1.1 BACKGROUND INFORMATION
Secretaries are not born but made, although there are people with the potential of becoming good, effective trained and efficient secretaries. Before anybody can be called a secretary, he or she must have undergone certain trainings but the period of training varies from time to time and depends on the level of operation. In the words the degree of training will determine where the secretary will work. Generally, it is however required, that a person must undergo series of trainings before he/she can be called a qualified secretary.
During the period of training, no matter how short or long it takes, it is expected that all the skills and knowledge required of a secretary to be able to discharge her duties effectively must have been acquired. Having acquired these, the end result is to be able to impact these skills and knowledge into others or make the best use of them in various places where such are needed.
