September Computer Training Schedule

September Computer Training Schedule

Posted August 08, 2012

Get the computer training you need at the Library and update your skills this month. Register now for the East Brunswick Public Library’s latest computer class offerings.

The Library will be offering courses for both beginners and more advanced Microsoft Office users.

For Beginners

Beginners can register for our PC Literacy I and II classes for users who are new to computers.   We are also offering the Introduction to Microsoft Outlook Part I.  This is the first of our series of three classes on Microsoft's email application.

For More Advanced Users

More advanced users can sign up for the Microsoft Office suite of classes.  This month we are offering four levels of Microsoft Word, four levels of ExcelPowerPoint II and Introduction to the New Microsoft Office for those who are unfamiliar with the ribbon and advances since the new file format in 2007.

September Schedule:

All courses are offered using the latest Microsoft software - Windows 7 and Office 2010. Registration is required. All registrants should look at the class offerings carefully to insure that they have the necessary skills for each class. Most classes are two hours long and limited to 12 students per class.  


There is a $5 fee for cardholders and a $10 fee for non-cardholders. Fees will be added to a cardholder’s account and paid for at the Circulation desk. Register at the Library, by phone or by going to the event in the website Calendar and clicking on the Sign Me Up link. Your library card and PIN numbers will be required. Non-cardholders must pay at the time of registration, i.e. registrations must be in person.

Cancellation Policy

Fees for computer class registrations are NOT refundable, so please be aware that you are making a definite commitment to attend a class when you register.  Managing all of the changes in customer computer class registrations has been a very large job and has required staff hours which the library no longer has. The library would ask that you think of this as a small donation for all of the hours that are put in to running the classes.

If you cannot attend

If you cannot attend a class for which you have registered the Library would ask that as a courtesy to other registrants who may be waitlisted for that class that you call 732-390-6767 to cancel your registration or cancel your registration online so that they might have the opportunity to attend.

Waitlisted registrants

Waitlisted registrants will be notified by email and/or telephone as soon as there is a vacancy in a class. They will have 24 hours to respond to the notification. If they do not respond within that time frame, the next person on the waiting list will be notified. Once a commitment to attend has been made, that registration is subject to the same cancellation policy noted above. They do not pay unless there is a cancellation and they are admitted to the class proper.

Registration Requirements 

Please register early.  Registration will be closed 24 hours before the start of a class.  If there are fewer than six people registered at that time the class will be cancelled.  The library will make every effort to run classes as scheduled.  If circumstances dictate that the library must cancel a class, registration fees for those students are refundable.
