For an optimal learning environment, class size is limited to 3 people. The small class size ensures that individuals have the support they need to learn at a suitable pace. Training sessions focus primarily on providing relevant knowledge and practical computer experience to build both the user’s confidence in computer use and their level of competence. Classes have been appropriately designed to improve skills and efficiency in using popular Microsoft Office business software. For more specific training needs, individualised training and corporate group classes are available.


Classes are offered depending on demand during business hours, with the possibility of evening and weekend courses being run. Please enquire for more information.
