2015 Courses

Have you decided which courses you would like to take next year? February will be upon us before we know it. How about one of these;

  • Demystifying Windows 8.1
  • What can I do on the Internet
  • Email using Windows Live Mail
  • Managing the Data on your PC
  • Managing and Editing Photos
  • iPad Basics
  • or just a quick refresher with the Introduction to Computers.

All these courses will be held during the First Term of 2015 plus the Tablet (iPad and Android), How do I…? and Q & A Workshops.

Would you like to join our Tutors group – it’s a great way to keep up with the latest technology?


Make sure that you look over our Web site during the holiday break – find out when the First Term courses are being held and relax with one of the interesting articles prepared just for you.
