Courses

SeniorNet courses are based on personal computers that have Microsoft operating systems i.e. Windows 7 and Windows 10. We also have courses available about tablets. To get the full benefit from your courses you should have a computer at home on which to practise and apply your new skills.

Classes are held from 9.30 – 11.30, or 1.00 – 3.00. Classes will be filled on a first come first served basis, and you will be contacted by the tutor advising you of the time and date your class will begin.

We have a range of single lesson mini courses which enhance general computer skills or courses already already completed. Dates and times of these courses will be advised to members by email, or through our newsletter, or will be put into your course calendar.
