We are pleased to have the Washington State Library Microsoft IT Academy training program available in our library, thanks to the Washington State Library and Microsoft.
All of the online training included in the IT Academy program is free, and includes 250 courses and resources. Soon, the courses will be offered in a dozen languages.
The IT Academy training provides you with industry-leading technology skills to help bridge the skills gap for students and adults. The Washington State Library Microsoft IT Academy offers technology courses on three levels – basic literacy skills, Microsoft Office skills and advanced skills for IT professionals. You can achieve certification following successful completion of a series of courses by testing at certification centers, or you can just take the courses without certification. The courses are available without any cost to you. If you want the certification, you will need to travel to the closest testing center and be willing to bear the expense.
If you are interested in signing up for the Microsoft IT Academy courses, please contact Earlene Mokler at 509.942.7408 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Or ask for her at the front desk.
We are excited to be one of nearly 400 libraries that are partners in the Washington State Library Microsoft IT Academy. We appreciate the assistance provided by Microsoft and the Washington State Library in helping our staff make these IT Academy online courses available.
