POWELL, Wyoming — Area residents wanting to improve their computer or software skills have two local training opportunities in October through the Northwest College Worland Center for Training and Development.
A four-part class covering the basics of Adobe’s Creative Cloud version of InDesign will meet four consecutive Monday evenings beginning Oct. 5. Instructor Stacey Utterback said students will start with fundamental concepts and terminology and then create documents, learning to place text and graphics, create custom color swatches and more. They’ll also deal with master pages, multi-page documents, styles, threaded text frames, grouping objects and layers, printing, printing presets, creating PDFs and packaging documents for commercial printing.
The $112 cost includes a manual.
A Computer Basics class, offered in one-hour sessions on four Tuesday evenings Oct. 6-27, is designed for people with limited or no computer skills. Instructor Kaitlyn Miller will discuss various types of computers and software and how they work together, as well as operating systems, windows applications and word processing. After completing the class, students should be able to understand basic computer terminology, file storage and retrieval, email and instant messaging, as well as basic troubleshooting and locating resources.
Cost is $45 and includes a manual.
