These days, most people take electronic word processing for granted. While we may still write out our grocery lists with pen and paper, we expect to use a computer to create the majority of our documents.

Whether you are an executive secretary or a website designer, you’ll need to know the ins and outs of electronic word processing.

Don’t take our word for it – here’s what our clients say:
I have spent decades achieving IT certifications, and it wasn’t until I sat in an Applied Technology Academy class that I really feel like I had finally found the BEST “hands on” training provider. No looking back, I’m here to stay with Applied Technology Academy!
– John F.
We had critical certification deadlines to meet for 75% of my team and the Applied Technology Academy team worked to ensure that my team was trained and achieved a 100% pass rate. Some of the team members’ jobs were on the line – Applied Technology Academy to the rescue!
– Marilyn S.
Having used a multitude of training providers in the past with less than stellar results, we were so excited to find Applied Technology Academy. Their instructors, we have had four, have been consistently amazing. We are done shopping for a training provider!
