    TYPE WRITING COURSE

    Regular Typewriting classes are conducted from 9.00 a.m. to 4.30p.m. For the year 2015), 112 rural girls underwent training in tailoring in two batches (June and November) and government examinations were conducted for these girls. Certificates were issued to these rural girls who have successfully completed this type writing training. Out these girls, 22 of them were sent for Government Lower Typewriting Examinations. Other than the rural girls, there is a heavy demand from our own college students both boys and girls for the typewriting training. It has been made compulsory for the First year B.Sc. computer Science students to join the typewriting classes. These boys are also encouraged to go for the Government Lower and Higher Grade Typewriting Examinations. This will help to enhance the employment potentialities of the students even after the completion of the B.Sc. Degree course.
