A few words from our learners

Valerie’s Message – Listen

“During my severance period and job search I came across TCLC. I actually have taken many courses at TCLC. However, (Microsoft) PowerPoint was my favourite. I never realized how powerful this program is and can be. And it certainly is inspiring me. (Am) looking to possibly start my own side business and the content and teacher of the PowerPoint course gave me some great ideas to create logos for business cards, presentations, etc.”
– Former Learner

“… take advantage of a professionally-given course that will add value to your skills and abilities. (I) have not used PowerPoint since 1998 and was always intimidated by job ads that stated “experience with PowerPoint”. Now, I feel well-versed and qualified to use PowerPoint which is empowering.”
– Ron Evans

“I went to Job Zone. They told me I had to upgrade my skills. This training has shown me that I am still capable of learning at the age of 62 and I found that I CAN and AM ABLE to use these skills in an office setting. It (PowerPoint course) has really improved my confidence – enough so that I plan on running in the municipal election, this fall, as a councillor.”
– Jo-Ann Periard

“I have seen the (outdoor Tri-County Literacy Council) sign driving by several times and always wanted to call but never did. Fearful that “free” was a catch to draw people in and then there would be some fee attached- then came the day. I called 🙂 I was proud of myself. I took the step and made a change… can’t wait to do more courses. The course (Microsoft PowerPoint) made me feel more comfortable with computers. I now see where Microsoft PowerPoint can be used.”
– Julie Bissonette-Dubeau

“You will love taking a course with TCLC! The staff are all kind and approachable. The (Microsoft) PowerPoint class is informative and fun! I learned so much in such a short time. I feel very confident in my skills… I was recently working and trying to use PowerPoint and I was having trouble getting the program to do what I wanted. When I received a call about the program, it was perfect timing. I now feel confident I could use PowerPoint in a work environment.”
