RCC RILL boosts computer confidence

Posted on Wednesday, August 21, 2019 at 9:43 am

Rappahannock Institute for Lifelong Learning presents a four-session course, “Introduction to Computers” on Mondays in September. Lead by Martin Bailey, adjunct professor at RCC, the course will be held on RCC’s Warsaw campus from 2:30 to 4:30 p.m., September 9, 16, 23, and 30.

This course is designed for those who would like to get the most from their computers or devices. Beginning with basic computer operating fundamentals for both hardware and software, Bailey will help students develop competency in file and folder organization and management, Internet and email usage, and management of various file formats; and includes an overview of Windows 7, Windows 10 and Microsoft Office Suite. Bailey offers extensive hands-on instruction and fun while learning more about today’s technology.

Bailey holds a bachelor’s degree in mathematics from The College of William and Mary and a master’s degree in computer science from Virginia Tech. Before his retirement from the Naval Surface Warfare Center in Dahlgren, he was involved in many aspects of computer work, including programming, algorithm development, database management systems, and computer security.

Advance registration, with a tuition payment, is required to take this course. For more information on “Introduction to Computers” and other RILL courses, or to register, please call Michele Inderrieden at 804-333-6824. Registration can be completed online at:
