Take Advantage… Learn the Latest Computer Software: August 29 or September 13
Getting something for nothing is hard to come by these days. However, the Montgomery College “Course Tasting Series” is designed to do just that. This complimentary two-hour course, offered at both the campus on College Park Drive and the college’s Conroe Center, gives an overview of the latest computer software that one should know in order to operate in the high-tech digital world of the 21st century.
The free “tasting” at Montgomery College’s campus (3200 College Park Drive) will be held on Wednesday, August 29, from 6-8 p.m. in building B, room 108. The session at the Conroe Center will be held Thursday, September 13, from 6-8 p.m. Conroe Center is located at 102 Longview Street, just east of the FM 1314/Highway 105 intersection, one mile east of downtown Conroe.
The course is designed to introduce potential students to the basic skills learned in the college’s Intro to Computers, Windows, and Microsoft application courses. Attendees will have an opportunity to try hands-on exercises that touch on the functionality they’ll learn in the actual courses.
“This is a great way to see first-hand the kinds of useful skills that come with learning a new software package, such as Word, Excel, or PowerPoint,” said Linda Head, dean of continuing education and academic workforce support . “Making this a free event only adds to the value, so we encourage everyone to consider it.”
Additionally, participants will learn the unique benefits of continuing education courses and how they can use the CEUs they earn to satisfy professional continuing education requirement or earn certificates of proficiency in important skill sets.
