Basic PC Maintenance - Part-time


Course outline

Are you interested in learning how to upgrade your PC, or how to install a new operating system safely? Do you worry about losing the information that is stored on your computer, either because of computer breakdown or because of viruses or hacking?

This course is designed to teach people who have little knowledge about the inner workings of computers, how to get the best out of the machine that you have, and how to protect your data from attack.

If you work full time and are busy we know that it can be very hard to make time for learning something new, which is why this course takes place one evening a week for a couple of hours to allow you to fit it into your already busy schedule.

We are looking forward to sharing our enthusiasm for computers with you.
