Several years ago a challenge was given to technology instructor Rick A. Morelan. Take downsized workers with little or no experience with computers or technology and turn them into industry certified technology experts.

This new approach has vivid pictures on almost every page that shows what you should see on your computer screen as you work through the material, and downloadable content, home practice labs, software, and fun review games available from the joes2pros web site.
