Are you tired of always having to ask someone else to help you with computer tasks, especially your children? Did you learn how to use a computer so long ago and now feel intimidated by their streamlined look and how you access software?
You are not alone! The Linda & Rudy Slucker NCJW/Essex Center for Women offers many different computer classes to help get you up to speed. Whether you are looking for the basics or are ready to learn some advanced skills, the Center runs classes year-round to meet your needs.
After many years of teaching computer classes at the Center, our instructors are still excited about each new class. Students are sometimes apprehensive but always eager to learn. Regardless of their individual situations, they are looking to acquire skills to get a better job, prepare for a volunteer position, or just have knowledge they feel most of their peers already possess.
Recently one student was applying for a job as a playground aide at a local elementary school. One of the job requirements was that she be proficient in Microsoft Word because on rainy days she would be required to help out in the office. Needing to gain this knowledge quickly, she attended the class in Basic Microsoft Word and was tutored in the advanced features she needed to know. She had to pass a proficiency exam and was very happy to learn that she excelled on the test and got the job!
At the Center for Women we encourage everyone to keep on learning and expanding their horizons. Our computer classes will help you become more confident and prepared for today’s world, in and out of the workplace.
