“I didn’t know computers could be this much fun.”

What is ENCORE? ENCORE is a hands-on, self-paced training program. You follow written materials and receive help from a teacher as needed. It is not a traditional lecture class where you have to be at the same point as everyone else.

What do you learn? Select the modules you want and opt out of those you don’t:
Career Development
Job Seeking Skills
General Math & English
Office Machines & Telephones
Keyboarding
Internet Basics & Email
Microsoft Office Programs:
Word, Excel, Outlook, PowerPoint, Access

Anyone who is 50 years or older can participate. You are also welcome if you want to learn computer skills for personal use.

How long does it take? As long as necessary for you to get the skills!

How much does it cost?  There is no charge for tuition – just an annual $10 registration fee. You can use a classroom copy of the textbook or purchase your own.

When is it held?  Mondays, Tuesdays, and Fridays
8 am – 10 am or 10 am – 12 pm
