"Business Office Boot Camp" Offered This Summer in Bishop

April 24, 2012

Bishop, California – Cerro Coso Community College is offering six entry-level business office technology courses at the Owens Valley Career Development Center this summer. These courses are designed to equip students with the skills needed to function effectively and efficiently in an office environment. Because students are able to take all but 6 units of the requirements for the Business Office Technology Office Clerk Certificate in just 10 weeks, the program has been dubbed "Business Office Boot Camp."

Business Office Boot Camp is a ten week program, beginning on May 28th. The cost is $276 plus the price of books, and the Owens Valley Career Development Center (OVCDC) has grant funding to assist students who qualify for financial assistance. Students attend classes Monday through Thursday, and have the opportunity to work as local business interns on Fridays. They will gain experience, develop skills, make connections, strengthen their resumes, learn about a field, and enhance the local workforce. Boot Camp includes the following courses:

Eastern Sierra businesses will benefit from Boot Camp as well. They may find future employees among the interns. Business productivity will increase. Perspective will be enhanced with the introduction of fresh ideas and new skill sets. And because interns are unpaid, the program provides the business community with a valuable resource at no cost.
