This six-week course empowers students to update their computer skills with hands-on instruction. All graduates receive 12 hours Continuing Education credits through Richland College. Classes meet fours hours each day, Monday through Friday. Instructors provide daily lessons in a relaxed environment and allow time for participants to practice new skills at their own pace.
The class uses the most current Microsoft products. It also covers Internet, email systems, resume writing, job applications and sending documents as attachments. Classrooms are fully equipped with computers for each student. During the course students create documents vital to career success such as a resume, sample introduction and thank you letters, and individual budget spreadsheets as well as how to conduct a job search using the Internet. All documents created in class are sent to the student's personal email account for use throughout the job search.
