Background: As Adelaide is a small city there are few opportunities
outside of TAFE Diplomas or University to attend Computer Courses that
aren't devoted to Application Packages.
I have worked in training and computer repair for the past 17 years.
Where I have developed training courses for students, workers and the
unemployed. I'm currently delivering training courses to people returning
to the workforce at The Hut Community Centre. These courses are for
beginners and slightly more advanced users who need to gain confidence
in using computers. The courses are run on Ubuntu Linux thin clients.
As the first course would be a testing and further development of the
materials I don't want to charge these people much for the course if at
The first course would be aimed at Beginner Programmers with little or
no programming experience.
Course Outline might look like this.
