Office Clerk / Data Entry Clerk Classes

Office Clerk / Data Entry Clerk

Rather than performing a single specialized task, Office Clerks/Data Entry Clerks have responsibilities that often change daily with the needs of the specific job and the employer. Some clerks spend their days filing or keyboarding. Others enter data at a computer terminal. They also operate photocopiers, fax machines, and other office equipment; prepare mailings; proofread documents; and answer telephones and deliver messages. The specific duties assigned to a clerk vary significantly, depending on the type of office in which he or she works. The HBAS Career Training Center prepares Office Clerks/Data Entry Clerks to be prepared for just about any environment they might find themselves in. To receive program certification students must complete all classes within a 2-year time frame.
