WKCTC Partnership with Microsoft

Workforce Solutions at West Kentucky Community and Technical College (WKCTC) continues to partner with the Microsoft Corporation to offer a Windows 7 continuing education program and students are benefitting from the partnership.

Paducah resident Ann Denton took the Introduction to Window 7 class last month and was pleased with the results. I thoroughly enjoyed the class, and it was exactly what I needed, she said. I came away with more knowledge about Windows 7; and I look forward to taking the other courses being offered.

The Windows 7 courses begin again on November 8 in the Emerging Technology Center (ETC).

Microsofts My PC Series helps students of all ages learn new computer skills for home or work. Student can learn a variety of getting started PC topics through the Microsoft specialized curriculum that provides a unique, jargon-free approach to teaching.
The program consists of short, hands-on workshops covering PC fundamentals such as navigating Windows 7 and using free Windows Live tools for photo editing, social networking and more, as well as some more in-depth classes for home and business users.

The following courses will be offered in the ETC, 1:30-4:30 p.m.
My PC: Getting Started with Windows 7 Workshop, November 8
My PC: Creative Photo Slideshows Workshop, November 11
My PC: Connecting with Friends amp; Family Workshop, November 16
My PC: Digital Photo Editing Workshop, November 18
Introduction to Windows 7 is also being offered November 8, 11, 16, and 18 in the ETC from 6:00-9:00 p.m. Students must attend all fours sessions to complete the class.

Windows 7 will be installed on all new computers, said Kevin ONeill, WKCTC coordinator of continuing education. Enrolling in these workshops is a great way to get a jump start on navigating through the Windows 7 operating system.
