VGCC Offers Job Training, Office Assistant Class At Franklin Campus
A new class to be held at Vance-Granville Community College’s Franklin County Campus will train unemployed and underemployed workers for better jobs and will provide entry-level computer training for office assistants.
The 75-hour class will be held Monday-Friday, Oct. 22-Dec. 13, on the campus on N.C. 56 west of Louisburg. Classes will be held from 8:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.
On Mondays and Wednesdays, the Human Resources Development division of VGCC will conduct employability skills training. This will assess individuals’ assets and limitations, develop positive self-concepts, communications and employability skills, and make prospective workers aware of the impact of information technology in the workplace.
Keyboarding and word processing classes will be held Tuesdays and Thursdays. This curriculum will prepare individuals for entry-level jobs in computer operations. It will teach fundamentals of Windows, including basic mouse operations, menu items, toolbars and organizing, deleting and renaming files. Students will be taught to create documents, including those including graphics.
Human Resources Development will also offer job placement assistance and support services.
The Human Relations skill training is free to eligible persons. Those who only want to take the computer/office assistant training on Tuesdays and Thursdays can do so by paying a nominal fee.
Registration for the class will be held from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 18, at the Franklin County Campus.
