I have lived in shelters and now have my own place. This training has helped me feel more confident. I have learned to type better and work at a pace I can learn at. God Bless all those who brought such nice people in this class and a great instructor/teacher.”
“If you are wanting to learn new skills or upgrade your clerical knowledge, this is the place to come. Starting a second career because of injury, job cutbacks or layoffs? Stop by Tri-County Literacy Council. I was injured at my work in Health Care, after 25 years. I was not ready to retire at age 60. I decided to retrain for a second career in clerical. I can still work with the knowledge that I previously attained and incorporate it into this new career.”
