Q&A with Arleen Orland of Santa Clarita Technology & Career Center
What is the most applicable class you offer?

Microsoft® Office is most popular, which includes Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Outlook. Once you learn one the Microsoft Office programs the others are easy. Whether you are a beginner or looking to advance in your job, there is a class suited to your needs.

Do you offer any classes for certification?
We will be offering classes for preparation to become a Certified Microsoft® Office User Specialist (MOUS). After the class, you will need to take a test and pass to attain the certification.

Do you offer classes for seniors?
Yes, beginning, intermediate and advanced classes. I taught seniors at College of the Canyons for almost two years. Some of my students had never used a computer yet after they finished the class, they were confident users.

What are the benefits of technology training?
Better skills to help you move ahead in your job - or get a job! Communicating with family and friends near and far. Learning new technology for your home business is a plus, too.
