Also included are sample fact sheets pertaining to business and office occupations; sample student handouts explaining business and office occupations education course offerings; and newspaper and radio releases to announce course offerings, registration times, employment and career opportunities, various technological advances that will have an impact on business and office occupations, and special events related to business and office occupations education programs.
