Computer Applications and Office Management, Certificate of Achievement (C): Emphasis in Office Management
The Computer Applications and Office Management Department (COMP) is in business–the technology education business. We live in a culture governed by the demands of digital life. This digital life blurs and transforms old boundaries between work and home, public and private. It requires ever-increasing levels of technology literacy and competency. Computer software tools and devices constantly evolve and expand, as well as the skills needed to use them.
COMP serves that need across the entire arc of digital life—whether your career is still in preparation (pre-career), in progress (workforce training), or in transition (changing careers or retirement).
Our mission is to develop “technology-savvy adults” who possess literacy and competency in software productivity applications and tools that are part and parcel of our everyday lives—in the office, in the home office and in personal living.
The COMP Department is designed to meet the needs of all students and working professionals with a desire to improve their computer skills. SBCC can design a personalized program of study to meet your needs for:
• An introductory course
• A workshop to update your skills
• An advanced skills class
• A Skills Competency Award
• A Certificate of Achievement

• An Associate in Science Degree
You can take COMP courses in the way that best fits your lifestyle and schedule. Class formats include:
• Online/distance learning
• Self-paced lab instruction
