AutoCAD will cover introductory skills to assist students in Computer-Aided Drawing. For those not ready for the more professional software, HCC will offer a basic class in Google Sketch-Up 8 for the first time. Sketch-Up provides many of the same features as AutoCAD but is much simpler to use. Both courses would be helpful for those employed in metal and woodworking businesses and beginning crafters.

Photoshop Elements 9 will help students correct and change various issues with digital and scanned images. Windows 7 will provide students with the newest features of Windows 7, along with some file management, and control panel items. QuickBooks 2011 will cover charts-of-accounts and setting up a small business in computer format instead of ledger sheets.

HCC also offers online classes at www.ed2go.com/haywood. New classes begin on June 20 and July 18. Registrations for online classes must be submitted at least 5 days prior to class beginning date.
