Computer Friendly

As well as free drop in sessions, see below, Computer Friendly offers a range of other courses - see the list of courses for June/July. As part of the ‘My St Albans Account’  initiative we are offering ten free places on our ‘Starting off with’ courses for people who either haven’t joined the Internet or have a new tablet/laptop and want to learn about it from scratch.

The ‘My St Albans Account’ initiative is funded by St Albans District Council to encourage those who can to use the new easier way of accessing the common services on their website. Details are on our website  here: http://www.computerfriendlystalbans.org.uk/mystalbans.html . We introduce this on our SOW courses and will be running more free workshops in September and October.
