MACEDON — The Macedon Public Library has partnered with Finger Lakes Community College to offer a series of technology training workshops from 6 to 8 p.m. each Wednesday in September.
Each workshop will have a particular focus. The first will teach participants how to use Microsoft Word to create documents. The second will explain how to use Microsoft Excel to create basic spreadsheets with common formulas. The third will delve into creating presentations using Microsoft PowerPoint. The final workshop will culminate in participants applying the skills they have learned to simulated, real-world situations. There will also be time set aside for asking questions not specifically addressed within the workshops.
This workshop series is aimed at anyone who believes their technology skills need improvement; especially those who are having a difficult time securing employment or advancing in their career due to a lack of required technology skills. Participants who attend all four workshops will receive a certificate of completion from Finger Lakes Community College.
This eight-hour workshop series is free thanks to funding received from Sen. Pam Helming, R-54 of Canandaigua. Also with funding from Helming, the library has laptops for participants to use during the workshop sessions. Participants are asked not to bring their own laptops to the class.
Anyone interested in attending these workshops must call the library to register their attendance. Space is limited to 15 participants, and it is recommended that those wishing to participate call the library at (315) 986-5932 as soon as possible to secure a spot in the class.
