Description of Service

Students are taught in a small group setting, ensuring they receive one to one attention from the instructor. Classes are held at Capabilities’ offices. Each student works with the instructor to develop an individualized training plan that meets their vocational needs and skill level. Students are able to apply their newly learned skills to case-based business exercises.

Computer skills training is available in either a small group of two plus people or one on one training with one instructor and one student. Training covers basic functional computer skills needed for today’s competitive world. The actual software applications and skills taught, and well as the length of time in class, will depend on the need, referral, and vocational goal of each person served. Some of the software and programs that can be taught (but are not limited to) are: Microsoft Operating System (Windows 7 and/or Windows 8), Microsoft Office (Word, Excel, Outlook, PowerPoint, and Access), Accessibility Programs (Dragon Naturally Speaking, ZoomText, MAGIC, JAWS, WYNN), and QuickBooks. Other programs can be taught. Students, teachers, and counselors chose programs that will be taught at the beginning of the course. Baseline skills determine skill levels taught.
