Downtown computer center expands

Responding to the growing need for hands-on instruction in computer technology, Pitt's Computer Learning Center (CLC) will cut the ribbon Dec. 2 at its newly expanded Downtown location.

CLC is a non-credit program housed administratively in the College of General Studies. It serves approximately 6,000 people a year from the academic, business and greater Pittsburgh population. Discount rates are available for Pitt and UPMC employees.

The center has more than doubled its number of computer workstations and can now accommodate 80 students in comprehensive computer training programs in four state-of-the-art classrooms.

More than 550 area companies used the center in the 1997-98 academic year for employee training in personal computer software, including spreadsheets, graphics and project management. A new WebMaster Certificate Program provides information on planning Web sites and corporate intra-nets.

"Today's organizations depend on their employees to be ready to access and process information via computers," said center director Carla Depperman. "Our center allows workers to keep abreast of current software and use of the Internet."CLC is located in Suite 1105, Kossman Building, 100 Forbes Ave., Downtown. An open house for the general public is slated for Jan. 9 from 9:30 a.m. to noon.

For more information about the center, call 281-7488.
