Computer basics taught at Terra – News

FREMONT — Connect Ohio has announced Terra State Community College is a partner in the statewide Every Citizen Online broadband training project and is providing free basic computer training to any interested adult.

The free computer and Internet basics course is helping area adults connect and communicate online in ways many people take for granted. The coursework includes six hours of training covering computer basics, an introduction to the Internet and discussions about how broadband can be helpful in daily life.

“The majority of our class participants are also customers to our Job Stores. They are searching for work,” said Bonnie Nusser of Terra and representing the Job Store.

“The Internet is where jobs are posted now, and where you need to go to apply. The days are gone when you got that job on a handshake.”

Being a partner with Connect Ohio and the Every Citizen Online program helps Terra increase much-needed computer literacy skills in its customers.

“The aging workforce is finding that they need to be able to understand how to use a computer,” Nusser said. “That’s reality.”

Classes are offered at the following locations:

» Sandusky County Job Store, 2511 Countryside Drive, Fremont. Registration: 419-332-2169.

» Ottawa County Community Resource Centre, 8043 West Ohio 163, Oak Harbor. Registration: 419-898-3688, ext. 270.

More than 16,000 adults have already participated in the Every Citizen Online training since it launched in late December 2010.

Any interested Ohio adult is eligible to participate in the program geared toward first-time computer and broadband users.
