I am going to take a class at the near by vo- tech to learn Microsoft office Suites. 8 weeks, twice a week, 3 hours each day. It is a $300 course and I am ridiculously excited about it.

That is all.

Good for you!  I'm sure you find lots of uses for it.  Let us know how you like the class and how you are using your new skills!

 

FWIW, one of my dc did that course last year.  Today I watched dc use a shortcut to something I've done regularly for years the long (tedious, problematic, annoying) way.  It would have saved me hours of time over the years if I'd known there was a quick and easy way to do it.  Maybe I should sign up for the class, too!

You go right ahead! I hope you bite off a bigger piece and extend your classes if it is an offering. I did mine at the local college and it covered levels 1 and 2 of Office as well as 1 & 2 of QuickBooks. I really enjoyed it. It was for several hours three days a week. Made some good friends. if you can do the testing for free that includes certification from MS and QuickBooks, do it!

Yes I can do this and I plan to.

I really got left behind when I came home to raise ds. He graduates this year and I need to catch up.

I should do this for the same reason. I use Microsoft Office and Quickbooks and have for over a decade, but I just bumble along as I go. The way I do some things works, technically, but I know I am not doing them the “real”way.

Good for you!

 

I've been taking some workshops in Microsoft Office and Excel.  Much shorter and less comprehensive than what you are taking. I should look at our local vo-tech for more.

Good for you! This is what a recruiter recommended to me, as a housewife, if I want to return to the work force. He said to include that on your resume.

Woohoo!! That's exciting!
I'm trying to start online in January to get my Associates. It's been a big friggin' headache so far. I hope you're having an easier go of it!
