Program Goals Statement   

 

 

 

This certificate prepares students to work for doctors or dentists, in hospitals, health agencies, or related fields.

Program Information

Students learn computer applications, medical software, medical terminology, medical transcription, office procedures and customer service skills.

Most credits transfer into the Office Administration Associate degree - Medical Administrative Assistant option associate degree.

MAA courses are offered primarily during the day.

Recommendations

  • OFC 102 can be "waived" by a demonstrated keyboarding speed of 20 words per minute based on a two-minute timing administered by the Office Administration Department Chair.  OFC 102 is a prerequisite for OFC 113 and OFC 117.
  • The prerequisite for OFC 214 is OFC 113. Students who have not achieved the skill level equivalent to OFC 113 should consult with the Program Coordinator. 
  • A student who is unable to fit MAA 209 into the last spring semester should consult with the Program Coordinator about substituting the 3-credit CED 210 (Cooperative Work Experience I).
