Power Up

Computer Course for Women

When:   Septempter 24, October 1, & October 8

    Where:  Selkirk & District Learning Centre 

 511 Robinson Ave., Selkirk, MB

   Cost:     $40.00

Power Up your skills

Power Up teaches Manitoba women the basics of using a computer. From turning the machine on to typing a word document to accessing the Internet. Your Power Up instructor will take you through it so you can understand how to make the computer work for you.

Power Up for opportunity

It is estimated that at least basic computer skills are needed in two-thirds of jobs in Manitoba - twice as many as 10 years ago. If you want to try something new - perhaps a job with more challenge, better pay or more responsibility - the skills you learn in Power Up can increase the opportunities available to you, and help you reach your goals.

Power Up for options

The Power Up course will leave you feeling more confident using a computer. You may even feel inspired to continue on to take more advanced courses. Regardless of your goals or ambitions, you will be more self-assured and comfortable with technology. In short, you will be "powered up" with more knowledge, information and options.

For more information or to sign up for the computer course call 482-2111, or email reception@mts.net.
