Keyboarding Classes

Keyboarding — Beginning
Great keyboarding skills are essential for efficiency on the job. Learn proper finger placement, correct posture, hand and arm position, and proper key stroking to keyboard faster with fewer errors. This is a great course to prepare for other computer courses or to meet the speed requirement for our own Medical Assistant Program. No class on 2/20 or 5/29 (class meets on Friday that week to make up time). No class during Spring break 4/3-4/7. Register now >
