Both courses will begin on Monday, Jan. 31. The beginner’s course will focus on basic computer skills, such as emailing, basic programs, saving and deleting, scanning files/pictures, as well as what to look for when buying a personal computer.
The intermediate course will teach participants how to utilize the programs Excel and Powerpoint.
Both classes will meet at the high school on Monday evenings from 5:30-7:30 beginning Jan. 31 and ending March 7. Each class will accept 20 participants and will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis.
