Introduction to computers

ARE you confused by computers and baffled by desktop publishing?

Well, help is at hand with a new block of ‘introduction to computers’ courses ready to hit the on switch at Hucknall College on Portland Road.

The first begins next Tuesday (August 7), with further instalments pencilled in to start on Tuesday September 18 and Tuesday November 7. All of these are morning courses.

There are Friday afternoon versions starting next week( August 10), September 21 and November 9.

While for those who work, there are is a new evening course launching on Wednesday September 12.

The idea is to get those on the course comfortable with basic computing equipment before learning simple computer skills through to understanding the Internet.

There is a small hourly fee for those who enrol, although those who are on means-tested benefits may be eligible for the fees to be waived.
