Most people assume the Beginning classes only cover very basic skills, but we actually cover many other things including tips and shortcuts you may not be aware of.

Q - I have a Mac. How different is that from a PC? Would I benefit from taking your Windows-based classes?
A - That's a difficult question to answer. There are many similarities between PCs and Macs nowadays, but there are just as many differences, especially when it comes to the user interface (where you access commands). For this reason we hesitate to make a recommendation on whether or not to take a PC-based class.
