Lewiston Adult ed will offer a free course on technology in the workplace
LEWISTON — A free in-person adult computer course, due to start in May, aims to help students earn professional certifications for future employment.
Lewiston Adult Education offers a Workplace Applied Technology class in partnership with Androscoggin and Oxford County Adult Education Programs. Greg Yates will be the teacher, according to a press release from the education program.
Upon successful completion of the course, students can earn an Internet and Computing Core Certification (IC3), WorkReady credential, and Digital Course Completion Certificate.
Employers recognize IC3 certifications as the global standard for digital literacy. It also validates a candidate’s computer skills and serves as the basis for obtaining other certifications.
The course is scheduled to start on Tuesday May 10. Applied Technology in the Workplace will take place from 3:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays.
“It’s an all-in-one, integrated course, designed with you and your career success at the heart of it,” said Lewiston Director of Adult Education Jen Tiner.
Classes will take place simultaneously at four locations:
• Lewiston Adult Education Adult Learning Centre, Longley School, 145 Birch St., Lewiston;
• RSU/MSAD44 Adult and Community Education, Telstar Middle School, 284 Walkers Mills Road, Bethel;
