Val-Tech, YES Center & Chamber partner to offer computer class
Nashville, Ga.— Valdosta Technical College, the Berrien County Collaborative's, YES Center, and Berrien County Chamber of Commerce have partnered to bring an introduction to computer class to the Berrien Academy campus beginning July 17. The 50 hour course will cover the basics of Microsoft Office Suite (Word, Outlook, Excel and Access). The class will meet on Tuesday and Thursday nights for 3 hours a night. The HOPE Grant covers the cost of the class including tuition and registration fees.
“We are thrilled to welcome Valdosta Tech to our facility,” said Matt Jansen, director Berrien County YES Center. “Offering technical classes locally is a huge asset to our community, especially with the rising cost to commute to school. We are pleased to be a partner in the effort and look forward to hosting more classes in the future.”
