What is ASDA?

Note: The next intake for this program will begin on March 15, 2022. We will begin contacting participants to join the next intake in January 2022. For more office administration training options in the meantime, please check out our Clerical & Computer Skills Training program.

Administrative Support for a Digital Alberta (ASDA) is an online, 14-week employment training program for permanent residents and naturalized Canadian citizens interested in pursuing careers as administrative professionals. Administrative professionals (sometimes known as executive assistants or receptionists) fill some of the most important roles in any organization, and ASDA will prepare you with the computer and software skills, workplace soft skills, and job search skills to begin your career in this field.

ASDA is offered in two parts:

  1. 12 weeks of online classes offered every Tuesday (3 hours) and Thursday (3 hours) evening;
  2. An 80-hour volunteer work experience practicum, which provides work experience for your resume.
