Workforce Development


Our goal is to help you meet the demands of a technology-driven society, both in the workplace and in your personal life. At Erie House, you can enroll in computer classes at basic, intermediate and advanced levels that cover both software applications and the installation and use of hardware. Las clases se enseña en español.

You will develop skills needed in your everyday life, including basic Internet use, as well as skills that will expand your employment opportunities, such as how to create documents in Microsoft Word and working with Excel spreadsheets. 

Technology is also an important component of our other workforce development bridge programs. All of our vocational programs include computer skills that range from basic to industry-specific, such as introduction to Electronic Medical Records and CAD/CAM.
