Are you new to computing? Do you wish there were a course that could teach you the basics of how to use a computer? Wish computing terminology was explained in an easy to understand way?

This course is perfect for complete beginners to help increase your confidence in using a computer. This course will start at the beginning and explain how to use a computer device. You will learn how to find and use applications and how to navigate around a computer interface. Time will be allocated in each lesson for you to ask questions to clarify anything you do not understand.

Please note, this course is taught in various locations.

There are no formal entry requirements to join this course.

Classes are two hours long, held over three weeks.

Your progress will be assessed by your course tutor through participation in group discussions and activities.
