Nearly every career requires the use of a computer. By practicing outside of class and participating in classroom practice sessions, students will develop basic keyboarding skills. Emphasis will be on learning the `touch` method for using both the keyboard and the numeric keypad. The keyboarding goal will be the attainment of a minimum rate of 20 net words per minute on alphabetic copy. (Net words per minute is determined by subtracting 2 for each error from the gross words per minute.) It will be necessary to have access to a computer outside of class. A student computer lab is available on each campus.
