    I have been wanting to know how to keep my home computer secure. At work I asked the Technology Dept. to teach something, but they are so busy with what they do, my suggestion was not heard. The material in your class gives me an understanding of terms, how to use software, how to care for my computer as well as take care of my computer at work. I have taken many FEMA preparedness courses and find this one of immediate practical use. Thank you for letting me be a student.
