HUNTINGTON, NY - December 13, 2011 - As a service to help those who have served our country in the armed forces learn and improve their computer skills and strengths, Family Service League is offering a free 15-week course in computer training at the basic and intermediate levels.
The classes are open to all veterans residing on Long Island and will be held at the Kornreich Adult Computer Literacy Center at Roslyn High School, 475 Round Hill Road in Roslyn Heights. The basic course takes place on Wednesday evenings from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. while the intermediate instruction is on Tuesdays from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Both courses begin in January 2012 and run through April.
Students will be given instruction in Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, keyboarding and basic Internet applications that can be utilized in office and other positions requiring computer skills.

The program is sponsored by John Kornreich, the funder and originator of this program who has recognized the need for veterans to gain access to computer training to enhance their skills for employment opportunities and personal enrichment.
