The curriculum is provided for those individuals who desire to train, retrain, or upgrade their skills for an occupation in a business environment.  All students should have the opportunity to develop to their highest potential in the best learning environment possible through guidance and instruction by a well-trained staff and hands-on applications using equipment which duplicates, as nearly as possible, equipment found in business offices.
