RCC RILL Course Boosts Computer Skills and Confidence

The Rappahannock Institute for Lifelong Learning (RILL) will present a week-long course, “Introduction to Computers” June 17 through 21, from 2 pm to 4 pm. Martin Bailey, adjunct professor at RCC,  will conduct the course at the L.E. Smoot Library in King George.

This course is designed for those who want to get the most from their computers or devices. Beginning with basic computer operating fundamentals for both hardware and software, Bailey will help students develop competency in file and folder organization and management, Internet and email usage, and management of various file formats. Includes an overview of Windows 7, Windows 10 and Microsoft Office Suite. Bailey offers extensive hands-on instruction and fun while learning more about today’s technology.

Martin Bailey holds a bachelor’s degree in mathematics from The College of William and Mary and a master’s degree in computer science from Virginia Tech. Before his retirement from the Naval Surface Warfare Center in Dahlgren, he was involved in many aspects of computer work, including programming, algorithm development, database management systems, and computer security.

Advance registration, with a tuition payment of $35, is required to take this course.
