Courses for Seniors

Recently purchased a computer, or iPad or Android tablet, but not sure how to use it or get the best out of it?  All seems too hard and don’t know where to start?  The world of technology can seem confusing sometimes, but our experienced trainers can simplify the process and get you started.  Let us show you how to fully utilize your technology.  You will learn all about new technologies at a comfortable pace in a relaxed environment.

Tech Savvy Seniors:

Our Computers for Seniors course will help you build confidence in using computers and the internet.  It cover basic computer skills, how to connect and use the internet, fun things to do online, how to stay safe online, introduction to emails and how to use Skype to stay in touch with family and friends.  Connect with social media – a great way to keep up with the grandchildren.

Have an iPad or Android tablet?  Our Introduction to Tablets course covers the difference between a tablet and computer, the hardware and basic interface of a tablet, touchscreen and gestures, installing and using apps such as games, web browser, and communication tools, as well as social media and Skype to keep in touch with family and friends.   Thinking of travelling?  These handy devices can lighten your load.  They won’t replace your suitcase but they can replace your camera, video, books, CDs and do a lot more. 

An iPad can provide hours of entertainment and is a great device to communicate with family and friends through Skype, FaceTime or social media (Facebook or Instagram).  Let us show you how to upload your happy snaps or create a travel blog so everybody can be jealous of the great time you are having!

Silver Fox Computer help drop-in Sessions:

Have you heard about our “Silver Fox” weekly computer  drop-in classes? Held every Monday from 3pm to 5pm at both our Kiama and Shoalhaven campuses, these sessions are designed for anyone that has a quick question or a computer issue that they are “stumped on”. If you are working on a project such as a newsletter or digital photo album, bring it with you so our “Silver Fox” tutors and your class mates will help you to forge ahead.

Please keep in mind that hardware and some technical issues will need to be handled by an IT maintenance firm. Why not bring a friend along and make it a social outing.  Keep your mind active and don’t get left behind.  Become tech savvy and impress your family and friends! No need to book, just turn up!
