improve their knowledge and skills.
