Learn to use your work computer efficiently
Are you sitting at working feeling less than competent when everyone else seems to know what they are doing? Work Skills computer training in your office increases productivity. Technology is a major part of the office today. Most people are glued to their desk and screens. They send messages into the next room or office station and these basic skills are important to know.
Outlook is a complex email program that runs on both Mac and PC’s and is used as a popular email tool to communicate with. Some of the other basic skills employees are expected to know are Microsoft Office suite. MS Office includes apps like Word, PowerPoint, Excel and Publisher. Often in the job description it will ask for Windows 10 or Mac experience. If it is a Apple Mac they may be using Pages instead of Word. Keynote instead of PowerPoint, Numbers instead of Excel and then there are eBooks.
It is becoming accepted that new employees naturally know how to use these computer applications. But we are not born with this knowledge, nor do we learn it at school. A lot of jobs have the 3 month probationary period and KPI’s to work towards. Stopping another employee to ask how to do what looks like a simple task to them, is daunting. Each workplace has its own processes and protocols for completing tasks.
Professional Development modules
Depending on your profession you will be required to partake in Professional development modules that must to be completed on a regular basis. Certainly teachers are constantly having to increase their knowledge on top of all the other things they are to do. Pre-school teachers need to take photos and send the parents a daily update of what the child did today. Meanwhile the parent is busy earning money to pay for childcare and exist in a 2 income world. Moodle is a free platform that is used for teachers and students. There are presentations that need to be created, reports typed, research, or the office CMS database systems. There are many different brands of CMS systems on the market that keep a track of clients and services provided. Work skills computer training is based on the individual situation for every work place.
