Jeff State offers one-day computer classBy Heather Buckner Published 3:27pm Tuesday, May 8, 2012
The Clanton campus of Jefferson State Community College will be offering its first ever one-day class May 24.
The class runs from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. and will focus on Microsoft Word and Outlook for anyone looking to become more efficient in those programs.
Kay Potter, Jeff State’s Director of Community and Corporate Education, thinks the class is a great opportunity for adults to sharpen their technological skills.
“It’s convenient and quick—not like committing to a full semester,” said Potter, making the class “perfect for working adults seeking personal and professional development who normally wouldn’t have the time.”
Potter stressed the relevance of the one-day class: “Since older generations did not grow up using computers, many over the age of 40 were self-taught. But even if you feel comfortable with Microsoft Works, there is always something new to learn.”
Jeff State is anticipating a class of anywhere from five to 15 students. The cost is $129, and registration ends May 22.
If everything goes well, Potter says they are considering offering a one-day Excel class; Jeff State also welcomes suggestions from the community for future classes.
