See program requirement sheet. 

The Advanced Office Skills Certificate is designed for the person who already has good office skills and recent office experience and now wants to update office technology knowledge and skills for return to the workforce, job change, or career advancement. Broad skill areas rather than specific required courses have been identified for this certificate because students have varied experience, skills, and goals.

Credit/Grade Requirements This Certificate requires successful completion of a minimum of 35 credits as outlined. A minimum of 30 credits or one-third of the required credits, whichever is less, must be earned at Edmonds Community College. Students are required to maintain a minimum cumulative grade point average of 2.0 in all college-level courses.

Graduation Application A completed Graduation Application form must be submitted to Enrollment Services by the 10th day of the quarter in which the student expects to graduate. Forms are available online or at Enrollment Services located in Lynnwood Hall.

Students are advised to:

  • Plan their schedule several quarters in advance in order to accommodate courses that are offered only once or twice a year,
  • Review the college catalog for required course prerequisites and include these in schedule planning, and
  • Communicate with a faculty adviser.
