The course is aimed at all those who are not familiar with the use of the Personal Computer (PC) and want to learn how to use it in a quick and easy way. It is designed to provide all the basic tools for a correct use of the operating system and the most common software in use on the market, including applications for surfing the internet and managing e-mail. The ideal students are therefore children, teenagers, teachers and more generally all those who need a PC for study or for work without having particular technical needs.
The full course has a duration of 24 hours (against 40/50 hours on average offered by the competition at much higher costs), and is structured to make sure that the lessons interfere as little as possible with the daily commitments or with your own time free.
