Radio Shack, a division of the Tandy Corp., is opening a Tandy Learning Center at 6051 S. State, one of 123 learning centers to be opened in cities in the United States and Puerto Rico.

The center will offer MS-DOS software classes such as WordPerfect, MicroSoft Word, Lotus, 1-2-3 dBase III Plus and Introduction to Personal Computers and DOS."Students can learn in a hands-on environment using Tandy computers," said David Goyne, Radio Shack's vice president of support services. "A complete understanding of each concept is assured before the students move to the next level."

He says the method is so effective that an 85 percent minimum proficiency level is guaranteed upon completion of the course.
