Computer Use & Applications

Can you turn on a PC? Do you know how to save a file? Do you know how to use your mouse and keyboard? Can you create folders? Do you know the difference between hardware and software? If you answered NO to these questions, then the HRD Basic Computer Skills is the class for you.

If you would like to learn more about file management, web browsing, e-mail and basic application software such as Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Access, then browse the classes listed below.
