The Kivalliq Campus celebrated the growing popularity of the Office Administration Program with seven graduates in Arviat and nine in Baker Lake in 2017.

The program provides students with the skills to work as administrators in the public and private sectors. Roles may include executive secretaries, administrative assistants, or office managers, among others.

Students who complete the one-year Office Administration Certificate (or equivalent) may continue for a second year, graduating with a diploma. Demand for the diploma program was high.

“Last year we delivered the one-year Office Administration Certificate Program in Baker Lake and Arviat,” said Evan Morrison, Coordinator, Community Programs in the Kivalliq Region. “There was a waiting list of people interested in taking Year 2 (Diploma Year) in each community.”

In all, NAC accommodated 16 students in Arviat and Baker Lake for the diploma program. Graduates now have the knowledge and skills to fill professional roles throughout the region. “This is a great opportunity for us to deliver higher level training in decentralized communities,” said Morrison.
