Computer Skills e-Learning courses are now available

The Learning & Development unit in the Human Resources & Employee Relations Department is offering a new series of e-Learning computer skills courses. These courses, which cover a myriad of topics, are now available to the York community.

The program offers employees the benefit of being able to access a wide range of courses with the convenience of completing them at their own pace. On average, most courses are approximately 20 hours in length and are ideal for individuals who prefer self-directed learning or who are unable to attend scheduled in-class courses held at the Microcomputer Training Centre.
