TechLab Certificates

Residents who have been involved in training in the TechLab now have certificates to show that they have done some training on the laptops provided. To receive the certificates residents had to show the rest of the class a presentation they produced using Microsoft PowerPoint. The presentation had to be all about ourselves and have at least 8 slides. Not only did we receive a certificate but we also got a printed portfolio of all the work we did and a memory stick.
