Northeast takes part in Philly Tech Week with Frankford’s free computer training workshop

There are more than 80 events on the calendar for Philly Tech Week 2012, and the Northeast is taking part with a computer training series.

The Frankford Community Development Corporation,  the People’s Emergency Center and Pa. Rep. Tony Payton, D-179, will sponsor a free computer training class April 24, 25 and 26.

Residents are invited to attend one of the workshops to learn the basics of Microsoft Office, email, Internet searches and online job-hunting. The Frankford CDC will host all three classes at its office at 4900 Griscom St., and participants will receive a certificate upon completion.

The April 24 and 25 workshops are scheduled for noon to 1:30 p.m., and the April 26 workshop will be from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Questions are to be directed to Payton’s office at 215-744-7901.
