Anyone interested in enhancing their knowledge and skills with computers and the Internet is invited to participate in free continuing education computer classes as Owens Community College and the non-profit Connect Ohio organization announce training opportunities during the month of July.
Individuals will be able to attend free computer classes at Wood County JOBsolutions, 1928 E. Gypsy Lane Road in Bowling Green. Additional locations are being offered in Toledo, Maumee and Findlay.
The educational initiative, titled Every Citizen Online, is led by Connect Ohio as part of a $6.9 million federal grant the organization has received to help expand access to broadband Internet to consumers across the state. Each class will highlight computer basics, an introduction to the Internet and discussion about how broadband can be helpful in daily life.
The upcoming six-hour computer classes will take place Fridays, July 12 and 19 from 1 to 4 p.m. at Wood County JOBsolutions.
Connect Ohio is a non-profit public-private partnership, whose mission is to see all Ohioans connected to the benefits of high-speed Internet service. The organization's federal grant was awarded through the U.S. Department of Commerce's National Telecommunications and Information Administration's (NTIA) Broadband Technology Opportunities Program (BTOP).
For more information, or to register for the free classes, individuals can call (567) 661-7357 or 1-800-GO-OWENS, Ext. 7357.
