The World Class Administrative Professional Course
A Truly Unique Program
An effective advanced administrative professionals’ program must blend quality content, outstanding materials, and a high level of group engagement with an agenda that affords participants time for reflection and introspection. The World-Class Administrative Professionals APC Certification Course accomplishes all this. This unique three-day course advances the participant’s competency in the six essential areas of concentration outlined in the course prospectus.
P.A. Douglas & Associates is well positioned to present this program. For more than forty-eight years, we have consistently provided the highest standard of excellence in administrative and executive assistant training.
No other course or event offers the comprehensive advanced program as does the World-Class Administrative Professionals APC Certification Course. You will return to work energized, refreshed and motivated, armed with a a new set of tools and a greater ability to face the ever-changing demands of your profession.
The World-Class Administrative Professionals Course is our senior program. Highly-targeted, the course affords the opportunity to better partner with your boss, set realistic expectations, as well as influence and motivate other team members. You will also develop your emotional intelligence, communication and decision-making skills to a remarkable degree.
Management increasingly relies on the administrative professional to organize the office, project an appropriate professional image and perhaps most importantly solve problems. At this advanced World-Class Administrative Professionals APC Certification Course, you will learn how to communicate directly, but with greater discretion and diplomacy by developing winning strategies for dealing with different and sometimes difficult people.
You will significantly enhance your ability to plan and organize projects successfully and most importantly, develop the essential skills and best practices of a world-class administrative professional thereby enhancing your professional reputation, increasing your value to your organization and enriching your life.
Finally, the residential nature of this seminar will provide you with many opportunities to engage in valuable interchange outside of the formal sessions affording each participant with a unique opportunity to consider the focal topics in much greater depth than is possible at a one or two-day "hometown" seminar.
And Seattle is a perfect venue...
There is so much to see and do in the Emerald City
Get acquainted with Seattle's historic waterfront from the water side of the wharf on the Elliott Bay cruise from Seattle Harbor. This cruise follows the shoreline and provides up-close views of area attractions. There are plenty of interesting features around the bay: Alki Beach, the Space Needle, the Great Wheel, the Seattle Aquarium and the Museum of Pop Culture.(Previously known as Paul Alan's Experience Music Project). Stroll through world-famous Pikes Market. The Westin is also in the center of Seattle's shopping and restaurant district. Seattle is about culture, besides the show-stopping Chihuly Garden and Glass Seattle boasts 200 art galleries and five museums, One being the 'Museum of Flight' where you can explore over 160 air and spacecraft including, Air Force One, the Concorde and a a Space Shuttle. Go underground and explore the
subterranean pathways that were built more than 120 years ago, learn why these spaces were built, and how they have been used (and misused) over the years.
Seattle has the best seafood. Salmon, oysters, tuna – if you name it, it’s better in Seattle. And that includes chowder (step aside, New England). And coffee, coffee, coffee: Although Seattle is famously home to Starbucks and other well-known brands, the big chains make way for a smaller coffee culture to exist. On nearly every street there are neighborhood coffee shops to visit, all with that Seattle vibe.
Last but not least, there are tremendous views of the natural beauty of the Pacific Northwest. Puget Sound surrounded by majestic Olympic Mountains lie to the west, solitary Mount Rainier to the southeast, and the inviting Cascade Range to the east
Seattle is a fantastic venue for the World-Class Administrative Professional Course and the Seattle Westin is in the heart of it all.
