What is an Administrative Office Professional?

The list of tasks an administrative office professional might perform is almost endless. These key business support workers schedule appointments, transcribe audio files, greet customers, file documents, write and process letters, and much more. In addition to these traditional duties, technological advances require business support personnel to be able to do more complex tasks involving research, statistical analysis and so on. At MTI Sacramento, you will be trained for all of these tasks and gain extensive experience with important software applications, voice mail, internet-based tools, supervising and training others, and more.
