  1. Good morning,

    I had a question regarding the Keyboarding I class. I noticed that the hours on Monday – Thursday are from 8am – 9pm. How exactly does that work? Can you go in at any time for any duration of time or is there a minimum amount that I need to be present in the class?

    Thank you for your assistance,

    Brianna Jaramillo

    • Dear Brianna,

      Yes, you can go in at any time the lab is open for any duration of time. There is no minimum number of hours required per visit. To clarify, Keyboarding I is not a class and not taught by an instructor. Instead, you work independently at your own pace using a book and a computer program in an open lab environment. There are lab instructors available if you get stuck, however these instructors do not teach Keyboarding I.

      Hope we see you for the Spring term which begins on January 15.
