In addition to its software courses, Training Services offers classes to help you learn about the world beyond your office. For those new to the World Wide Web, there is a hands-on course on Browsing the Web with Netscape (November 21). A World Wide Web Quick Start (no fee or registration) is also held twice each month. If you want to learn how to publish information on the Web, you can take Electronic Publishing Using HTML (November 26). A free, three-hour HTML demo is offered several times each month and is a pre-requisite for the hands-on course.
