Transitioning from working as a tradesperson to an office or desk position can be intimidating…
That's why we deliver new and innovative ways to meet the needs of injured workers and others seeking to gain key fundamental computer skills. The CLICK (Complete Learning in Computer Knowledge) Program was developed to help empower individuals who have been injured on the job and need to move into a different job role due to these injuries. The CLICK Program helps facilitate that transition, easing a worker not only into the computer world but the office atmosphere as well. Global Knowledge helps individuals fill the skills gaps they have and give them the confidence to be productive in the workforce.
Global Knowledge offers several exceptional courses to enhance an individual’s ability to achieve goals, enable re-entry into the workforce sooner, and build confidence in computer skills. Classes run on a regularly-scheduled, continuous-intake basis. For those with special needs, several of the courses can be customized for one-on-one training or with the assistance of Voice Recognition Technology.
Students will receive a course completion certificate at the end of any CLICK course they attend. Assessments are provided to WCB Case Workers indicating how the student performed and what areas need to be worked on further.
We offer a wide variety of short-term programs to help transition individuals into the workplace, including the following:

I would like to thank you for your instruction in this course. I felt that I learned a lot and am more comfortable using the programs covered in this course. It's very comforting to know that there are "easier ways" to accomplish required tasks. Thanks again.
