The material in this program is far and away the most expansive in terms of applicability. The overwhelming majority of professional occupations require skills learned in AOP because that material is the foundation of how all businesses and organizations work.
Communication, customer service, spreadsheets, word processing, file and record organization are but the tools. Proficiency in working with people, organizing information and managing projects in varying complexity and time duration determine the success not only of administrative support personal, but of CEOs and presidents, as well.
