Need a job? We can help you prepare.
These days, employers require employees to accomplish many of their normal, daily duties by way of a computer. So, many jobs require basic to advanced computer user skills. Goodwill Industries of Northwest Texas offers you the chance to learn these essential workplace skills. Our basic course is designed to be very user-friendly and specifically for people who have never used a computer before. If you already have some computer knowledge, intermediate classes might be a good fit for you. For those seeking to sharpen their knowledge further, advance classes are also available. Classes are free and will give you the opportunity to compete in today’s work environment to land your dream job or enhance your pay at your current place of employment.
