Start at the beginning and get a great foundation of information, whether you are new to Macs, or a Windows switcher. This class is great for Seniors and Beginners! We will cover the Mac Operating System (OS X), including everything you need from getting set up, to looking around, to getting work done, to printing. We’ll take out the mystery and fear of using your computer so that you enjoy communicating with family, friends, and work.
The class will be recorded and saved in “My Class Recordings” for you to review at your convenience!
Although this is a beginner class, we specialize in “what you don’t know you don’t know,” so even intermediate Mac users will learn new and useful tricks.
Novice Macintosh users who want to be more comfortable with their computers.
A Macintosh computer (optional).
Jamie Pollock is a iPad and iPhone expert. A member of the Apple Consultants Network, he has taught hundreds of people how to use Apple technology to improve their quality of life.
