Approved as a vocational program under the Private Career Colleges Act, 2005

Optional 8 Week Work Placement

The Administrative Assistant (with Accounting) program is an excellent way to prepare for a career in today’s advanced office environment. In addition to learning business communications, students will learn to use the latest Microsoft Office applications with the opportunity to earn 2 Microsoft Certifications, satisfying employer demands to perform Microsoft desktop applications in an office environment.

Students will also learn Accounting Principles and the Accounts Payable, Accounts Receivable and Payroll portions of Simply Accounting software widely used in offices throughout Canada.

We have found this combination of courses to be a winning combination in securing permanent employment in the London and surrounding area.

The ALPHALOGIC Difference

The AlphaLogic difference is based on education that is focused on helping each individual student achieve success, rather than the traditionally large lecture-led classroom. Perhaps you have not done well in a traditional lecture focused classroom, either because you were embarrassed to ask questions or got left behind due to missed classes.

At AlphaLogic we focus on you, individually. This means that you get the one-on-one help you need from a qualified instructor, who is always there to help you. Our student centered system of learning will help you get higher grades and ultimately the career you’ve always dreamed about.
