Course I: Certificate in Keyboarding Online Course

There are 12 units of study 

Getting Started with Key Pro 5
Our first lesson guides you step by step as you download, install, and set up Key Pro 5. You'll also get acquainted with the program, learning about the home row keys and the reach to the i key on the QWERTY keyboard. Are you confused about what home row and QWERTY mean? Don't worry—I'll explain it all.

Lowercase Letters, Plus the Reaches to the e and the n
Now that you're getting comfortable with the home row on the QWERTY keyboard, it's time to introduce you to some new keys. Today you'll learn the proper techniques for lowercase letters. You'll also use Key Pro 5 to practice the reaches to the e and the n. Also, is all this typing causing you aches and pains? You'll find out how to reduce fatigue while typing. The good habits you learn today will pay off in the future!
 
The Left Shift, h, t, and Period Reaches
In this lesson, you'll learn four new keystrokes: left SHIFT, h, t, and period (.). I'll also provide some tips on improving speed and accuracy and introduce you to the Key Pro 5 word processor program.

Learn the r, Right SHIFT, c, and o Reaches
Continue to build your keyboarding vocabulary by learning four new key reaches in this lesson: r, right SHIFT, c, and o. We'll also talk about “the Zen of typing” . . . in other words, how touch-typing becomes an instinctive and unconscious action.

The w, Comma, b, and p Reaches
Your typing vocabulary continues to expand rapidly with the addition of the reaches to the w, comma, b, and p. Before you know it, you'll be typing complete paragraphs! This lesson also covers what you need to know about carpal tunnel syndrome, a serious and painful condition that you can avoid.

The g, Question Mark, x, and u Reaches
Expand your typing vocabulary by mastering four more key reaches: the g, question mark (?), x, and u. Just a few more reaches, and you'll know how to type the whole alphabet! In this lesson, you'll also learn about the function (FN) key and the numbers lock (NUM LOCK) key, which are on most laptop keyboards.
 
The q, m, v, and Apostrophe Reaches
Today you'll add another four reaches to your typing vocabulary: q, m, v, and apostrophe ('). You'll also learn how to save a document with a word processing program.

The z, y, Quotation Mark, and TAB Reaches
It's time to add another four reaches to your typing vocabulary: the z, y, quotation mark ("), and TAB keys. After this lesson, you'll know the reaches to all the alphabetic keys! You'll also find out how to open, edit, and resave word processing documents.
 
Alphabetic Key Review, the 1 and 8 Number Reaches, and Timed Writings
Are you ready to improve your skills and learn some new ones? After you review the z, y, x, q, v, quotation mark, and CAPS LOCK keys, you'll learn the reaches to the numbers 1 and 8. Then you'll take timed writings in the Key Pro 5 word processor.

Number Reaches, Deleting Text, and Alphabetic Key Review
What's the difference between the DELETE key, the BACKSPACE key, and the Cut command? By the end of this lesson, you'll understand how and when to use these three editing tools. You'll also continue to improve your skills with the alphabetic keys, plus you'll learn more number reaches: 5, 0, 2, and 7.
 
Number and Symbol Reaches, Number Rules, and Key Review
 When should you spell out numbers (like this: one, nine, five hundred), and when should you write them as figures (1, 9, 500)? I'll explain in this lesson. You'll also continue to improve your skills with the keys you've already learned, and you'll finish the number reaches by mastering 4, 9, 3, and 6. Then you’ll learn two symbol reaches: the dollar sign ($) and the hyphen (-).

Symbol Reaches and Skill Building
 You've already mastered some of the symbols and punctuation marks. Today, in our last lesson together, you'll meet the rest of the symbols. You'll also work on your accuracy and speed with the Key Pro 5 Skill Building lessons.

Course III : Certificate in Introduction to PC Troubleshooting Online Course

There are 12 units of study

The Computing Process
Lesson 1 starts you on the path to troubleshooting PCs like a pro. You’ll first look at input devices, or how you tell the computer to do stuff. In the second part of the lesson, you’ll explore the pieces that do the work inside the computer. The final section describes the output devices, where the computer communicates to you.

Troubleshooting Theory
This lesson will take you through the troubleshooting process. It’s not a guide to solving specific computer problems, but the steps explained here will enable you to tackle any computer problems you might encounter. The three main steps are identifying the problem, testing solutions, and completing the process.

Operating System Overview
Lesson 3 introduces you to some of the basic components and tools of an operating system. First, you’ll find out about the primary functions of operating systems. You’ll then explore the major parts of Microsoft Windows, including the Desktop and Windows Explorer. You’ll finish the lesson by learning about the most important troubleshooting tools for fixing operating systems.

OS Fixes
Lesson 4 leads you through the basic steps of troubleshooting an operating system, including startup, video, sound, and application errors. You’ll look at tools like Safe Mode and the System Configuration utility and learn about driver rollback. You’ll end the lesson by learning how to troubleshoot audio/visual errors.

Avoiding OS Obstacles
How would you like to prevent system problems instead of rushing to fix them? In this lesson, you’ll master the three most important types of preventive maintenance: backing up data that’s on a hard drive, updating or upgrading the operating system, and using Windows utilities that help you monitor and maintain the OS.

Networking Basics
Lesson 6 covers the basics of networking. First, you’ll find out how networks work and what the necessary components are for a wired network. Next, you’ll discover wireless networks and everything that separates them from their wired-network brethren. Finally, you’ll learn about the biggest network of them all, the Internet.

Troubleshooting Network and Internet Issues
Lesson 7 covers the steps to take when trying to fix your network or Internet connections. You’ll learn how to troubleshoot wired and wireless networks, share files, and fix a dial-up or broadband Internet connection.

Preventing Internet Problems
Keep your computer safe from Internet-based attacks, including viruses and spyware! You’ll discover the many types of malicious software that can infect your computer, and I’ll walk you through the five-step process of recovering from a virus infection. You’ll also read about safe browsing and safe email use, and you’ll find out how to configure a firewall to help defend your PC.

Introduction to PC Hardware
All PC techs needs to get their hands dirty eventually, which means diving inside the case and checking things out from the inside. In this lesson, I’ll teach you about the power of different PC parts, including what to look for when shopping for new parts. I’ll also guide you in the safe and proper handling of components.

Installing Hardware
Replacing hardware components can dramatically improve your PC's performance. For instance, RAM can speed up your computer, a second hard drive increases your data storage capacity, and expansion cards can add features and ports to your computer. In this lesson, you'll learn to handle RAM, hard drives, and expansion cards.

Maintaining Hardware
Dirt happens! You can't make your PC last forever, but you can make it last longer and run better by keeping it clean. Get out your canned air and your distilled water (but not your pencil erasers or your household vacuum cleaner), and I'll show you safe and effective ways to check, clean, and maintain the inside and outside of your computer. We'll also talk about how to donate an old computer, and I'll explain how to throw away a computer without losing data or harming the environment.

Life of a PC Troubleshooter
You've come a long way since the beginning of this course. Before you complete your PC troubleshooting training, I'll remind you about the computing process and about troubleshooting theory. Combined with your new knowledge of PC hardware, software, and networking, you can use these tools to fix all sorts of problems. I'll also discuss your future as a PC troubleshooter, including the certifications and careers available to anyone with the right skills.
