Online business classes offered at South Georgia Tech

AMERICUS – South Georgia Technical College (SGTC) is offering two Business Technology Technical Certificate of Credit (TCC) options that can be taken completely online Fall Semester. Classes start Monday, August 17 and it is not too late to sign up for this great program that might unlock new career opportunities.

Technical Certificates of credit in Accounting are also available but it usually takes at least three semesters. However, individuals interested in accounting can start with at least two classes online this fall, said Brenda Boone, SGTC Accounting instructor.

Teresa Jolly, SGTC Crisp County Business Technology instructor, revealed that earning certification or licensure shows potential employers that you are a qualified and accomplished professional in your chosen career and that may play a role in employment decisions and promotions.

“This is a great opportunity for someone who is looking to enter the job market or who would like to advance in their current job,” explained Jolly. “Both of these technical certificate of credit certifications would let employers know what you have the skills needed to fill an entry-level job. It may also help with career advancement.”

The two Business Technology Technical Certificate of Credit options completely online fall semester at SGTC include the Administrative Support Assistant and the Microsoft Word Application Specialist. The Administration Support Assistant TCC includes an Introduction to Computers class, a class in Office Procedures, Word Processing and Document production plus two electives.

Business Technology provides the general skills that can transfer into a wide array of careers in business. Business Administration is a wide field that incorporates many types of management positions. Every operation needs skills administrators in order to succeed. Many top business executives will get their start working in office administration or in hospitality, retail, sales or operations management. Accounting knowledge is also very helpful.

The Business Technology and Accounting classes offered online this fall semester at SGTC are part of diploma and associate degree programs. Fall semester classes start Monday, August 17 and it is not too late to apply and register. SGTC is hosting face-to-face registration Tuesday through Thursday, August 11-13, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at both the Americus and Crisp County campuses. Social distancing guidelines will be observed.
