Since our software training is designed around your specific needs, how and what we train is determined by the types of projects that you encounter and your level of experience. We do not recite software manuals, because that does not help much. We ensure that you can put to use what we teach, and in those cases where you need to know more (or need a reminder), we provide assistance after the training - usually at no additional charge.
Beginners learn in basic non-technical language the system operation, data backup strategies and general terminolgy. However, Macintosh beginners are not the only ones who need our services.
