Computer Training Center

After walking through the external doors, you will pass through a second set of internal doors. The stairs are to your left, and the elevator to your right. The Computer Training Center is located on the second floor. If coming from the elevator, turn right; if coming from the stairs, walk straight ahead. Walk past the Reference Desk and look to the right for several rows of computers at the back of the room.
