Computer Skills 101 Class

In today’s modern world, technology is everywhere. We use programs and technology every day to reduce efforts and increase efficiency.

A basic introductory training in word processing, presentation creation, and spreadsheet preparation software will give residents a jumpstart in their job searches. It will also increase their productivity and efficiency at work!

One of the finest examples of such technology is Microsoft Office Suite and Google Suite software. Teaching intermediate to advanced document preparation and other software skills in your community will be beneficial for beginners and advanced users.

Arrange resident seating in the clubhouse or other community area by setting up several computer systems and a projector. Have plenty of outlets and extension cords available and encourage residents to bring along their laptops as well!

Additionally, you can choose to teach the three to four hour basic 101 intro course by hooking your computer up to a big TV and arranging areas to sit.

***TIP*** Provide simple snacks as well to keep brains active. Expect a big turnout!

If you don’t want to offer a 101 course in Excel, Word, and PowerPoint, you can also offer a similar course in the free-to-use software suite of similar Google products (Docs., Sheets, and Slides). All of these softwares are free to use and are simply available to users after setting up a basic Gmail email account.

Either way, both of these software suites will give residents enough tools to manage office work from entry level jobs to the highest management level.

Topics to cover at your event can include:

  1. Word processing

  2. Spreadsheet preparation

  3. Presentation and slides preparation

  4. Email management

  5. Calendar management

  6. and so much more!

After conducting a few free classes, expect to develop a good rapport with your “student” residents! For future events, prepare more space to accommodate larger groups.

You never know, your resident students may even work their way up in skills to be ready to tackle official Microsoft authorized certification! This could generate funds for your community as well and build excitement for ongoing monthly trainings!
