GroundWork group IT Specialist Jamie Ratcliffe will present a workshop on Windows 7, the newest version of Microsoft.  Do you have the new version?  Are you having trouble finding where the old functions were in 2007 and where the new functions are now?  Maybe you are still using 2007 and want to see the new version up close before considering purchasing for your organization.  April’s Nonprofit IT Forum will give you the opportunity to do just that.  You can come to see for yourself the Windows 7 version of Microsoft and have the ability to ask Jamie questions.

Adobe Acrobat 9 Professional enables anyone to reliably create, combine, and control Adobe PDF documents for easy, more secure distribution, collaboration, and data collection. This class will enable you to prepare and edit PDF documents, as well as add the interactive features which have made Acrobat so successful today.
Regardless of your industry, everyone can benefit from this informative and exciting class. Individuals who will be preparing documents for intranet or internet use will find lots of useful tips to get the most out of Acrobat 9. New features will be discussed and hands-on exercises will give the student the ability to see the many features of Acrobat 9 Professional.  *(Because of the amount of material we cover in class, we do require students to be comfortable using a mouse, opening and saving files, and the general operations of computers)*
