Mitchell Technical Institute will add another program to be delivered in Yankton beginning next fall.
Office Technology Specialist will be offered in Yankton beginning in August 2011. The program will provide skills training for students to enter careers with skills in office administration and support, software applications and basic accounting. This program is being offered in partnership with the Southeast Job Link in Yankton to meet a growing need for workers with this background. The knowledge and support of a skilled administrative assistant are always in demand, and students who develop the office technology skills along with strong interpersonal and organizational competencies will have a greater chance of success in today s workforce.
The program will be offered for a one-year diploma. Students who wish to pursue an Associate of Applied Science degree may do so by completing a second year of education on the MTI campus in Mitchell.
This will be a new educational/training opportunity for students in southeast South Dakota and compliments MTI s on-going efforts in the Yankton community. MTI currently offers a variety of energy and communications related programs in Yankton and is introducing a new Industrial Maintenance Technician program beginning in August 2011.
All classes will be taught in Yankton at the Technical Education Center. Financial aid is available.
For information about enrolling in the program, contact the MTI Admissions office at (605) 995-3025 or Sheri Duke at Southeast Job Link at (605) 668-3480.
