Become computer-savvy: BARC offers 5-week class!

In today’s world, it is hard to get by without understanding the fundamentals of computer technology. In an effort to help more beginners get their jump-start, the Brownsville Area Revitalization Corporation (BARC) is offering an introductory-level computer class for individuals who have not quite conquered a thorough understanding of basic computer skills. Classes are open to all ages, but seating is very limited, eight spots total. The course will meet every Wednesday night from 7-8PM for a period of five weeks at the Gazalie Building in Brownsville (161 Market Street, Brownsville, PA 15417). Classes are only $25 for the entire series, starting August 4th through September 1st.

Although it may seem like everyone who is anyone is technologically savvy by nature, there are still many of us who haven’t had the window of opportunity to acquire these essential skills. Jeremy Beeler will serve as the instructor and facilitator for this preparatory course. By utilizing a basic nuts-and-bolts approach, Mr. Beeler will be able to share his professional knowledge and expertise with individuals who are interested in building the foundation for their computer skill capabilities.

Currently the senior software engineer for the health care information technology provider McKesson, Mr. Beeler has nearly ten years’ experience working with object-oriented languages, configuration management systems, relational database management systems, and more. Beeler has served as a software engineer and computer operations coordinator for companies including ServiceLink, Union Switch & Signal, Co., and the University of Pittsburgh.

This computer class series is made possible by Mr. Jeremy Beeler and the Brownsville Area Revitalization Corporation (BARC). BARC is a 501c3 non-profit organization whose mission is to achieve economic development through historic preservation, heritage tourism, outdoor recreation, community stewardship, education, youth advancement and the arts.

To register for this course series and for more information, please contact the BARC office at 724-785-9331.
