Kirkwood Community College is offering free training options in Iowa City, supplementing their partnership with IowaWORKS. Workforce funds enable the college to offer free skills courses and design training pathways for in-demand jobs.
Kirkwood identifies the skills needed by area employers to provide training. In Iowa City recently, courses to improve basic computer skills, like typing, using the Internet, email, Microsoft® Word and Excel have been expanded. English-as-a-second-language courses and instruction on social media and conducting job searches have been added as well.
