Course testimonials:

  • I like these short courses on line and appreciate them being subsidised. I’m unlikely to attend any physical courses until there’s a vaccination for covid19 or at least a lot more known about it. Even then, doing short courses like this online are a lot more convenient as they adapt well to zoom and there’s no commuting time.
  • Tutor is very responsive to everybody's issues, and is also very inclusive.
  • Wendy has the ability to explain technology using everyday language. I receive Choice for Computers but find it is comprehensible. I finished this course feeling I had a much greater understanding of passwords, problems, security etc. It was explained in a clear and logical manner. Thank you Helen Nancarrow
