…is the motto of the Computer Training Lab in room 104 of the Cross Office Building! In the first year, participants in the Lab’s courses have affirmed that we’re on the right track, routinely reporting that they are pleased to get more work and productivity out of their computers.
“Excellent course – enjoyed the entire day!”
“All these courses are great and needed by all State staff!”
“Pace was excellent”
“Excellent instructor who adjusted her teaching to make sure all the students learned despite varying levels of knowledge”
“… very worthwhile”
Courses The Lab offers classes in the use of the Microsoft Office Suite, including MS Word, Outlook, Excel, Access, PowerPoint, and Publisher. Courses on Dreamweaver MX, HTML 4.0, and Visual Basic are also available.
In the last quarter, 15 new courses were developed and scheduled to help meet the needs of State employees. The Lab’s website now shows courses available in the current quarter (through December 2003). Next quarter’s classes (January through March 2004) will be up on the website within the month. Details on all these courses are listed on the Lab’s website at http://www.maine.gov/bhr/statetng/comptng/index.html. Please check out the range of courses offered in November and December – we’d love to have you participate in any class of your choosing. Course fees to cover the costs of keeping the Lab up and running are also available on the website.
Enrollment The enrollment form on the website may be filled out and faxed, or participants with access to the MFASIS Training Management System may enroll fully on-line.
Leasing and Charters The Lab is available to lease by others for a day-rate of $300, or after-hours @ $125. We are also happy to arrange for special “charters” of the room whereby we deliver a standard course to 12 students, for a fee equivalent to 11 students, in order to assist departments in getting training for whole staffs.
