To create a multi-purpose educational center that serves as a community resource for workforce development (to include math, computer skills, and language development for Spanish speaking residents preparing for the workforce); development of early literacy skills with a focus on reading, writing, and math; and college preparation with career assessment assistance.
About the Learning and Technology Training Center (LTTC)
The Northwest Georgia Regional Library is proud to announce the launch of this center. The LTTC will offer computer and workforce development classes to the public for free. This is the place to improve your computer and employment skills. A variety of classes will be offered at the LTTC by qualified instructors, and these classes are designed to help you achieve your learning goals.
So that we can share our space with AARP Tax-Aide, our computer classes will be condensed for the Spring. The offered classes are our most popular and most requested. See the below schedule and description for information.
If you are interested in developing your technology or employment skills, the LTTC is the right place. We have changed our classes to help promote more of the skills that our students have suggested! These classes have been designed to help learners of all ages get the skills they need to use computer resources.
