Dickson County Adult Education Programs


The Computer Lab
Open Tuesday and Thursday - 4 to 6:30 PM *

The Computer Lab at the Burns Adult Learning Center was opened in July 1998 to enhance the learning opportunities of GED students, adult high school students, and Families First students by providing them with additional tools with which to improve their skills, not only in the basic education area but in elective subject matter as well. The software available on the computers covers a broad range of materials: Keyboarding, computer concepts, GED practice tests in the five areas of competence, and employment-related skills. The Lab is staffed at all times by a certified teacher who has a working knowledge of the computers and the software.
