Instructions for Using ComputerTrain

ComputerTrain is an online training system. It has many online training modules, called self-paced courses, covering office productivity applications. ComputerTrain is also a registration system for classroom training workshops. You can attend the online training at your convenience, or you can attend the classroom workshops for a more personal detailed training experience.

ComputerTrain has a "My Training" page that reports all of your training progress in one place. The "My Training" page enables you to resume online courses that you left incomplete, to see the online courses that you have completed, to see classroom workshops in which you have enrolled, and to see classroom workshops in which you have completed.
