Bow Valley College

Pre-Employment Computer Literacy

In 2016, the DDRC formed a partnership with Bow Valley College’s Centre for Excellence in Foundational Learning, which allows the DDRC to provide the Pre-Employment Computer Literacy course to PACE clients. The 12-week course was designed to provide positive results for learners of all styles, using a blend of video, text, images, and activities to reinforce concepts.

Topics covered include basic computer functions, using the Internet, digital literacy, online safety, and commonly used computer programs. Learners will also see how computer skills can help them with employment – searching for a job, writing a cover letter and résumé, applying for a job by email, and more.
