Course testimonials:

  • Easy to understand. Teacher was great. Easy to get to location.

  • I thought Emma our Trainer was excellent. I enjoyed it very much I now know how to use my iPad. Thank you very much.
  • Emma, the facilitator was an excellent communicator, giving one to one help, explaining everything and making the course very enjoyable. I look forward to the advanced class.
  • Love it, Excellent instructions!
  • Actually learnt something ! There should be more tech courses for seniors who are not aiming to join workforce.
