Improving Your Job Skills for Better Employment
Almost every job these days requires some level of computer knowledge. Our introductory courses are for people who have no computer experience or who need a little extra training.
You’ll learn the basics of how to operate a computer, including typing (keyboarding), Internet and email. Later, you can take classes in Microsoft Word and Excel to learn to create simple spreadsheets and documents like a resume. We also offer online job search classes and have resources avalible for students looking for additional training in Microsoft Products.
Students who successfully pass these courses will receive Continuing Education Credits from Frederick Community College.
