Job Training Success – Microsoft Office 101

children-1562853_640Our first cohort of individuals enrolled in our 4-week Job Training Class, Microsoft Office 101, which concluded on December 23, 2016.  All of the participants who began the class were able to finish it, and each obtained a certificate of completion to include in their portfolio. Each participant was required to have 3 hours of seat time each week and 2 hours of homework, which every participant completed on time and turned in to our job readiness coach.  Overall, the class was a huge success, and we will continue running this class in the future.
