High Demand 
The AOT program at Tri-County is up-to-date to meet the needs of our surrounding businesses. Because we focus on maximizing efficiencies and productivity, the skills you’ll learn are in constant demand. The computer skills and advanced office skills you’ll gain are ideal in most any high-tech setting, especially technical, legal and medical. Our area employers especially appreciate that our students have a full semester of Word, Excel and Access, so they can go well beyond the bare basics.

AOT: Medical Emphasis Offers a Needle-Free Healthcare Career 

There are many opportunities to work in healthcare settings that do not involve direct-patient care. In fact, office jobs in hospitals, doctor’s offices, long-term care facilities, and other ambulatory settings are in high demand. The complexity of medical terms and procedures requires specialized training, training that’s available right here. Learn skills in electronic patient scheduling and billing, advanced office and computer skills specific to the high-tech medical office environment, as well as a range of tasks that support the daily operations of various healthcare settings, including medical vocabulary, information processing, communication skills and office management. You’ll gain in-depth knowledge and experience that will help you succeed in a healthcare setting.
