MARYSVILLE — The Marysville Goodwill Job Training and Education Center, located at 9315 State Ave., will register people March 1-2 for free classes, in their eight-week session from March 15 through May 6.

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.

Classes in English for Speakers of Other Languages will be offered, including basic, intermediate and literacy classes for adults who are learning or want to learn English. ESOL classes are set to include ESOL Basic, ESOL Level 1 and Level 2, and ESOL Computers.

Classes will likewise be offered to prepare students for the Naturalization Test necessary to gain United States citizenship.

Introductory computer courses will be 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 classes are set to include computer basics, Microsoft Word and job readiness, the latter of which will teach students how to use computers to search for jobs on the Internet and write resumes, among other skills.

For class availability and enrollment information, you may contact Gusti Clark, program specialist for the Marysville Goodwill Job Training and Education Center, at 360-657-4058 or gusti.clark@seattlegoodwill.org.
