MOS or A+ Certification Prep
In partnership with Cuyahoga Community College, we are offering MOS (Microsoft Office Specialist) and CompTIA A+ Certification training. These certifications add strength to your clients' resumes and increase their return to work aptitude.

The program starts with seven weeks at Townsend and concludes with five weeks at Tri-C's Advanced Training Technology Center. At Townsend, students will gain skills in the most recent versions of Word, Excel and PowerPoint as well as soft skills needed in a modern office environment. At Tri-C, they will be prepared to pass the exams for their certification. Referrals will progress through both Townsend and Tri-C as a supportive learning community scaffolded throughout by Townsend's professional staff.

Also, we offer help determining if a referral is a good candidate for the program through our situational assessment.
Work Adjustment
Specifically designed to ease the transition for people with disabilities, workers with injuries, and veterans returning to the workplace, our innovative immersion approach to learning allows us to offer more.

• An open environment allows students to work individually or collaboratively.

• Communication skills, teamwork, problem solving, time management, organization, and self-motivation are built in to the program.

• Proficiency in MS Office through carefully designed "hands-on" tasks.

• A nurturing and safe learning environment designed to address the whole person.

Job Skills Training
The expansive curriculum offered at our distinctive learning center is more than just computer training. We provide learning opportunities specifically designed to help adults with employment barriers. We understand the intricacies of today’s fast-paced and competitive work environment.
Our training modules address not only computer literacy but also the interpersonal communication and professional development skills critical to successful, long-term employment.
Situational Assessment
The Situational Assessment is a two to three week placement in the same simulated office environment where we offer work adjustment and training. During this period, we are able to evaluate a referral’s aptitude for learning clerical and computer skills as well as their physical adjustment to an office setting. Our assessment includes CAPS and COPS to help find the best placement for our clients.

ACT/SAT Test Prep
Nowhere is our motto of Learning to Learn more relevant than in the world of standardized testing. Learning the format, design, and style of a test is just as important as knowing the content, so our SAT/ACT philosophy is to enable students to think like the test-makers.

This unique approach allows Townsend students to spot wrong answers, avoid traps, and use simple logic to maximize their scores. Townsend also understands how important confidence is to test-taking, and strives to give students the advantage of going into test day knowing they are prepared. These methods, as well as reviews of the most essential concepts on the test, give Townsend students the skills necessary to succeed!

With former Townsend students scattered throughout the Ivy League, Johns Hopkins, Georgetown, Vanderbilt, and many other premier colleges and universities, we offer a proven track record of achievement. In this increasingly competitive collegiate landscape, let Townsend help you meet your academic goals and test your best!
