Course Description

Have you always wanted to use the computer to collaborate with others on work and passion projects but experience ‘brain freeze’ and do not know how to proceed when confronted with the assortment of navigation buttons and icons on your desktop? You are not alone. It is normal for baby boomers or Gen Xers among us, who are not digital natives and have not attended formal computer training, such as our 16hrs – ICDL Computer Essential (Windows) course, to experience anxiety when required to operate a computer.

 

With the recent social distancing guidelines brought about by the pandemic leading to businesses moving online and the public replacing social gatherings with virtual hangouts, it is time to put a stop to this anxiety to get confident with using the computer.

Imagine yourself using software applications to enhance your work productivity, doing research on your favourite hobbies and haunts to enrich your life, saving all your files with a systematic file management system so that you can retrieve your files with ease, using hardware to back up your files to ensure that your work is intact even when your computer malfunctions, and putting in place security systems to keep your files and computer secure from online threats… The improvement to your quality of life can be quite significant if you can do these tasks confidently.

 

In this 16-hrs ICDL Computer Essential (Windows) course, you will be given step-by-step guidance to execute the above mentioned tasks so that you can use your computer with confidence. The possibilities are endless when you can cast aside your doubts and fears to embrace the digital age.
