NIB’s Professional Mastery of Office Technology for Employment (ProMOTE) training program provides advanced training to assistive technology users who are blind or have low vision. Starting with the basics of understanding computers and software, ProMOTE’s immersive training model emulates modern offices, mixing formal instruction with time-sensitive project-based work that simulates the rigor and collaboration of the workplace. By the end of the four-week program, ProMOTE graduates have mastered Microsoft Word, Excel, Outlook and PowerPoint, as well as internet research and creating accessible documents.
ProMOTE is designed for students who have intermediate knowledge of the assistive technology they use, but may have learning gaps or need additional training to be competitive in the job market.
