If you are 60 years of age or over and you are at ground zero when it comes to computer skills, here is a course designed especially for you.

Computer training for beginners will take place beginning on September 30 at St. Mungo’s Church in Cushing. The training is aimed at seniors who have little or no experience with computers but who wish to learn, with a focus on using the internet and some practical advice about internet security. Training will be adapted to the needs of the participants and organizers will supply a Windows-based laptop to each student during the classes.

The training will take place for two hours each week for 10 weeks. Each Friday, an English class will be presented from 10 a.m. until noon and a French class will follow from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m.

The training will take place at the community hall of St-Mungo’s church (661 route des Outaouais, Brownsburg-Chatham) and it is free for all residents of the MRC d’Argenteuil who are 60 years of age or older. Classes are limited to 10 students.

The courses are made possible thanks to funding from three sources: Argenteuil—La Petite-Nation MP Stéphane Lauzon (federal government) provided $25,000 worth of support for the initiative, while the municipality of Brownsburg-Chatham provided $3,000 and the Argenteuil regional government (MRC) kicked in $500.
