LEWISTON — A free adult education computer in-person class, due to start in May, aims to help students earn professional certifications for future employment.
Lewiston Adult Education is offering an Applied Technology in the Workplace class in partnership with Androscoggin and Oxford County Adult Education programs. Greg Yates will be the teacher, according to a news release from the education program.
Upon successful completion of the class, students can earn certification in Internet and Computing Core Certification (IC3), a WorkReady credential and a digital course completion certificate.
Employers recognize IC3 certifications as the global standard for digital literacy. It also validates an applicant’s computer skills and serves as a foundation for earning other certifications.
The class is scheduled to begin Tuesday, May 10. Applied Technology in the Workplace will be held from 3 to 8 p.m. Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays.
“It’s an all-in-one integrated course, built with you and your employment success at the heart of it,” Lewiston Adult Education Director Jen Tiner said.
Classes will be held simultaneously at four locations:
• Lewiston Adult Education’s Adult Learning Center, Longley School, 145 Birch St., Lewiston;
• RSU/MSAD44 Adult & Community Education, Telstar Middle School, 284 Walkers Mills Road, Bethel;
• MSAD 52 Adult & Community Education, 486 Turner Center Road, Turner; and
• School of Applied Tech-Region 9, 377 River Road, Mexico.
