I am excited to announce that I am offering something that my clients have been asking for: “Do you do training on computers?” The answer is YES!

Many of my clients self-describe themselves as “computer illiterate”, and in many cases - no disrespect intended - I must agree. I frequently hear questions like:

l “What’s a taskbar and where do I find it?”
l “How do I find my desktop?” “I don’t have a desktop computer; I have a laptop”
l “How would I know if I am on the internet, or not?”
l “What’s a browser?”
l “How do I find an APP? What is an APP?”

While no question is dumb or silly, these indicate an unfamiliarity with the basic components of your Windows computer. If this describes you, then this training program is designed for you.

So … starting in August, I am offering a year long “live” training program “Learn Computer 101.”

HOW: 30-minute lesson plus 30-minute open questions, led by Linda over Zoom
WHEN: 4th Friday of every month from 1 -2 pm for a year, starting August 25th - ending July 2024
COST: $25 a month - or one-time pay of $250 (saving $50) - one hour of my time and expertise at 50% discount.
TOPICS - one a month, showing how to make your computer easier for you to use: taskbar, start menu, apps, desktop, browsers, bookmarks, tabs, pinning, software updating, Internet/Wi-Fi, maximize/minimize/close windows, file explorer, e-mail, passwords, security protection.
l Glossary of Windows terms
l Documented lesson plan each month
l Video replay of each Zoom session
l Open office hours with Linda - 2nd Friday each month from 1-2 over Zoom

OUTCOME: At the end of the year, you will be comfortable with your Windows computer and know how to make it easier for you to use. Members of the pilot training course found it valuable and made it easier to make the computer work better for them.

Enrollment opens on July 21st. I will be calling my clients. If you think this is for you, call me at 239-567-0104 to find out more and enroll. I am limiting the number of attendees in this Learn Computer 101 training to 50 members. Enrollment ends on August 4th, and will not open again for a year.

I am committed to protect your computers and provide you value at an affordable price.
