Five Frankford residents complete CDC’s computer literacy training course

From basic computer skills to social networking and Internet usage, five Frankford residents got a crash course last week during the Frankford CDC’s three-day computer literacy certification program.

Hosted with the help of Pa. Rep. Tony Payton, D-179th, the event was one of about 80 organized for the annual Philly Tech Week. Residents were invited to sign up for the free workshop and use the CDC’s new computer lab to enhance their computer skills. It was the only Northeast Philadelphia event part of Philly Tech Week.
