Unemployed or underemployed job seekers can receive scholarships to attend computer training courses that will help strengthen their skills for a new job or future promotion. JVS is accepting applications now for “Better Job Opportunities,” a 12-week course beginning September 13.
Students receive 72 hours of hands-on training that covers Microsoft Office skills: Word, Excel®, PowerPoint®, Access®, Publisher and Outlook®. The program also includes job preparedness training and seminars. Upon successful completion of the course, students receive a certificate of proficiency.
Classes are held at the David B. Hermelin ORT Resource Center in West Bloomfield, a division of JVS. Day or evening times are offered.
The course fee is $720; however, scholarships are available through funding from ORT Michigan and The Jewish Fund. Space is limited and an application is required for eligibility. The David B.
