Who knew! We’ve offered this class before and got a reasonable response. But the current MS Excel class, with room for 14 people, has more than 50 additional people on the waiting list! And the calls keep coming! We are adding two extra sessions to handle those on the waiting list.
A recent informal poll on our Facebook page shows that upgrading job skills is really important in our community. That probably explains the interest.
We now have an opportunity to offer instruction in Excel and other Microsoft programs through Oasis. Microsoft provides the instructors’ and students’ manuals, for both long (12 hour) and short (2 hour) classes. Therefore the amount of staff time needed to prepare for the classes is dramatically reduced. We are just beginning to receive and become familiar with these materials. Stay tuned.
