Most people have never had any sort of training on a PC, tablet or smartphone, which means that at best they get by.
Do you recognise any of the following?
- Frustration at not being able to find what you are looking for.
- Documents or emails that go missing.
- Receiving an email with an attachment and not knowing if it is safe or how to view or save it.
- Ending up somewhere on a page or application and not knowing how you got there – or how to get back to where you were.
- Just wanting to do something supposedly simple like printing a photo or document, or writing an email with an attachment and for some reason it doesn’t work.
There are dozens of similar scenarios and more often than not this frustration means a lot of people don’t make effective use of their computer or their other technology. For home users and many older people this can lead to a rejection of the PC as a useful tool. In the workplace this can be frustrating and also be a financial cost to businesses in terms of lost hours and maybe even lost opportunities. These are common issues which we help customers with every day.
We offer training on all aspects of computers, laptops, Macs, phones and tablets, both software and hardware. Whether you simply wish to become more confident, find those files and back them up or generally find your way around – we can help.
We aim to design our courses so that all attendees gain the maximum benefit, so as far as possible we try to match abilities and levels so that no-one is left behind or bored! In our view, age is no barrier to making the most of technology!
As well as running our standard courses (Windows 10, Organising your photos and documents, Safer Surfing) we also offer some new ones in 2017, including Microsoft Office applications – Word, Excel and Powerpoint and also Apple Mac basic training.
Another new course this year is the “Internet of Things (IOT)” providing an insight into how homes can be automated and our lives made safer and more comfortable through appropriate use of technology – explained so that everyone can appreciate it and get an idea of what it’s all about – without any unnecessary jargon!
Our other new course is “Setting up your mobile phone or tablet”. We all have mobile phones but very few people have them set up to make full use of their capabilities or more importantly provide the benefits and help that these devices are capable of.
We specialise in helping those who may be that bit older or who have found getting to grips with the computer and technology a challenge; see our many testimonials.
The training can be in groups or one-to-one. Either for individuals who would like to gain more confidence or learn to carry out specific tasks, or businesses that need their staff to learn the tips, tools and techniques to make the most effective use of their PCs. Sessions can be on-site, local to you (at a hotel or conference centre), anywhere in Dorset, Somerset or Wiltshire, or at our offices in Shaftesbury.
In addition, we now offer Remote Computer Training via the web. This takes the form of an interactive live presentation, with course material shared between participants, audio and video, plus the ability to provide feedback, ask questions, review etc. This is ideal if you wish to be trained in the comfort of your own home or office at a time that suits you.
For businesses and employees, if you would like to learn more about specific Office Applications such as Word, Excel or Powerpoint or create the perfect cv, report or presentation, or prepare for the new job or going back to work, we have specific courses which can get you to the level required.
