Computing @ CED

Online Training

Software Skills

When students first arrive at CED there are expectations that they have basic knowledge on certain software applications. For example the Office Suite (Microsoft Excel, Word, and PowerPoint); image applications (Adobe Acrobat, PhotoShop, and Illustrator); and some specialty software (AutoCAD or ESRI ArcGis).
