Arapahoe/Douglas Works! Custom Training

Project Overview: Denver DataMan provided computer training services for Arapahoe/Douglas Works! (ADW!) Employment by Design. ADW! is a workforce center that was specifically established to move individuals from job dislocation to employed status as quickly as possible.

Denver DataMan developed materials focused on job skill readiness. Our curriculum highlighted the computer skills that people need to get hired in today’s competitive environment. Since we write our own curriculum we catered it to the specific needs of their clients.

These classes have revolved primarily on Microsoft Office applications but have also included foundational computer skills, navigating the Internet, and skills for creating and editing digital resumes and cover letters.

Denver DataMan also provided listings for all classes on the Denver DataMan website to help support the program.

“Denver Data Man is a recognized leader in high quality computer training in the Denver Metro area. Their unyielding commitment to providing exceptional and sustainable training has provided marketable computer skills to 667 Arapahoe/Douglas workforce participants. Their impeccable customer and community service establishes them as a leader in the industry.” Barb Wieker, Aurora, CO.
