NEED SOME TRAINING?

All Training courses are now Pay what you can. There will be no set fees, and anything collected will be shared with the Legion.

 

Computer training is currently being conducted at the Nipigon Legion to allow for proper social distancing protocols. You are invited to bring your own computer/laptop/mobile device to follow the training using your own technology during the courses.

Courses all follow a standard presentation/seminar format with a large portion of time devoted to question and answer following the presentation. Question and answers can be on any technology subject from any level of experience during any course/seminar.

Basic computers and technology is an overview of most of the other courses and is a pre-requisite. A basic understanding of technology is essential for further training.
