Clayton County offering residents computer training courses

Clayton County’s Office of Digital Equity is offering residents of the south metro Atlanta community free training on navigating and protecting their computers.

Training will be available at different locations throughout the county until December 19 and is being broken up into two classes: Navigating your personal commuter and protecting your computer.

The training is an effort to address the needs of Clayton residents who do not have digital access, including internet and cellular services, Clayton County Commission Chair Jeff Turner said in a statement.

“We are also excited to be able to educate, inform, and improve the technical offerings that our citizens may not otherwise have access to, which they can use to learn a new skill, potentially qualify for additional career paths, and start or improve their own business,” he said.
