The Administrative Assistant Program helped me achieve my goals with my current employment. In my position I work on the computer three quarters of the day which in turn by taking this program has helped me be more successful at what my job requires from me.

Thank you to all the staff at AOLCC past/present for helping to achieve my goals and graduating with Honours.
