Computer classes offered to South Okanagan seniors

Seniors wanting to learn how to better use their computers you may now do so by joining the Penticton Seniors’ Drop-in Centre.

For seniors wanting to learn how to better use their computers, laptops, tablets, and iPads, you may now do so by joining the Penticton Seniors’ Drop-in Centre.

Computer Lab drop-ins and classes have been added to the many programs available at the centre. Techs and instructors are available to guide you in better use of your device in classes. Drop-in sessions are designed to assist in solving the problems many of us experience.

The lab is available for ‘Drop-In’ sessions on Monday and Wednesday afternoons from 1-3 p.m. for those 50 and older.

Currently, there are classes in Windows 7 and 8 Beginners, Windows 10 Beginners, iPad, and Intermediate Apple. Registrations are now being taken for classes in January through to March 2016.

Classes in Photoshop, PrintMaster, Genealogy, Photo Memory Albums, and more could be offered if volunteer instructors come forward. Contact the Penticton Seniors Drop-In Center if you are interested.

Further information on classes offered or access to the computer lab during drop-in hours, please contact the welcome desk at the Drop-In Center or www.pentictonseniors.org.
