CHAUTAUQUA-CATTARAUGUS LIBRARY SYSTEM OFFERING FREE ONLINE CAREER SKILL COURSES THROUGH LOCAL LIBRARY CARD
Jamestown, NY, October 1, 2019: The Chautauqua-Cattaraugus Library System (CCLS) is working through Penn Foster to offer free online courses. These Course Packs will enable patrons to learn, review, and practice basic skills related to most careers. Courses include Digital Literacy, Soft Skills, Basic Math, Math for Careers, and Adult Literacy. To check out a course pack, all one needs is a device, internet connection, and an up-to-date library card. Penn Foster Course Packs are supported by the funds from the New York State Library’s Adult Literacy Library Service Program.
Digital Literacy – Work with and integrate computer applications skills used in a variety of work environments, including Microsoft Word, Excel, and PowerPoint
Basic Math – Practice the basic skills and strategies needed for math used in everyday life, including basic operations, problem solving, personal financial management, and budgeting
Math for Careers – Review the practical application of the basic math skills and strategies used in business and industrial settings, including basic operations, problem solving, percentages, basic algebra, measuring, and measurement systems
Soft Skills – Discover the people, personal, and workplace skills needed for entry-level and front-line job readiness, including respect, integrity, teamwork, communication skills, problem solving, and decision making
Adult Literacy – Review the basic skills and strategies used by adults for reading and writing in everyday life, including grammar, punctuation, spelling, and text analysis and comprehension
Each course pack can be checked out with an up-to-date library card. The loan period is for 4 weeks and can be renewed once. If the course packs are checked out, a hold can be placed and you will receive a notice once the course is available. Once a course is checked out, you can work through the material at your own pace at the library or anywhere there is internet access.
Digital badges that can be listed on your resume are earned after completing each course. You may choose to work through the parts of the material that are most relevant or work through the entire course.
The courses have been designed to be intuitive and easy to follow. Staff at the Olean, Prendergast, Patterson, Dunkirk, Ellicottville, and Fredonia (Darwin R Barker) libraries have gone through training to support any questions. Patrons from all CCLS Member Libraries with an up-to-date library card are able to check out these courses.
Learning new skills or brushing up on career skills is essential for a changing workplace. Check with your local library for more information on the 5 free courses available or contact LJ Martin at firstname.lastname@example.org, 716-664-6675 x 243, or visit http://www.cclsny.org/adult-literacy/
