Course Planning & Enrolment
(N.B. Only paid up members of SeniorNet Motueka and paid up members of Nelson SeniorNet can enrol in courses)
- Computer Awareness Course
By taking the computer awareness course you will get a basic grounding which will help you to follow later courses more easily. New members will be put on a waiting list for this course and advised when a place becomes available. However, if you have previous computer experience, you can discuss your starting point with the course coordinator.
The club recommends that beginners will benefit most from completing courses in the following sequence:
• Introduction to Word Processing
• Saving Documents and Photos to Folders
• Manage your computer
After gaining your initial computer confidence, members can follow their interests in a number of other course areas click here to see other course details.
