New Life with Tvoy Kurs

Before signing up for a Digital Literacy course at the Kurgan Tvoy Kurs Center, twenty-nine-year-old Sergei Kololeyev had no computer skills at all. Right after high school he was drafted into the army, and after the military service he worked in law enforcement, where his job left him no time for computers, until a firm decision to change careers finally brought him face to face with the need to update his digital literacy skills.

From a municipal newspaper Sergei learned that Open World, a local non-profit for children, had launched a Tvoy Kurs Center, and decided to sign up. During the training he was introduced to MS Office applications, learned to use e-mail and the Internet, and successfully passed the Digital Literacy Certificate Test.

Now Sergei works as a manager with a major retail chain. Since good computer skills were listed as one of the prerequisites for the job, his Digital Literacy Certificate and obvious ICT competence gave him an important competitive advantage during the job interview process, and enabled him to quickly build himself a good reputation in the new workplace. He is very happy with his new job and thankful to the Tvoy Kurs Center and the Digital Literacy program team for this wonderful chance to change his life.
