MARYSVILLE — The Marysville Goodwill Job Training and Education Center, located at 9315 State Ave., will begin registering people May 11 for free classes, in their eight-week session from May 26-July 16.

These courses are tailored toward those with significant barriers to employment, and are designed to teach them valuable job-seeking and job-retention skills, in subjects ranging from English to computers.

Classes tend to fill up quickly, and sign-ups are conducted on a first-come, first-served basis, so those who are interested are encouraged to sign up as soon as possible.

The following classes will be offered:

- English for speakers of other languages, including basic, intermediate and literacy classes for adults who are learning or want to learn English.

- Basic computer classes. These introductory courses are targeted toward people with little to no computer experience, and include information on basic Windows tools, basic Word documents, files and folders, the Internet and e-mail.

- Computer fundamentals.

- Microsoft Word.

- Microsoft Excel.
