News Education One Dozen Who Care Inc. sponsors workshops, seminars

One Dozen Who Care Inc. (ODWC) is offering the following workshops:

— Do you know how to use Microsoft Word or do you just know how to type? Knowing how to type and knowing Microsoft Word are two different things. Have you been using Microsoft Word for years, but are still using the space bar to format your paragraphs? Are you typing page numbers at the top or bottom of your page and wondering why they can’t stay where you put them? Proper formatting is not only at the heart of getting the most out of this powerful program, but directly tied to you being an efficient, valuable employee at your place of work. In this three-hour workshop, you will put to use formatting tools that will change you from a “typist” to a Microsoft Word “power-user.” The workshop will be held Wednesday, Feb. 6, 9:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Cost $20.

— Introduction to Microsoft Excel - Is Microsoft Excel the one program on your computer that you have successfully avoided like the plague? Have you been using Microsoft Excel just for “data entry?” At first glance, this spreadsheet program can appear intimidating. After attending the Intro to Microsoft Excel workshop you will learn how to use simple formulas, and create and customize spreadsheets and charts that represent everything from your personal music library to your household or small business expenses. You will wonder how you ever lived without it. Wednesday, Feb. 13, 9:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Cost $20. Even though the Microsoft classes are introductory, basic knowledge of the mouse and keyboard are required.

— Facebook - What Security Options Do I Have? Wednesday, Feb. 13, 2 to 4:30 p.m. Cost $20.

Registration is required. Call Alice Blanton at (828)369-2273 or (828)361-1941 to register. Four students must register to hold the class.
