Technical Diploma

Become job-ready in today’s fast-paced world as an office support specialist!

Specialists are key members of the office team and often the communication link in the office through the use of technology and personal interactions. A primary focus of your job is the preparation of documents using software applications and exciting, ever-changing technology.

Students learn from hands-on projects done in and outside the classroom that include clothing drives, etiquette luncheons, and high profile event planning. Employers are looking for graduates who can handle multiple projects and deadlines, manage time, solve problems, and are helpful in nature. Specialists also need to work effectively with individuals, teams, and the public.

The Office Support Specialist program is offered at the Adams County Center and the Marshfield, Stevens Point, and Wisconsin Rapids campuses.
