The Ravalli County Economic Development Authority (RCEDA), kicks off its 6th session of business planning and technology classes for summer starting with its first evening classes. Spreadsheet and accounting software classes will be offered from 6-9pm starting Thursday July 14th with QuickBooks. Excel starts the following Tuesday July 19th. “We have had requests for night classes and we wanted to try it out for the summer session and see what the response was”, says John Schneeberger of RCEDA. “We have had good attendance at our morning classes so we are using this to determine whether evening classes would be more convenient for business people.”
