This is often a role that is overlooked by those unaware of what is included in the job which is why those modules are of the utmost importance.

In addition, you will be taught how to run the reception area in an appropriate manner and also how to help your career to develop from being a receptionist to moving up higher in the administrative industry of which this is playing a key role. There is also a module that will teach you how to be a team player.
