It’s easier than ever to get plugged into the digital age.
The Tallahassee Community College Gadsden Center will off Computer and Internet Literacy (CGS 1060) as a course from Feb. 13 through May 5.  The class is offered on Mondays and Wednesday from 5:30 to 7:45 p.m.
It’s a four-credit course, and those interested in enrolling in the course must already be a TCC student or apply to the school.
Course topics include: computer hardware and software fundamentals, key productivity applications including the Microsoft Office suite, and effective internet communication and browsing.
Desiree Gorman, TCC Gadsden’s manager, said anyone interested in taking the course can come to the center and get help applying to TCC if they’re not already enrolled and sign up for the course.  
“If you’re local, it’s a way to take the course without having to go to Tallahassee,” Gorman said.
Gorman said the course goes hand-in-hand with IC3 certification, which can be obtained in the course.  She said these skills will promote readiness for college studies and for the workforce.
