Student Testimonials

Computer skills Workshop student Geraldine Carabin

After being out of the workforce for the last few years, this course enabled me to rebuild my confidence and skills that would make it possible for me to look for gainful employment in the future. Even though I was familiar with both Microsoft Word and Excel previously, these courses taught me a more in-depth understanding of both.

I would highly recommend these courses to anyone. The instructors were amazing! They were very knowledgeable, patient and very willing to help anyone that needed it. Not only did I enjoy going to class each and every day, I also met some wonderful classmates.
