A true entry level computer education course. Brought to you by Goodwill Industries of Southwestern Michigan and Google. We are teaming up to bring computer education to those that have not had experience using a computer. You will leave this 16 week course with general computer operation knowledge. Our instructors will take you step by step through the processes. We’ll go over the basics of turning on the computer, how to use the mouse, and keyboard. Then we’ll go over how to navigate the desktop, how to use basic software, and the internet. This foundational course will leave you feeling more confident than you have ever been.
This course is for the beginner that has little to no experience using a computer before. Someone that has felt too intimidated to even approach a computer and too nervous to ask for help.
Grow with Google is a program to help our community become more familiar with using a computer. Computer use will increase job prospects and give you new learning opportunities.
Want to practice what you've learned? We have a computer lab open Wednesdays for our students to use. Practicing new skills is the best way to retain it for later use, and we want you to succeed!
