Open Entry Courses

Students taking any of our open-entry courses have the opportunity to set their own pace, working independently on assignments and monitoring their own progress. They can expect to dedicate at least 1.5 hours a week and complete at least one lesson a week. Work for most courses can be completed from home, though students need to appear in person to turn in work, get coaching, and take tests.

For more information and to receive an add code, please attend one of the CABT scheduled orientations during the first two weeks of the semester.

If you can’t make it to a scheduled orientation, you may arrange an individual orientation. Stop by the CABT staff desk in the Computer Technology Center, call (831) 479-6277, or e-mail cabt@cabrillo.edu.


Keyboarding

  • CABT 210 Basic Computer Keyboarding

  • CABT 110A Computer Keyboarding — Alphabet Keys

  • CABT 110B Computer Keyboarding — Numbers/Symbols

  • CABT 110C Computer Keyboarding — Speed Development


CABT 210 and 110A are both designed for beginners with little to no experience with typing or computer keyboarding. CABT 110B and 110C are at the intermediate to advanced level.

Work for all of these courses requires the software Keyboarding Pro, available at the Cabrillo Computer Technology Center (CTC). If students wish to work at home, there is a version of the software available for purchase and download at the Cabrillo bookstore.
