What People Are Saying
Feedback from our students...
Firstly, I am a senior citizen and I have attended about 6 lots of Tech Savvy Courses for Seniors held at Dubbo since August 2016.
Although I have a reasonable basic knowledge of computers, I found the courses very beneficial and this enabled me to experience a much wider use of the internet. I have much more confidence in such things as Gmail; Apps; Podcasts; Facebook; Youtube; as well as buying online. The smaller classes enabled a more comprehensive coverage of each topic.
I would definitely recommend to any senior citizen who is computer “illiterate” seeking to use computers, iPads, tablets etc. to enrol in these courses.Colin Selwood
