CIT Computer Training Fall Term Now in Session

The CIT Training Program’s fall term of computer classes is now open for registration. With over 120 different topics, more than 20 of them new, there is something to help everyone become more productive. Classes, as always, are available free of charge to NIH staff.

Are you part of the new trend of employees periodically working from home? Does your group need to collaborate with colleagues in remote locations? If so, Home Networking Fundamentals, Working from Home—Understand the Technologies, Breeze 5 and Podcasting at NIH may be of interest to you.

CIT has added another class to a popular list of Excel classes: Creating PivotTables & Charting in Excel 2003. Other personal computing classes include Macintosh OS X Tips and Tricks; Adobe Acrobat–Introduction; and Word Topics: Reviewing and Tracking.

There is also a new class titled Wiki Introduction along with regular web development training for users with many levels of experience. A wiki is a type of web site that allows multiple users to add, remove or modify content quickly and easily. This seminar will give examples of wikis and show how this new collaborative technology will help you to share information with the NIH community and others.

This term has added a number of new grants-related classes including ECB Data Administration– Basic and Advanced; and eRA Workshop–Applying for NIH Grants Electronically.

Scientific seminars make up nearly 40 percent of the courses; most are designed to deliver valuable information in less than a day. New classes include NCBI’s Identification of Disease Genes to Phenotypes, Clustering: How Do They Make Those Dendrograms and Heat Maps, Gene Synthesis Using DNAWorks, Introduction to Rosetta on the Biowulf Cluster, Database Design–Modeling and Normalization, LaserGene Introduction and LaserGene Hands-on Workshop.
