Technology classes for adults are offered on a regular basis and cover a variety of topics from computer basics to Microsoft Office software to special topics like cybersecurity.

 

Registration

Registration is required (unless otherwise noted) and opens on a specified date one month prior to the newsletter cycle (ex: December 15th for January and February). Registering for the first class in a designated series automatically enrolls you in all required sessions. All other classes require separate registration. Register online through our event calendar, by phone (847-429-4597), or in person. If you cannot attend a session you have registered for, please cancel so someone on the waitlist may attend.

 

Classroom Guidelines

Classes held in the Computer Training Room are limited to 15 participants. Classes begin at their scheduled times and run for 45-90 minutes, depending on the content. Late participants may not be admitted, and their spots may be given to participants on the waitlist.
