Free Plus 50 Computer Class

Northeast Alabama Community College, in conjunction with the American Association of Community Colleges Plus 50 Initiative, is now offering a free seven-week Practical PC course. The course covers basic PC instruction on file management, installing software, connecting to the Internet and general PC maintenance. The last class on “How to Purchase a PC” has been very helpful to past class members.

The Plus 50 Initiative is a project to benchmark and highlight the most current and innovative programs at community colleges that engage learners age 50 and over. Organized by the American Association of Community Colleges, the Plus 50 Initiative invests in community colleges to create or expand campus programs that engage the plus 50 student population, with a focus on workforce training and preparing for new careers.

Registration is now open for the spring seven-week course beginning Monday, April 7. Classes are Monday nights from 5:30-7:30 pm in the Business Education Building Room 207. To register for the class, please contact Sherry Whitten in the College and Career Planning Center on the NACC Campus at ext. 2315 or by email at
