Computer Skills and Applications

Computer skills are needed in most professions, and basic computer courses are required for the majority of college majors. Courses offered in Computer Skills and Applications (CSA) serve a broad cross section of student needs at Greenville Technical College. The curriculum is continually revised to ensure course content is current.

  • CPT 170 (Microcomputer Applications) focuses on Microsoft Office Applications and gives students hands-on instruction in the use of the software applications used in business today.
  • CPT 270 (Advanced Microcomputer Applications) gives the student more expertise in Office Applications and fully prepares them for the digital workplace. 

What you’ll learn in the program

CSA assesses the student’s computer skills when they first apply to the college, and place the student in the appropriate computer class based on the assessment. Each of the programs at the college will require its own level of computer competency. At a minimum, each student will learn basic computer skills, but they can also acquire skills in office productivity software such as Microsoft Word, Excel, Access and PowerPoint. These skills are critical to student success and are required in every program on the campus.
