)-- The administrative profession has advanced. Gone are the days where admins only answer the phone, check the mail, and greet visitor’s. Today’s administrative professionals are expected to know current technologies and office software applications; understand the company culture and mission; be able to communicate both orally and written; manage events, projects and tasks; and take a personal interest in advancing professionally.
The Bureau of Labor and Statistics reports overall employment of secretaries and administrative assistants is expected to grow 12 percent from 2010 to 2020. They also report the median annual wage for secretaries and administrative assistants was $34,660 in May 2010. The lowest 10 percent earned less than $21,730, and the top 10 percent earned more than $55,960.
The curriculum in the Administrative Professionals Certificate Training program focuses on five core competencies; communications, digital technologies and new media, business etiquette, event planning, project management and professional development. Classes will be held in the evening weekly at the offices of Maryland Resource and Training Center at 1300 Mercantile Lane, Suite 139-N in Largo.
