  2. Hello,
    I want to sign up for the Quickbook and Access classes starting July 1.
    I am a California resident but have been in Brazil for the past 18 months. I will arrive in Santa Ana on July 5, thus I wouldn’t be able to attend the first day of class.

    1. How do I register for these classes?
    2. Does the VBUS260 Word cover just the basics?
    3. Do the classes get full very quickly? VBUS301 Quickbook requires the students to register on the first day of class but I won’t be there. What can I do about this?

    Thank you,

  3. Ok thank u so much

  4. Hi i want to know if i could still register for spring classes for excel

  6. Hi, I have a question about general office clerk certificate.
    can you tell me about class schedules for that?
    I’m going to work for new company and going to study this program at the same time. so, I have to figure out what’s the best option for me.

    – how many days per week do I study to get this certificate?
    – how many hours will it be?
    ( prefered time will be morning and afternoon )

    – how long does It take to get a certificate?
    – how much does It cost me to study this program, I heard this is free class but, what about books?

    Thanks for your answers in advance.

    Have a great day.

    – best regards

    • Dear Tobi.

      There are several courses required for this certificate. Most courses you can complete in the lab where students study independently. The lab is open Monday -Thursday from 8AM-9PM and Friday and Saturday from 8AM-12PM.

      Additional classes may be taken Mondays through Thursdays from 8:00.a.m. to 12:00 p.m. or from 12:00 to 3:00 p.m.

      It could take one year to complete or longer depending upon the amount of time and number of classes taken. There is no charge for the classes or the books.

      We hope to see you this fall.
