In the world in which we live computer knowledge is critical. Computer knowledge is a very important aspect of our literacy training preparation. In the working world, employers hire people who have the ability to use PCs and many are disqualified who don’t have at least basic computer skills. Therefore, it is becoming more and more significant for individuals who work and study to improve their knowledge and capabilities in using computer technologies.
As individuals, our world has advanced where the use of computers also affects our personal lives. Learning computer skills can open a whole new world. Many of the education institutions, state and federal government, and businesses are turning to online communication, which includes classes, testing, completion of forms, job applications and much more. We do everything we can to help improve the computer skills of those who come to St. Luke N.E.W. Life Center. Computers help us to improve everyday efforts, find jobs, and information.
