MICROCOMPUTER CENTER

Spring 2007

Community Services offers a wide arrangement of computer courses that you can use to begin and/or continue your education. They are designed to offer exposure to a specific program or application rather than to build skills. Classes are offered at a variety of times throughout the quarter for your convenience.

If you wish to build skills, College of Marin offers credit classes. The goal of these classes is to provide in-depth understanding of the subject through textbook study, homework and lab assignments. Credit Classes are graded, and you can work toward a certificate or associate degree. For more information, please refer to the Credit Schedule.

Hands-on Computer Classes General Information:

Community Services computer workshops are three to sixteen hours long. Hands-on workshops are small and offer one-on-one instruction and are designed to offer exposure to a specific program or application rather than to build skills. Classes are offered at a variety of times throughout the quarter for your convenience. There is no homework and no grades. All classes are taught with one student per computer.

*IMPORTANT INFORMATION*:

You are expected to have:

  • Windows proficiency before enrolling in any PC application class.
  • Mac proficiency before enrolling in any Mac application class.

Wait-listed people will be admitted 30 minutes after a class starts if space is available. Please arrive on time to assure your place. Please review the sections on "Attendance at First Class Meeting" and "Refunds" before registering.

The on-campus deli has limited hours of service, as well as food. It is two miles to the nearest eatery. If you are coming for an all-day class, or for one on Saturday, you may want to bring your lunch.
