The George Town Public Library will offer a free 12-week computer course on Saturday, 5 March.
Offered in partnership with Micro Matrix principal Sandra Cantron, the course begins at 10.15am and classes are scheduled to run for two hours every Saturday.
The computer basics course covers a wide range of areas, including general information technology concepts, the internet, Outlook and Microsoft Office.
“It’s ideal for beginners and aims to equip participants with essential skills for lifelong learning and personal development,” said Community Librarian Deborah Powery-Zureigat.
“We know that times are difficult, so we’re happy to partner with generous people like Ms Catron and positively serve our community.”
Cayman Islands Public Library Service Acting Director Juliet Lawson said: “Information technology has revolutionised every facet of society and it is a fundamental skill for every individual.”
Only 10 slots are available for this first class, so anyone who is interested is encouraged to register as soon as possible using forms available from reception at the George Town Public Library.
On completion, participants who attend each class, participate in homework assignments, and pass the course assessment at the end of the 12th week will receive a completion certificate.
Free handbooks and refreshments will also be provided.
