Each workshop offers useful information about a specific technology presented by a knowledgeable instructor in a small class environment. Classes range from 60 minute information sessions to hour(s) long hands-on sessions.

In addition to our regularly-scheduled workshops, we offer customized departmental or group training sessions as well. This training is designed to meet the needs of groups that would like specialized instruction on one or more topics. Please contact Kelly to plan your session.

Vouchers are available to faculty and staff who are interested in software training not provided by Skidmore. Please visit New Horizons or the ACC Center to view their available courses.
