Valdosta Tech, YES Center & Chamber partner to offer computer class PDF Print E-mail

 Nashville, Ga.— Valdosta Technical College, the Berrien County Collaborative YES Center, and Berrien County Chamber of Commerce have partnered to bring an Introduction to Computer class to the Berrien Academy campus beginning July 17.  The 50 hour course will cover the basics of Microsoft Office Suite (Word, Outlook, Excel and Access). This class is a credit course that is required for every diploma and degree program at Valdosta Tech. If a potential student has been out of the classroom for sometime it is the ideal course to take with no admission test required. The class will meet on Tuesday and Thursday nights for 3 hours a night. The HOPE Grant covers the cost of the class including tuition and registration fees.

               “We are thrilled to welcome Valdosta Tech to our facility,” said Matt Jansen, director Berrien County Collaborative YES Center.  “Offering technical classes locally is a huge asset to our community, especially with the rising cost to commute to school.  We are pleased to be a partner in the effort and look forward to hosting more classes in the future.” 

             “Valdosta Tech is honored to be part of this partnership and fully committed to Berrien County. We would like to thank the Chamber and YES Center for their progressive leadership and willingness to help us bring classes to the citizens of Berrien County. The goal of Valdosta Tech is to have at least 5 classes available by fall quarter with all courses being easily transferable to VTC programs, said Angela Crance, Vice President of Economic Development at Valdosta Tech.”
