Computer Lab

Registered students at Employment Skills Center have access to our 16 station computer lab. Students use the lab to search for jobs, create resumes and cover letters, engage in math and reading practice, and develop overall computer literacy. The computer lab can also be used to help students develop skills in the following areas: basic keyboarding and mouse skills, email, navigating the Internet, Microsoft Word, and Excel. Computer practice enriches the learning experience for our students and builds valuable skills for employment and higher education.
