Instructional Videos

The videos within this site are meant to provide simple guidance in performing routine job-related tasks. Videos are grouped by specific topic and are generally in an order that they should be viewed. For example, the first video is often an introduction or possibly instructions on how to install a specific software.

All videos are closed captioned. Note: YouTube adjusts the quality of your video stream based on the speed of your Internet connection (bandwidth). If the video is not clear, try increasing the “quality” under “settings” in YouTube.

If you have suggestions for an instructional video that you'd like to see on this site, please contact Terry Kenney (

Instructional videos will be added to this site as they are produced.
