Meet your Instructor
Mrs. Bainum will start teaching our Microsoft® Office classes at our new location in Downtown Upland. She has been teaching computer applications courses for over 25 years. In 2014, Mrs. Bainum joined the College of Engineering at CBU as an adjunct professor. She has been working as an adjunct instructor at Riverside Community College since early 1997. During this time, she has had the opportunity to help many students learn and become proficient in using various computer applications including the Microsoft® Office suite.
She has continually modified lesson plans to keep up with various software version updates and has taught courses in both traditional face-to-face and online formats. She has also had many opportunities to teach students with special needs, along with students who come from diverse backgrounds and is able to adapt lesson plans to accommodate various learning styles. She is especially passionate about watching new students, who may start out somewhat intimidated with regard to using computers, transform into students who feel confident and comfortable using their newly acquired skills.
Keeping up with the Times
California Computer Schools has always taken pride in our unique style of training so the current stay at home orders presented quite the challenge. Thankfully, with a bit of innovation and a creative setup, we're confident we've met that challenge.
With our new hybrid training model you now have the ability to join us onsite at our school or use your internet to participate remotely (via Zoom).
“The instructor was well prepared and able to focus on helping each of us individually even though we were an online group. It was a hybrid class, so she had students in class at the same time. She also took time to help answer questions on our breaks to make sure that we got what we needed from the class.”

How to Register
In order to accommodate the hybrid learning model, we've reorganized our classes from full day sessions to 3-hour sessions. Each 3-hour session is a standalone class with designated topics. Please choose from the list of software to view subject matter offerings and class descriptions.
Once you identify courses that interest you, you can view the listing under the course description or the Calendar to see if a class is currently on the schedule for you to join. If the class you are looking for isn't available, or you would prefer a different time slot, choose from the open time slots on the Calendar or Schedule page. When checking out and completing your registration, indicate which course you would like to schedule for the time slot and whether or not you would like to attend onsite or online.
If you have any questions, please feel free to Contact Us or call 909-981-6331.
