Gentle reader of the Smoky Blog,
I want to take this opportunity to assure you that the July 1st competencies deadline is not a reason for panic. You only need to have the curiosity and willingness! I suggest checking out DVDs on excel, word, power point and watching tutorials. It's really all about knowing where to go for help. Locate the help button on any program, such as excel and become familiar with the index so you know where to look for help. I know we are all busy but the buddy system is also a great way to learn. Ask one of the techs or staff who knows power point or whatever you want to brush up on and plan a time, even a half hour together to go over the basics. We are here for you and learn as much by your questions as anything else!
