Are you a recent Office Administration - Health Services or Medical graduate? Do you wish to broaden your skills? If your Ontario College Diploma is seven years old or less, you can earn a second diploma in Office Administration - Executive in only one year. Lambton College has made it easy for Office Administration graduates to earn a second credential without having to submit transfer credit requests. All you have to do is apply directly through and register for the specialty you wish to pursue.

The role of administrative professionals continues to expand and executives are relying on their assistants more than ever to help address business needs. Computers facilitate the quick exchange of all types of information; however, administrative professionals must be able to craft clear and convincing messages using tact and diplomacy and prove they are the ultimate multi-taskers. Success will depend on the student's ability to communicate effectively with colleagues, customers and clients and advanced proficiency in all aspects of computer software. This double diploma opportunity will expand your knowledge and experiential portfolio which will open up more pathways in the field of office administration. In the office of the future, graduates may be required to operate more autonomously as the workforce relies more and more on mobile technology.
