LEWISTON — The Lewiston Adult Education program is offering a free computer class to help students earn professional certifications for future employment.

The Applied Technology in the Workplace course is offered in partnership with Androscoggin and Oxford County Adult Education programs. Greg Yates will be the teacher. Upon successful completion of the class, students will earn certification in Internet and Computing Core Certification (IC3), a WorkReady credential and a digital course completion certificate.

Employers recognize IC3 certifications as the global standard for digital literacy. It also validates an applicant’s computer skills and serves as an excellent foundation for earning other certifications.

“It’s an all-in-one integrated course, built with you and your employment success at the heart of it,” Lewiston Adult Education Director Jen Tiner said.

Applied Technology in the Workplace Begins May 10 and will be held on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from 3 p.m. to 8 p.m.

Classes will be held simultaneously at Region 9 in Rumford, MSAD 52 in Turner, MSAD 44 in Bethel and at Lewiston Adult Education in Lewiston.

Greg Yates will serve as the instructor of the upcoming Applied Technology in the Workplace class.
