A few words from our learners

“Tri-County has a way of reaching out to learners, teaching and explaining in simple terms, and allowing enough time for repetition and practice, making sure the lesson is understood. As an older client, this has been very beneficial, since I might be slower to understand. I am part of the generation that needs to catch up with the Electronic Age, it is a very challenging time for us. Tri-County offers the programs that we need, free of charge and accessible. What a gift to our region!!!”
-Monique Duffy

“Tri-County Literacy Council is a wonderful way to either learn for the first time (beginner level) or upgrade your computer skills. The instructors are extremely knowledgeable and friendly. They make the learner want to work to achieve the end result (i.e. learn the program). This training provided me with the confidence needed to attach files when sending emails, adding hyperlinks, using the calendar, tasks and address book (features). I am looking for employment and am upgrading my skills. The training here is very helpful in achieving my goals.”
-Jo-Ann Periard

“The course was helpful. I had to learn the basics of e-mail. The small class and knowledgeable instructor was so good. I needed to upgrade my skills and learning to use the computer is essential now. It is a powerful tool to communicate and access information.”

“This class was great. I enjoyed the course because it went slow enough for me to comprehend the computer. This opened up my horizons for learning and for future jobs. It made me feel confident enough to use computers and help me research other job opportunities.”
