For the past few months, Five County Vocational Systems has been offering a computer course in Tamms entitled "Eliminating the Digital Divide". The course is designed to allow adult students to become more familiar with computers and their various programs and applications, while allowing the students to work at his/her own pace.

Some students sign-up for the class to receive assistance with writing a resume, essay, or newsletter. Students can learn about Microsoft Office or other computer software in order to meet a job requirement or to just become better skilled for today's job market.

Other students take the course in order to learn how to use their computer better; for personal or entertainment purposes. Students may want to learn how to use the internet, e-mail, download or upload photographs, music, and files. This course can help teach the skills needed to buy, sell or create a small business on eBay.

Students may also be interested in learning about computerized embroidery, a course offered once a week at the Tamms location. The class teaches students how to use machines to embroider designs and names on shirts, towels, and other items. The class offers students the information that they need to make unique items for family or customers.

We are still enrolling students for this course and would enjoy the opportunity to work with you. The class size is small and the environment is friendly. Students learn at their own pace.

The embroidery class meets Fridays from 1:00 PM to 3:00 PM. We currently offer computer classes on Tuesdays from 8:30 AM to 12:00 PM and from 12:30 PM to 2:30 PM; and Thursday mornings from 8:30 AM to 11:30 AM.

We are working on a new spring schedule and welcome suggestions on times that would be more convenient for you.

Please feel free to stop by the Tamms location or call us at (618) 747-2703 and tell us what days and times would be more convenient for you. Thank you and hope to see you in class!
