Sequim’s Kelley Bluthenthal recently passed the A+ Certification Test through online coursework taken through the North Olympic Peninsula Skills Center in Port Angeles.
Coursework included how to build, configure and maintain a personal computer, as well as learning the basics of networking and security. A+ Certification is a nationally recognized test for computer technicians.
Bluthenthal is the son of Vince and Diana Bluthenthal.
The Skills Center offers technical training for area high school students from Sequim, Port Angeles, Crescent-Cape Flattery and the Quillayute Valley school districts in a variety of areas, including automotive technology, broadcast media, building trades, collision repair, commercial arts, composites, cosmetology, culinary arts, criminal justice, fire science, green building trades, information technology, marine carpentry, medical careers and welding.
