About this Program

Students learn to perform a wide variety of office tasks such as: Keyboarding or typing business correspondence, reports, business forms, and other documents using electronic typewriters or word processing equipment. Purchasing a laptop is a requirement of the Granite Falls program. Students should contact the Granite Falls Campus for laptop specifications before purchasing. Receptionists greet customers and other visitors, determine their needs and refer callers to the person who can help them. They may issue visitors' passes and arrange for escorts to take visitors to the proper office. When not busy with callers, they may type, file, operate a switchboard, open and sort mail, schedule appointments, prepare travel vouchers and do simple bookkeeping.
