Business Operations Facilitator Certificate available this fall

LLCC is offering a new business operations facilitator certificate beginning this fall. The program can be completed in two semesters and provides an introduction to business and accounting principles and an in-depth exploration of business software applications.

“This certificate is designed for students interested in careers as scheduler/production clerks and office support assistants. Responsibilities of the business operations facilitator center around keeping the business operations running smoothly by coordinating people, resources, time and customers,” says Dr. Victor Broderick, dean of social sciences and business at LLCC. “It can be fast-paced with no two days exactly the same.”

Completed certificate classes can also be applied toward LLCC’s business management associate in applied science degree if students wish to continue their education.
