Basic Computer Training
In the last quarter of 2019, we identified the need to reach out to the members of our community that lacked the basic computer skills, access to the internet and personal computer. Hence we created a free basic computer training for members of the community with no background knowledge of how to operate the computer.
Training starts with identifying computer features. Below are some of the topics we treated in module 1
Know your computer
What is a computer
Types of computers
Components of a computer
The use of the CPU, the VDU, the mouse and the keyboard
Computer hardware and software
The operating systems
How to power on a computer
How to create, save, delete and retrieve a document
To get benefit from this free training you need a referral from the organisations below:
Changing Lives Doncaster
Doncaster Metropolitan Borough Council
Redeemed Christian Churches in Doncaster
