Computer Training for Adults

KRCC_AdultEd_2The Ken-Rock Community Center responds positively to the needs of the community as it continues to grow both in membership and diversity.

Ken-Rock’s University of Adult Education Program, sponsored by the United Way of Rock River Valley will teach you the basics of computers and several key programs people need to know going forward in the first four sessions. If you sign up for the fifth and final session of each class, Ken-Rock will help you prepare a resume, teach you how to store it in the cloud and show you how to access and email the resume. Basic computer education includes Word and learning to navigate the computer.

Best of all, the classes are FREE OF CHARGE. Ken-Rock has completed its Spring class schedule.  For more information or to sign up, call Ken-Rock at 815-398-8864.
