Drop by lab to assess and build computer skills

Are you looking to improve your computer skills, but aren’t sure which class to take? Or, maybe you want to brush up on a specific skill by taking a self-paced online tutorial? Another lab option is to begin to learn Microsoft Office 2010.

If so, be sure to take advantage of this month’s free computer skills assessment/elearning open lab:

Thursday, June 23
2 – 4 p.m.
Room 13B, Public Service Center, 250 S. 4th St.

Taking an assessment can help you identify hidden knowledge gaps and determine which training session is most appropriate for your skill development needs. You can test as many or as few skill assessment segments as you wish. Be sure to allow 15 to 30 minutes for each assessment.

After youve completed the assessment, your assessment report will automatically print on the computer lab printer. With that personalized information at hand, youll be better prepared to choose the class youd most benefit from. Throughout the year, free training is offered on Access, Excel, Outlook, PowerPoint, Visio and Word. (To view computer classes, visit HRIS and then click on "Learning and Development.")

Another option is stopping by the lab for elearning. You can take self-paced online computer tutorials to learn new computer concepts, refresh your skills, focus your learning on specific areas and learn at your own pace.

To participate, just stop by during lab hours — no advance registration is required.
