The Northstar Basic Computer Skills certificate program


with Academic Instructor

Calendar Aug 1, 2017

Using a computer at work and for other tasks is increasingly a part of everyday life. But not everyone has had the opportunity to learn the basics of computer use.

Lake Region and Fryeburg Area Adult Education now offers FREE a way to help adults assess their computer skills and earn a certificate to prove their proficiency.

The modules assess your proficiency in assessment areas:

Basic Computer Skills

Internet Navigation

Email protocols

Microsoft Suite (Word, PowerPoint, Excel)

Operating Systems: Windows OS and Mac OS.


The Standards spell out the specific skills adults need to know and master to become computer literate. At the end of each assessment, the user receives a page of results, which lists the skills that have been mastered and the areas that need improvement. To earn a certificate for each or all of the modules, individuals must take the assessments at an approved sponsoring site and receive a passing score of 85% or higher on each test.

We are pleased to be a Northstar sponsoring site. This program will help our students develop computer literacy, demonstrate basic digital competency, and obtain a credential to add to their resume and assist them in the job search.

Call us - 627-4291 - to schedule a time to take the FREE assessment and discuss the certificate process. While you're here,
