 Imagine Academy Computer Training

Local residents needing to learn new information technology skills for their current job, a new career or just wanting to add some skills for personal enrichment can do so through Cathlamet Public Library thanks to a partnership between the Washington State Library and Microsoft.

Microsoft’s Imagine Academy program offers free training to participating Washington residents to help prepare them for jobs and careers in a global economy that is becoming more tech-dependent.

Cathlamet Public Library patrons will be able to access 250 courses offered on three basic levels: digital literacy, for those who need basic skills such as using a mouse or sending emails; e-learning courses that support Microsoft Office suites; and courses leading to professional technology certifications. Certification is available but at cost to the participant.

Librarian Carol Blix invites patrons to come and sign up for Imagine Academy, which can also be accessed on home computers that have the necessary software installed./sites/
