Individuals interested in employment in office technology can increase their chances for employment by completing 105 hours of non-credit courses leading to a continuing education certificate in office and computer technology from Wor-Wic Community College.

Students interested in earning the certificate have up to three years to complete a required 30-hour course called “Introduction to Personal Computers and Computer Applications” and 75 additional hours of course work in five areas: Windows, word processing, spreadsheets, presentation and graphics, and Internet/e-mail. Each area has a specified minimum number of hours, but students can select from a variety of courses offered within each category. The first section of the required course begins on Wednesday, Jan. 21, from 1 to 4 p.m., at the college campus on the corner of Route 50 and Walston Switch Road in Salisbury. Other day and evening, and Salisbury and Berlin sections, begin as late as Feb. 9.

The 105 hours of instruction can also be completed by taking an all-in-one course called “Computers in the Workplace: Word Processing and Spreadsheets,” which is being offered on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, Jan. 26 though April 2, from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., at the college campus.
