Additional Program Information


The objective of the Personal Computer Skills Certificate is to increase job performance and productivity of white-collar workers. Businesses are increasingly expecting employees to be computer-literate and to provide enhanced performance and productivity through their computer skills. Graduates of the certificate program would satisfy this criterion thus retaining their competitiveness in the current market. Assuming that the majority of students attracted to the program are already employed, this would assist them in retaining employment and/or advancing in the company with “skills upgrade.”
