Applied Business Technology

Our graduates say…

I was impressed by the willingness of my instructors to aid in my success. Having the ABT certificate has given me the ability to walk into a new job feeling prepared and confident.

Karen, 2007

I would like to thank everyone in the Applied Business Technology program for helping me develop the skills and knowledge necessary to succeed in the workplace today. I recommend ABT to people all the time, and I would not be enjoying my fantastic job at UCFV without it. Thank you so much!

Danielle, 2007

I thank you most sincerely for the past six months. At my age this life experience has given me not only new skills and more confidence, it has caused me to appreciate and re-evaluate my own abilities and work background.

Mila, 2004

I think that the ABT program far exceeded my expectations in preparing me for…the workplace.
I think the program has contributed most of all to my self-esteem and confidence in what I really can do.
…I wasn’t necessarily taking [the program] so I could get a better job,… I just wanted to learn some new skills. Now that I have completed my practicum, I find that I am looking for a new job, and that I definitely feel I can do what is needed to get the job that I want.

Hama, 2004

I can't get over how much I have learned in Excel. Once I'm done school I hope to do all our household expenses etc. with Excel. Thank you for making Excel fun and interesting to learn. Like I told … the other day, I can't say enough positive things about the ABT Program!

Leigh-Anne, 2004

I am a better person for taking this course….You never made me feel stupid for asking questions and you were always so helpful when I was struggling,….

Luwana, 2003

I have mastered many skills that will help me be a good employee…. I couldn’t have done it without the excellent guidance from the instructors.

Grace, 2003

I feel the Applied Business Technology program allowed me to succeed during my practicum, and it also helped me get a job at …. Two of the most important things I learned during the course were all the word processing skills and record management.

Nicole, 2003

Overall it has given me confidence and knowledge that I needed to be able to go back into an office and deal with today’s technology. Having worked in an office many years ago I knew about office protocol but computers were beyond my grasp.
…At first [I thought] I was too old to learn such a vast amount of material…and with the patience of my instructors somehow I got through it.

…I will do my best to keep up the standards of your program.

Sandy L., 2003

I think the ABT program prepared me well for employment. I feel a little more confident with myself….
I liked the fact that all instructors have very high standards, because that is also expected in an actual office environment. I enjoyed working with all the instructors and found everyone to be most helpful and encouraging.

All in all, the ABT program was excellent and I enjoyed it immensely. I would recommend it to anyone wanting to get back into the work force again.

Sandy M., 2003

I would like to thank you…for giving me the skills and the confidence to move forward in life, take chances, and achieve goals. I feel very lucky to have had the good fortune to know you, and learn from you.
