Work Essentials

Work Essentials is a course designed to help students transition into and succeed in today’s workforce. From writing a good resume to making a good impression during an interview, students will be equipped with the resources they need to find their dream job. The course then walks students through important skills needed to keep that dream job such as problem solving, professionalism, and good communication.

Computer Essentials

Computer Essentials begins by teaching students the basic skills they need to navigate a computer and the internet such as keyboarding, opening and closing windows, scrolling, and navigating menus. It then moves on to more advanced skills such as communication, word processing, and digital citizenship. Upon completion, students will have obtained the core skills they need to be confident computer-based test takers and more importantly, successful employees.

Money Essentials

Money Essentials is a course designed to help students take back control of their financial situation. Through real-life scenarios, students will learn the money management skills necessary to make smart financial decisions. From creating a budget and setting financial goals, to obtaining credit and applying for loans, this course will give students the tools necessary for a financially stable future.

The courses ends with a final assessment. Upon passing this final assessment, students can download a Certificate of Achievement to show employers they have mastered these skills.
