Is this right for you? 

In order to help ensure your success, you must have a strong working knowledge of computers:

  • You need to be able to use a mouse and computer keyboard
  • You need to be able to shut down and turn on the computer properly
  • You need to have the to navigate through multiple screens
  • You need to understand how to navigate the computer’s files and desktop environment
  • You need basic knowledge of programs including how to launch and close a computer program
  • You need to understand how to use e-mail
  • You need to know how to use the Internet
  • You need to know how to create, name, save and delete a folder

  • A desktop/tower computer with a separate monitor is recommended. (Laptops are okay to use but you will want a second monitor)
  • Windows 7 is accepted by most clients (*Windows 8, Vista and Mac OSX may be supported for a limited set of opportunities) ***My advise would be to have a Windows 7 computer so you don’t limit the clients you can partner with.
  • At least 4GB of RAM (you can get by with 2GB but your computer will not be able to handle the client programs very well with less than 4GB)
  • At least 1 GHZ Dual Core Processor
