Whitwick & District U3A - Computing Group - Refresher
Aimed at people with a basic working knowledge of PCs, it is intended to provide further information of how to get more from your PC, or to remind you of things you may have forgotten. The sessions will mainly use Windows 10 with coverage of Windows 8.1 where appropriate. Programs such as the Microsoft Office suite and a variety of other, often free, programs will also be addressed. The topics may range over how to use various programs to how things work. Suggestions for topics are always welcome.
These sessions will be held monthly and you can enrol for as many or few (even if it is just one) as you wish. Places are limited and will be allocated on a first come, first served basis. You can check, make, or cancel your bookings by using this page in the Members' Area. Using this online booking has advantages for both the group leader and the attendees. By doing so you:
- Will get immediate confirmation of your booking or place on the waiting list
- Receive email confirmation as a follow-up
- Be automatically emailed if a place becomes available and you move up the waiting list
Of course you can still email or phone and these will be handled as soon as possible, but they do not have the immediacy of the online booking.
You can also opt in or out of automatic email reminders sent three days before a session using this page in the Members' Area.
Please note that these sessions are subject to a fee of £1 per session.
Most sessions will be on 1st Wednesday of the month 2.00 - 4.00pm.
