Friendly group tuition in classes of 10 students with adequate helpers and interesting take home course notes. Informative and friendly Monthly General Meetings and HELP Sessions and also Genealogy; Digital Photography; and Creative Writing Special Interest Groups. On 29 March 2000 the inaugural meeting of Computer Pals for Seniors-Epping (CPS-E) was held in the Epping Creative Centre with 170 people present. Current membership exceeds 400 with tuition available to all in lessons of one and one quarter hours duration.
The club has always been blessed with a keen and conscientious group of tutors and helpers (all volunteer members of the Club) and gradually they have developed a portfolio of different computer courses to maintain the interest of members in continuing to expand their knowledge of computing technology. The courses are regularly reviewed and refined and the Management Committee continually examines the need to provide new courses to stimulate the interest of members. Friday afternoons are devoted to a weekly meeting for trainers and helpers.
At Epping we do not have training on Apple Computers; however we are now offering iPad and iPhone Workshops on an irregular basis when needed.
