    Program Requirements:

    This Program is a Certificate of Achievement. Because the administrative field continues to rank among the largest occupations in the U.S. economy, job opportunities for skilled Administrative Assistants are available locally and nationally. According to the U.S. Department of Labor, approximately nine out of ten Administrative Assistants are employed in service-providing industries that range from education, health care, and social services to government and retail trade. Depending on experience, skills, and level of responsibility, salaries vary broadly. However, job applicants with extensive technology knowledge and workforce skills such as communication, teamwork, project management, problem-solving, and systems develop are in high demand. Individuals who have earned certification typically earn higher salaries and are in high demand for employment. The traditional role of office professionals continues to dramatically change due to corporate downsizing, the elimination of middle managers, and the increased dependency on technology. As a result, the importance and value of the administrative professionals have dramatically increased, and the demand for well-trained, well-rounded administrative staff has never been greater. Most businesses regard administrative workers as the operation’s point people and rely on their skilled expertise and operational coordination to accomplish multiple administrative and clerical duties that are essential to efficiently running an organization. Some of the key responsibilities expected of Administrative Assistants are planning and scheduling meetings, troubleshooting office equipment and programs, conducting project and database management, disseminating information, pursuing Internet research, composing correspondence, and answering phones, emails and other communication. The Administrative Assistant Program includes an internship, which provides the student an opportunity to use their acquired skills in an office environment and gain experience in their profession before completing the program. This certificate is the advanced level of the Administrative Assistant program. Students completing the Office Assistant Completion Certificate will have fulfilled a portion of the Administrative Assistant Certificate of Achievement. More information about the programs can be found at the Business Admimistration Department website.

    Program Requirements Notes:

    Program prerequisites are put in place by external accreditation and regulatory agencies and are not subject to catalog rights. Starting Fall 2009, only college transferable reading and composition courses (English 1A or equivalent) will be accepted to fulfill the English prerequisite requirement. Completion of all prerequisites must show on official transcripts. Listing of articulated classes are available for review: Articulation Agreements (https://articulation.santarosa.edu/california-community-colleges).

    Starting in 2015, the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists will require an Associate Degree as eligibility to sit for the licensing examination. Therefore, the SRJC Radiologic Technology Program strongly urges all applicants who do not possess an Associate Degree or higher, to complete all of the general education requirements for an Associate of Science degree prior to admission to the program in Fall 2013. The program prerequisites only fulfill the graduation requirements in areas A, B, C, D, and G for students using the Option A General Education Pattern.

    Recency: applies to Anatomy and Medical Terminology only. Beginning with the application cycle for students targeting Fall 2019 and subsequent admission years, recency will no longer be required for Intermediate Algebra or Physiology

    Notes:

    Accepted students must successfully pass a criminal background check (paid by students) that will require social security numbers.

    All program classes and prerequisites taken in conjunction with this program must be completed with a letter grade of 'C' or better.
