“I returned to school because I knew nothing about computers, and I realized that I had to learn how to use computers, and I needed to improve my computer skills. I also knew that in order to progress at work, I needed to have updated computer skills. I only need to complete Microsoft Excel and Microsoft Word, and I will achieve my goal of obtaining the General Office Clerk State Certificate.” by Tam Sam, Student, Career Technical Education Program
