Program Objective

The program commences with 600 hours of intensive VESL instruction. After completing the VESL component, the student is introduced to software that is in high demand in any business dealing with word processing, spreadsheet data analysis, customized presentations and electronic mail messaging. The student applies knowledge learned in the classroom to office accounting procedures, along with specific professional software utilities.

Hands-on training in the above mentioned areas is done based on theories of computer operations and bookkeeping data processing. A main feature of the program is experiencing integration between generic and specific skills based on intercommunication and interaction between different types of office computer applications to provide full coverage of bookkeeping and accounting needs arising from a realistic business environment.

The following applies to all above mentioned courses:

Completion Time: Four Terms in 15 weeks each (1500 hours, 60 weeks).

Sessions: Full time sessions are available in the morning and in the evening. Students attend classes 25 hours per week.

Program Readiness: Students are required to take Metropolitan Learning Institute’s CELSA and/or Wonderlic Test to determine if they possess the reasoning skills that are necessary for intensive study. Any applicant who scores below the minimum cutoff mark in any given test is advised to reconsider his/her career training choice.

Entrance Requirements:

1. High school diploma or equivalent, evaluated by nationally-recognized translation/ evaluation service if issued outside the USA, Puerto Rico or Guam. Note that some HS completion certificates such as an IEP may not be acceptable-the school’s Financial Aid office will make a determination in each case.

2. Each applicant for 1500 hour programs with an VESL component will be tested to establish his or her need for Intermediate VESL instruction before enrollment, as well as for quantitative skills. To qualify, applicants must achieve a minimum score of 254 on the quantitative part of the Wonderlic test and also achieve a 97 or greater score on the CELSA (English) test. Each applicant for 1500 hour programs without an VESL component will be tested to establish his or her reading, writing and quantitative skills. To qualify, applicants must achieve minimum scores of 200/210 on the Verbal/Quantitative parts of the WBST, respectively with a verified foreign High School Diploma.



Applicants with a U.S. HSD or TASC/GED are exempt from this testing.

3. At the end of the Intermediate ESL VIII course (if applicable), students who receive a minimum of 70 (C) in their Level VIII ESL course and are in good academic standing will begin the computer-based portion of their program.

4. Any student who fails to achieve the minimum passing grades in their ESL levels must repeat appropriate units of Intermediate/Advanced ESL (Remedial placement will be decided by the Campus Director and will consider the student’s circumstances on a case-by-case basis).
