The unemployed or under-employed have an opportunity to gain workplace computer skills through a course being offered at the St. Cloud Public Library.
The Northstar Basic Computer Skills course includes six online modules that show an individual's ability to perform basic computer skills. Individuals who pass the assessments may also earn certificates demonstrating competence. The modules cover:
- Basic Computer Skills
- Word Processing (Word)
- Windows OS, and
- Mac OS
St. Cloud Public Library is offering a four-week series of one-hour classes titled Welcome to Computers. The course is tied to the online modules in order to help individuals master the material. Learners can then be tested and earn a certificate through ISD 742's adult basic education department, free of charge. The first series of classes begins Tuesday, Aug. 5. Attendance will be limited so preregistration is required.
If someone you know would benefit from this course, please tell them about it. More information is available at the Information desk at the library.
